Auto Repair & Diagnostics : How to Replace Windshield Wiper Blades


Good afternoon, my name is Tom Brintzenhofe
a certified master tech from Redding, PA.
Today we are going to talk about how to change
your vehicle’s wiper blades. Now every vehicle’s
wiper blade is a little different; some are
pushed on, some are clipped on. This particular
type right here is got what they call a loop
type; with a little retainer on the bottom
which has to be depressed in order to get
it off. Now one thing you want to keep in
mind when you have it up here in the air like
this. You want to tilt it forward and push
on it with your hand a little bit, grab that
tab on the bottom and slide off. Tilt it away
from you, it’s really not to hard. Just don’t
let go of this because if it comes down it’s
going to smack your windshield and then you’ll
be replacing not only your wiper blade but
the window itself. Now this one here, it’s
the same style as that one, just slide back
on pull it right back; just like so, slide
it up in there, tilt it back, push it forward,
sometimes it takes a little bit of force and
wiggling to get it up in there until you hear
a little bit of a click. Once it pops up in
there you’re good to go. If you’re not sure
what size to use any local part store you
stop in, talk to them, ask some questions
they’ll be more than willing to help you out
as to whether their 16, 18, 19, they go all
the way up to 27 inches long; so you might
want to check with somebody if you’re not
sure or you can take a tape measure and you
want to measure it from one point here all
the way to the other point. And the only stress
I can make for you is please hold on to this
arm, because if it comes down smacks your
windshield you just bought yourself a windshield.
