ONE YEAR IS A LIFETIME FOR A WIPER
A wiper blade is mainly made out of rubber. But since rubber is a natural product it has a limited lifetime.
The job of the wiper blades is to remove water and dirt from the windscreen to give you a clear view of the road ahead. But after one year the blades become less effective due to extreme temperatures, water, dirt and UV rays. However, these are only some of the factors that can cause the rubber to harden and crack. The wiper blades are so important for visibility, they should be considered as an essential safety feature.
The price of original Volvo wiper blades starts at € 29
