Hyundai i-30: Maintenance / Wiper blades

Hyundai i30 (PD) 2018-2021 Owner's Manual / Maintenance / Wiper blades

Blade inspection

Contamination of either the windscreen or the wiper blades with foreign matter can reduce the effectiveness of the windscreen wipers.

Common sources of contamination are insects, tree sap, and hot wax treatments used by some commercial car washes. If the blades are not wiping properly, clean both the window and the blades with a good cleaner or mild detergent, and rinse thoroughly with clean water.

NOTICE

To prevent damage to the wiper blades, arms or other components, do not:

  • Use petrol, kerosene, paint thinner, or other solvents on or near them.
  • Attempt to move the wipers manually.
  • Use non-specified wiper blades.

Information

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

Information

Wiper blades are consumable item and normal wear of the wipers may not be covered by your vehicle warranty.

Blade replacement

When the wipers no longer clean adequately, the blades may be worn or cracked, and require replacement.

NOTICE

To prevent damage to the wiper arms or other components, do not attempt to move the wipers manually.

NOTICE

The use of a non-specified wiper blade could result in wiper malfunction and failure.

NOTICE

  • In order to prevent damage to the bonnet and the wiper arms, the wiper arms should only be lifted when in the top wiping position.
  • Always return the wiper arms to the windscreen before driving.
