Wiper Blade Replacement

Windshield wiper blades should be inspected for wear and cracking.

See Maintenance Schedule for more information.

Replacement blades come in different types and are removed in different ways. For proper type and length, see Maintenance Replacement Parts.

To replace the windshield wiper blade:

1. Pull the windshield wiper assembly away from the windshield.

2. Lift up on the latch in the middle

2. Lift up on the latch in the middle of the wiper blade where the wiper arm attaches.

3. With the latch open, pull the wiper blade down toward the windshield far enough to release it from the J-hooked end of the wiper arm.

4. Remove the wiper blade.

Allowing the wiper blade arm to touch the windshield when no wiper blade is installed could damage the windshield. Any damage that occurs would not be covered by the vehicle warranty. Do not allow the wiper blade to touch the windshield.

5. Reverse Steps 1 through 3 for wiper blade replacement.
