Default Wiper blades installation

I have seen this question in most of the time "How do you install wiper blades?"

Well, most cars you are able to lift the wiper arm, and fold it back. its spring loaded. take the blade hold it and there is a plastic latch that you squeeze on the underside of the wiper. like a wire harness connector if you will.
squeeze it and pull the arm towards the base of the arm. the arm is U shaped and the plastic clip slides in place to hold it. Hint: if your wipers tuck below the hood and are out of site when they are off, you may want to turn them on and catch them halfway up the windshield, then turn the key off to stop them mid stroke. Turn the wiper blade perpendicular to the arm.

Install the new one, slide it in place and lock it by pushing on it. Make sure it is secure.

Some cars you have to turn on the wipers and turn off the car so they sit in the middle of the windshield straight up and down. w cars especially.


With older vehicles they have a pin the wiper sits on, and you have to lift up on the wiper blades on each side to disengage the locks. and pull away from the arm. the clip style is usually easier. but with new blades they have a hole in the center where the pin slides through then you take the clip and latch it over the pin.

Test your new blades. They should glide across the windshield smoothly with no skipping or jumping.

You just saved yourself as much as $10-$20 for installation
