Raise Wiper Arm

This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the tenth generation (2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018) GM Chevy Impala in changing the windshield window wiper blades.

Owners of other General Motors vehicles such as the Malibu, Cruze, Camaro, Sonic, Spark, Volt, Corvette, Trax, Equinox, Traverse, Tahoe, Suburban, SS Sedan, Bolt, Colorado, Silverado, Buick Verano, Regal, LaCrosse, Cascada, Encore, Envision, Enclave, Canyon, Sierra 1500, Terrain, Acadia, Yukon, Savana, ATS, CTS, XTS, CT6, XT5, SRX and Escalade 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 19".

A few compatible replacement wiper blades with their part numbers are as follows: Bosch 24A & Bosch 19A, Rain-X RX30224 & Rain-X RX30219, Aero 24" & 19", Anco 31-24 & Anco 31-19, Michelin 8024 & Michelin 8019, Valeo 900241B & Valeo 900191B and Trico 24-1 & Trico 19-1.

The only tool needed to replace the wiper blades is a small flathead screwdriver or a plastic pry bar tool.

Swing Open Lock Tab
The first step is to lift the wiper arm off the windshield until it remains in the raised position by itself.

Use a small flathead screwdriver or a plastic pry bar tool to gently open the rectangular shaped black plastic lock tab near the center of the wiper blade.

Pry at the bottom edge of the lock tab where it meets the curved part of the metal hook on the wiper arm.

Towel - Protect Glass
Pass the metal hook through the opening in the center of the old wiper blade.

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

Hold the new wiper blade at a perpendicular angle to the metal wiper arm with the rubber blade facing away from the car.

Line up the opening in the center of the new wiper blade with the metal hook at the end of the wiper arm.

Pass the hook through the opening in the new wiper blade.

Lower Wiper To Windshield
Swing closed the locking tab and pop in to place.

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

Gently lower the wiper blade down to the windshield.

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