This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the seventh generation (2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 & possibly also the revised 2015) Dodge Charger sedan in changing the windshield window wiper blades.

Owners of other Chrysler, Dodge and RAM vehicles such as the Town & Country, 300, 200, Avenger, Challenger, Journey, Dart, Durango, Grand Caravan, and Ram C/V Tradesman minivan may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The 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 24-CA & Bosch 21-CA, Rain-X 5079280-1 & Rain-X 5079278-1, Trico 24-1 & Trico 21-1, Anco C-24-UB & Anco C-21-UB, and Valeo 600-24 & Valeo 600-21.

The only tool needed to replace the wiper blades is a small flathead screwdriver.

Push Blade Down Off Hook
Lift the wiper arm off the windshield until it stays in the raised position by itself.

Then pry open the black plastic locking tab at the center of the old wiper blade with a small flathead screwdriver.

Swing the locking tab up to release it.

Push the old wiper blade down to disengage the mounting bracket from the metal hook at the end of the wiper arm.

Towel - Protect Window
Rotate the old wiper blade until it is almost perpendicular with the metal wiper arm.

Pass the hook at the end of the wiper arm through the opening in the center of the old wiper blade.

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

I'd recommend buyins the Bosch 24A and Bosch 21A wiper blades since they have the best reviews on Amazon.

Lower Arm To Window
Swing the black plastic locking tab down to close it.

Gently snap in the locking tab to secure it in place.

Lower the wiper arm to the windshield.

For the best wiper performance, I'd recommend thoroughly cleaning the windshield and applying a window treatment product such as Rain-X or Zaino Glass Polish.
