Grasp the center of the wiper blade and lift it from the window to the stop position.


When the wiper arm is halfway folded out, it will stop in a locking position that helps prevent the arm from falling back onto the rear window. The wiper arm must be pulled past the locking position stop in order to change the wiper blade.

Grip the lower part of the blade and pull to the right until the blade loosens from the arm.

Press the new wiper blade until it clicks into place. Check to make sure the blade is securely in place.
Fold the wiper arm back toward the window.


Check the blades regularly. Neglected maintenance shortens the life of the blades.
