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.
