Properly maintained windshields and windshield wiper blades are essential to a smooth driving experience. Your ability to see the road ahead is important, and obvious as this may seem on a clear, sunny day, it becomes critical at night or in inclement weather conditions. Jiffy Lube® inspects windshield wipers and the windows themselves so you feel comfortable on the road.
Clear vision is crucial when you’re behind the wheel. Jiffy Lube® can help keep your eye on the road by repairing minor chips and cracks in your windshield. Jiffy Lube Technicians inject a polymer into the affected area to repair your windshield. Getting this done as soon as possible after a damaging incident, such as a chip caused by a stone, can prevent a crack from spreading across the windshield and requiring a more costly replacement.
Windshield Wiper Blade Replacement
Over time, rubber elements in your windshield wiper blades break down due to oxidation and damage from the sun, becoming stiff and brittle. They also wear out from rubbing back and forth across the glass surface. Eventually, worn windshield wipers leave streaks and blurry spots, affecting your ability to see the road ahead. Each Jiffy Lube Signature Service® Oil Change includes a windshield wiper blade inspection. We also check the washer fluid level.
A special chemical treatment can be applied to exterior glass to help repel the accumulation of rain, snow, sleet and mist. Many Jiffy Lube® customers find the treatment improves defogging of the glass, the effectiveness of the wipers and/or the ease of clearing a snow-covered vehicle’s windows.
