New Bosch Wiper Blades

This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the first generation (2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008) Honda Pilot SUV in changing the windshield window wiper blades.

Owners of other Honda or Acura vehicles such as the Accord, Civic, Crosstour, CR-V, CR-Z, Fit, Insight, Odyssey, Pilot, Ridgeline, ILX, TSX, TLX, TL, RLX, RDX, NSX and MDX may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The OEM wiper blade sizes in inches are as follows: Driver Side 24" and Passenger Side 21".

A few compatible replacement wiper blades with their part numbers are as follows: Bosch 24A & Bosch 21A, Rain-X 5079280-2 & Rain-X 5079278-2, Michelin 8024 & Michelin 8021, Aero AERO-J2421, Anco 31-24 & Anco 31-21, Valeo 900241B & Valeo 9002110B, PIAA 95060 & PIAA 95053 and Trico 25-240 & Trico 25-210.

No tools are needed to remove the old wiper blades and install the new ones.

Pull Old Blade Down
The first step is to lift the wiper arm off the windshield until it remains in the raised position by itself.

Rotate the old wiper blade away from the wiper arm at a slight angle.

Gently push the small black plastic release tab in towards the metal wiper arm.

Hold in the release tab while pulling the old wiper blade down and out of the metal hook at the end of the wiper arm.

Line Up New Wiper Blade



 

Rotate the old wiper blade away from the wiper arm until it can be separated from the metal hook.

Place a towel on the windshield to protect the window from being cracked, scratched, chipped or shattered just in case the wiper arm smacks down on to the glass while you are replacing the wiper blade.

I recommend buying the Bosch 24A and Bosch 21A wiper blades since they have excellent reviews on Amazon.

Line up the new wiper blade with the metal wiper arm.

Lower Wiper Arms
Slide the mounting bracket in the center of the new wiper blade up and in to the metal hook at the end of the wiper arm.

Double check that the new wiper blade is securely attached to the wiper arm.

Gently lower the wiper arm down to the windshield.

For the best wiper performance, I recommend thoroughly cleaning off the windshield and applying a window treatment product that will help repel water from the glass such as Rain-X.
