One often overlooked wear item on your car is the wiper blades. This is one of those things that can easily ruin your day if the weather suddenly turns bad. Replacement of the blades is very easy and should take no longer than 15 minutes.

If you live in a wetter climate, then you'll understand the importance of wiper blades that work well. If running the wipers just streaks the windshield, it's time for new blades.

Lower quality blades tend to dry out or crack quicker than quality ones. Quality blades are more expensive, but they last longer and do a nicer job of keeping the water off the windshield. Most wiper blades for the C-class are sold in sets, and it is a very good idea to replace both of them even if just one is starting to go.

Both wiper blades on the Mercedes C-class are attached to the wiper arms by a single post (red arrows).

Both wiper blades on the Mercedes C-class are attached to the wiper arms by a single post (red arrows). No tools are needed to change them. The procedures for both blades are the same.

Begin by lifting the arm up while the wipers are in the off position.

Begin by lifting the arm up while the wipers are in the off position. If you have any worries at all about doing this job you should place a large thick towel on the windshield. If you let the wiper arm drop back onto the windshield while there is no blade on it you can crack the windshield and turn an inexpensive DIY job into an expensive one quickly.

Rotate the wiper blade 90 degrees from the arm.

You can now just slide the blade off by moving it away from the arm (red arrow).

There is a bracket at the end of the wiper arm (red arrow) that will hold the blade in place when installed.
