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, such as the Pacific Northwest, then you'll understand the importance of wiper blades that work well. It is easy to overlook the condition if you live in a dry climate, such as Southern California. 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. I personally use Bosch premium blades on all my cars. They are more expensive, but they last longer and do a nicer job of keeping the water off the windshield.

Pull the plastic cover (green arrow) off each front wiper blade.
Figure 1

Pull the plastic cover (green arrow) off each front wiper blade. They pop off pretty easily.

Pull each wiper arm up so that you can pull the blade assembly (green arrow) off the pivot rod (yellow arrow).
Figure 2

Pull each wiper arm up so that you can pull the blade assembly (green arrow) off the pivot rod (yellow arrow). Place a small dab of grease on the pivot rod prior to fitting the new wiper blade. Once in place, lower the wiper blade back against the windshield and press the plastic covers back on.

Replacing the rear wiper blade is equally as easy.
Figure 3

Replacing the rear wiper blade is equally as easy. Lift the wiper arm (green arrow) up and off the rear window. Now pull the blade insert out of the arm. It may take a bit of effort, but it should pop right out.

Note the pivot piece (green arrow) built into the blade insert.
Figure 4

Note the pivot piece (green arrow) built into the blade insert. It's designed so that the blade insert can only fit on to the wiper arm one way.

Shown here is the underside of the wiper arm.
Figure 5

Shown here is the underside of the wiper arm. Pop the pivot piece on the blade insert until it fully seats in the clip (green arrow).

Walt E Comments: The wiper replacement procedure worked great. The rear wiper takes some effort to snap it out and snap the new one in.
