Do It Yourself !
The wiper blades of your car play a vital role in improving visibility during rain, fog and snow. Therefore it is important to make sure that your wiper blades are in good condition. Worn or damaged wiper blades are incapable of performing their task correctly and can even damage your windshield. The signs of a worn wiper blade are a warped shape or the streaks it leaves on your windshield. Worn out wipers are useless during heavy rainfall. Follow these simple instructions to replace your old wiper blades with new ones.

Automotive Batteries supply our vehicles with electrical energy to run any installed electrical system. These include on-board computers, headlights, multimedia centres, power windows and many others. The typical car battery has a lifespan of 1 to 2 years, after which its ability to hold a charge degrades rapidly. Once this happens your car will struggle or fail to start as the electricity required to activate the ignition and starting systems will be too low. At this point you will need to replace your old battery with a new one.
How does it work?
The first automotive manufacturer to offer an air-conditioning system for their vehicles was the Packard Motor Car Company from the USA in 1939. Due to multiple design problems, the system was not very successful. It had no thermostat to regulate the temperature and was very bulky and expensive. The idea, however, caught on and was further developed during the 1950’s. By the end of the 60’s more than half of all new cars sold in the USA came standard with air conditioning. Aftermarket AC installations also became quite common.
