  • Do not use gasoline, kerosene, paint thinner, or other solvents on or near them.
  • Do not attempt to move the wipers manually.
  • The use of a non-specified wiper blade could result in wiper malfunction and failure.
  • Do not allow the wiper arm to fall against the windshield, since it may chip or crack the windshield.
  • If the wiper arm receives too much force while pulling the blade, the center part may be damaged.
  • The wiper could not operate for approximately 10 seconds when the wiper is operated without washer fluid or the blades are frozen. This is not a malfunction, it is a wiper protection system activated by motor overload circuit within the wiper motor.
  • The front windshield should be cleaned with water hose and wiped with clean towel with wiper blades raised up. Also, the wiper blades should be wiped clean when the grease or wax is applied to the blades.


Commercial hot waxes applied by automatic car washes have been known to make the windshield difficult to clean.

And it is the responsibility of customers to wash and manage the vehicle with adequate methods and materials.
