Have your wipers been so bad that you couldn’t see outside? Today we are going to talk about replacing Flexi Blade Windscreen Wipers. Wipers are essential to staying safe out on the road in adverse conditions, and if yours are not up to the task, it is dangerous to both you and your passengers.

Symptoms that your windshield wipers are bad include streaking on the glass, screeching sounds as they operate, or bouncing blades on the windshield. Wipers tend to wear out over time, so keep an eye out for these signs and get them replaced when these symptoms appear.

Part 1 of 1: Replacing the windshield wipers

Step 1: Fit your blades to ensure they are the correct size. To fit your wiper blades, measure them or look up the year, make, and model of your vehicle to find the perfect fit.

  • Note: Most vehicles have 2 different sizes, for example, 20 inches, and 22 inches.

Step 2: Lift your windshield wipers away from the windshield. Ensure that they stay attached to the windshield.

Step 3: Squeeze each side. Push up or pull down depending on your vehicle type.

Step 4: Pull up tab. There is a tab which, when pulled up, allows you to install the new blade.

Step 5: Insert wiper arm by putting the arm in the empty space. The wiper should be facing the windshield when being inserted.

Step 6: Install new blade. Pull up until you hear a click, which is the wiper arm connecting to the blade.

Before putting the blade on the windshield, take off the protective cover to ensure you don’t scratch your windshield. Put the wiper back on the windshield and operate the windshield wipers to verify they are working properly.

Windshield wipers help keep you and your passengers safe, increasing visibility during inclement weather. If you do not feel comfortable replacing your windshield wiper blades yourself, have one of YourMechanic’s certified technicians come to your home or work and perform the replacement for you.
