10 Cheap Tips to Heat-Proof Your Ride

Your summer vacation plans probably don’t include a stop on the side of the road. Even if you don’t know the difference between your car’s axle and Axel Rose, these 10 tips will help your car beat the summer heat.

5. Replace Your Windshield Wipers

Most people remember to change their windshield wipers when they’re caught in a sudden downpour. Here’s an idea: go to the auto parts store when it’s sunny outside and pick up some new windshield wipers. (You might even get super-industrious and pick up an extra set to store in your trunk.)

Most auto parts stores will not only sell you new wiper blades – they’re actually go out to the parking lot and put them on for you at no charge. It’s best to replace the entire wiper blade, not just the rubber part.

If you do end up replacing the wipers yourself, go slow. Pay attention to how they’re coming off; sometimes it’s simple, sometimes it’s a little tricky. If they fly off the car when you turn them on, you probably didn’t do it right.
