Two Tabs - Old Blade

This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the second generation (2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and maybe also the revised 2017) Ford Fusion sedan in changing the windshield window wiper blades.

Owners of other Ford or Lincoln vehicles such as the Focus, Fiesta, C-Max, Mustang, Escape, Transit Connect, Edge, Flex, Explorer, Expedition, Taurus, F-150, EcoSport, MKC, MKZ, MKS, MKX, MKT and the Navigator may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The OEM blades are the following sizes in inches: Driver Side 27" and Passenger Side 26".

If you want OEM Ford wiper blades, the part numbers are as follows: Driver Side - Motorcraft # WW-2700 and Passenger Side - Motorcraft # WW-2601.


A few other aftermarket wiper blades that should be compatible include the following: Rain-X 5079282-1 (28" left & right sides), Bosch 28OE (28" both sides), Michelin 8528 (28" both sides), Anco C-26-OE (26" both sides) and Trico 28-15B (28" both sides) and Valeo TL226 Gen2 (26" both sides).

Warning - I've read that some 28" wiper blades may be too long and eventually cause scratches on the roof where they extend past the top of the windshield.

Lift Blade Off Metal Hook
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 squeeze together the two black plastic tabs. (They slightly resemble insect wings.)

Pull the tabs out of the metal bracket.

Continue rotating the old blade away from the wiper arm until the metal hook at the end of the wiper arm can be removed from the slot in the mounting bracket on the blade.

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

I'd recommend buying the OEM Ford Motorcraft # WW-2700 and Motorcraft # WW-2601 wiper blades.

Line up the slot on the new wiper blade with the metal hook at the end of the wiper arm.

Insert the hook in to the slot and rotate the new blade until it is almost parallel to the wiper arm.

Lower Wiper Arm
Squeeze together the two black plastic tabs and re-insert them in to the mount on the wiper arm.

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

Gently lower the wiper arm back down to the windshield.

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