It's important that you be able to see what's around your Toyota vehicle, no matter the weather outside. That's why you have windshield wipers. If you're fortunate, your Toyota also features a rear window wiper. It’s the metal arm at the back window or tailgate. It sweeps back and forth, allowing you to keep an eye out for approaching vehicles and emergency vehicle flashers.
Of course, that metal arm would damage the window glass if it made consistent contact. To avoid etching permanent grooves, your rear window wiper has a rubberized blade at the end. That wiper blade applies consistent pressure, sweeping away water and debris and preserving your ability to check behind you.
Unfortunately, wiper blades don’t last forever. When one starts to go bad, you need to replace it as soon as possible in order to avoid scratching the glass or risking the arm getting stuck and breaking.
How to Spot a Failing Rear Wiper Blade
Fortunately, there are signs indicating if your wiper blade is going bad due to age, overuse, or sun damage. They include:
