How Often Should I Change My Windshield Wipers On My Car? How Much Do They Cost?
How Can I Do This Myself?
I usually change my wiper blades near the start of winter and begining of spring. Wipers go through a lot in summer constantly exposed to heat and so on and are prone to cracking and wear. The same goes for winter, constantly exposed to the harsh elements.
Streaking, smearing or the blade no longer maintaining adequate pressure or contact with the windshield are all surefire signs that wiper blade replacement is due.
Many windshield wiper kits sold today come with adapters to fit most domestic and import vehicles and instructions for installation are either printed on the packaging or on a leaflet inside. Installation is relatively simple usually taking no longer than fifteen minutes. A small bladed screwdriver may be required for some models, most just snap into place.
Not all wiper blades are created equal, some wiper blades, particularly on the drivers side are longer in length to that of the passenger side. For example the drivers side may be 22" long while the passenger side may only be 19". Most parts stores can assist you in finding the correct size for your vehicle.
How much do you want to pay? You can pay up to $50 CDN for a set of premium blades, or a little less $15 to $25 for a set of budget blades. If my old wiper blades are in fair condition, I hang onto them until spring, in the event I need one in a pinch. Nows the time to stock up on winter windshield washer fluid as well!

Help Me On Finding A Car Window. I Need A Legitimate Company To Buy From.?
Help Me On Finding A Car Window. I Need A Legitimate Company To Buy From. I Have 2003 Grand Prix. It The Front Door Passenger Side, If That Any Help.
Its not rocket science. Find a car window from a junkyard and then put it in or pay someone to do it.
That's cheaper than calling a glass company out of the phone book.
But, you have to get the glass and then arrange for someone to put it in.
Calling a glass company, they come to you and install it. It will just cost about twice as much that way.
I Had A Huge Dent On My Car Door Serviced At My Car Manufacturer'S Collision Center A Few Weeks Ago, But Just Found Out The Window Doesn'T?
Work Anymore... Should I Bring It Back To Them? Will They Charge Me Extra To Fix It?
Ok, seeing a lot of half-a$$ed answers here. Let me give you the straight dope.
There are 2 kinds of repairs at a body shop. Customer pay and Insurance pay.
Customer pay is you go in and pay out of your own pocket for what you want done. You say what you want fixed, they write an estimate, and fix exactly what you want fixed. If you say, "fix this dent", they fix the dent, and will fix nothing else associated with it. SO...if the window was broke from whatever caused the dent, they would not fix that since you are paying out of pocket and didn't request it to be fixed.
If the window worked even WITH the dent, and they fixed the dent and now the window doesn't work as a result of their repair, they should be liable for fixing this. Chances are some reassembly tech didn't plug in the wire to the regulator and will be a simple fix. If they BROKE something during repair, they are liable for it even if it wasn't part of your repair estimate. Shops are liable for anything they damage.
If it is an INSURANCE PAY, this is a different story. When you take a car to be fixed from an accident and insurance is paying to repair the damage, the insurance company will pay to return the vehicle to the condition it was in prior to the accident. SO lets say you get hit in the door, and you have your side view mirror duct taped to the door, and it was done obviously before the accident occurred. You will get the dent and any accident damage fixed, but your duct taped mirror will still be there. Anything caused by the accident should be completely fixed. So if the window regulator mechanism is damaged from the accident, and wasn't repaired, then that should be 100% covered. Note that different insurance companies stipulate different methods for repair. Some will use 100% brand new OEM parts, some will use aftermarket parts (such as LKQ), and some will use used parts. This can also vary given the age of the vehicle. This is all controlled by the insurance company in question and not the dealer. Given the option, a repair shop will always use 100% brand new OEM parts because there isn't anything better to work with.
So whether the window will be fixed will depend on the myriad of things I outlined here, but armed with this information you should know exactly what's going on.
