How to replace a windshield wiper blade - Replacement installation tutorial

Published Monday August 8th, 2016 7:58pm by AH Parts Dismantlers

Being made of rubber, it's no mystery that the wiper blades on our cars tend to easily crack due to elements such as the sun and rain. Driving with worn wiper blades can be a hazard when it comes to our safety, which is why it's recommended to replace wiper blades about once every 6 months. Being such a common maintenance item, we'll use this article to go over some basic windshield wiper blade replacement instructions. The estimated installation time for new blades is around 3 minutes, making this an easy do-it-yourself job!

Tools Needed

  1. Two hands.

Really? Yes!

Tutorial

Our model car here is an Acura RSX, 2002-2006 body. Your vehicle may slightly differ, but should be similar enough to follow along.

  1. Raise the wiper arm by bending upwards at the base, positioning it off and away from the vehicle body.
  2. Tilt the blade backwards until it becomes perpendicular with the wiper arm.
  3. Locate the securing tab underneath the wiper blade, where the blade and arm meet.
  4. Pull the tab outwards, and then push the wiper blade down, towards your vehicle.
  5. Now pull the wiper blade side ways, releasing it from the arm it was attached to.
  6. Pull the wiper blade straight off the arm.
  7. Finally, do everything in reverse order to install your replacement wiper blades!

Pretty easy job! Next time you need to replace these, don't forget where you learned to do so!
