Some common tools used for windshield wiper repair include adjustable wrenches and screwdrivers, as well as leak sealant for patching cracks in the washer fluid tank. However, some of the most common windshield wiper repairs can be done without the use of any special tools.
Cleaning and replacing windshield wiper blades are two wiper repairs that can be done without the use of tools. To clean the blades, pull the wipers out from the windshield, and wipe the blades down with hot soapy water. To replaced worn blades, find the release tab on the underside of the wiper, and slide the blade off. Put the new blade on by sliding it down the length of the wiper.
