Replacing windscreen wiper blades

The wiper blades sweep water away from the windscreen. Together with washer fluid, they aim to clean the windscreen and ensure visibility while driving. The wiper blades can be replaced.

Slide in the new wiper blade until a "click" is heard.

Check that the blade is firmly installed.
Fold the wiper arm back towards the windscreen.


If the wiper arms in service position have been folded up from the windscreen, they must be folded back down onto the windscreen before the activation of wiping, washing or the rain sensor, as well as before driving. This is to avoid scraping the paint on the bonnet.

The wiper blades are different lengths
