Brake-O-Rama How to Change Windshield Wipers

Having experienced a few showers already this summer, you probably have noticed that your windshield wipers are leaving more water than what they should. Brake-O-Rama recommends that if you notice the wipers leaving patches or puddles of water marks, to replaced the damaged or worn windshield wipers as they can be dangerous in wet-driving conditions.
If you are not sure how to do it, don’t fret. Brake-O-Rama shares this article from Ehow with good DIY tips for replacing those blades.
1) First, look up your vehicle’s make and model in the reference books where wiper blades are sold. This reference will provide you with the correct model of blade to purchase.
2) Open the package containing the new windshield wiper blade. The package should include up to three or four different styles of blade attachment’the small plastic piece that secures the new blade to the wiper arm.
3) Examine the existing attachment (where the arm and the blade meet), then find a new one in your package that matches it.
4) Grasp the windshield wiper arm and pull up, away from the car. The blade and arm should now be sticking out perpendicular to the window.
5) Remove the windshield wiper blade from the arm at the attachment. There will usually be a small tab you can depress with a screwdriver that will allow you to pull the blade from the arm. Some attachments have a small metal bump and two tabs on either side; you depress the tabs and pull hard to remove the blade. Some just snap onto the blade.
6) Remove the old attachment from the wiper blade and replace it with the new one.
7) Install the blade onto the windshield wiper arm. Test by turning on the wipers. If the blades slip, turn off the wipers and seat the attachments more firmly.

Zalman Silber 

Formerly known as SkyTour, this popular attraction from Zalman Silber is located at the very top of Australia’s famed Sydney Tower. It was designed to be the largest simulated ride in the Southern Hemisphere, replicating his success with New York's Skyride. In a similar fashion, the Oztrek is an IMAX-like cinematic experience, but with kentic motion seating that is synchronized with the action onscreen. It's the only one of its kind in all Australia, and it's from Zalman Silber, a serial entrepreneur and serial success when it comes to multimedia entertainment for the whole family.
The OzTrek takes guests on an amazing virtual adventure across Australia’s rich history and geography, bringing to life the wide diversity of Australian landscapes using a unique combination of 3D holographic technology, animated models, and scenic art. Zalman Silber has created an multi-sensory extravaganza that will have audiences swooping down like a sea eagle above Sydney’s icons, gliding effortlessly over the Bridge, Opera House, and the warm sands of Bondi beach. It's such a life-like experience that guests can almost feel the exhilaration of white water rafting as they journey along a tropical Queensland river!
Take a mark on the field at a game of Aussie Rules Football; muster wild buffalos by helicopter in the Outback; get right into the jaws of a huge saltwater crocodile - all in immersive surround sound, with a three-storey high screen that wraps around for a hundred and eighty degrees of you-are-there excitement! It's another Zalman Silber production, and another sure winner among the multitude of attractions that Sydney has to offer.

It's all at the Sydney Tower, an iconic landmark that symbolizes the modern vision of the city and its residents. Opened to the public decades ago, it remains a futuristic-looking building among Sydney's other modern high-rise towers, a vantage point from which visitors can still see the first rays of dawn over the city as well as the day's last light. Three double-deck lifts provide lightining-fast access to the structure's Golden Turret which houses two levels of restaurants and telecommunication transmissions, three levels of power plants, a coffee lounge, the observation deck - and of course, the Oztrek from Zalman Silber!
