Worn wiper blades can be dangerous, yet many car owners put off replacing their blades because they think the job is too difficult. We’re here to tell you that it’s not. Wiper blade replacement on most vehicles is easy and rewarding. Just think, you’ll actually be able to see afterwards!

A windshield wiper blade can last for a while, but if you see streaks or hear scrapes when using your wipers, you’ll know it’s time to replace them.

Part 1 of 1: Replace the wiper blade

Step 1: Lift the wiper arm. Lift the wiper arm up and away from the windshield.

Step 2: Push down on the release tab. Push the tab inward towards the wiper arm.

Step 3: Remove the wiper blade. While still depressing the tab, slide the blade from under the mounting hook and remove it from the wiper arm.

  • Note: Be careful not to let the wiper arm fall down onto the windshield. The windshield might break.

Step 4: Position the blade on the arm. Position the blade on the arm and line it up with the hook.

Step 5: Install the wiper blade. Push the wiper blade into the wiper arm hook. You’ll know the wiper is secure when you hear it click into place.

Step 6: Check the installation. Tug on the wiper in both directions to make sure it is secure.

Step 7: Put the wiper arm down. Carefully set the wiper arm back down onto the windshield.

Windshield wiper blade replacement is easy after you’ve done it a few times, but in the beginning it can be tedious. If this seems like a task you’d prefer to leave to a professional, YourMechanic offers expert windshield wiper blade replacement.

Chevrolet Impala - Windshield Wiper Blade - Tucson, Arizona
Ramon is very professional and personable. He took the time to explain how the window regulator works and why mine needed to be replaced. Found and repaired a couple of other issues I had with my car as well. Thanks to Ramon my first experience with "Your Mechanic" was a good one and I will definitely use your business again.
