Replacing a wiper blade

Updated 7/23/2018

The wiper blades sweep water away from the windscreen and rear window. Together with the washer fluid they clean the windows and ensure visibility for driving. Windscreen and rear window wiper blades can be replaced.

Fold up the wiper arm when it is in service position. Press the button located on the wiper blade mounting and pull straight out parallel with the wiper arm.

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

Check that the blade is firmly installed.

Fold out the wiper arm.

Grip the inner section of the blade (by the arrow).

Turn anticlockwise to use the blade's end position against the wiper arm as a lever to detach the blade more easily.

Press the new wiper blade into place. You should hear a click. Check that it is firmly installed.

Lower the wiper arm.

Important

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