This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the first generation (2011, 2012, 2013 & 2014) Chrysler 200 sedan in changing the windshield window wiper blades.

Owners of other Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep or RAM vehicles such as the Avenger, 300, Town & Country, Challenger, Charger, Dart, Durango, Journey, Grand Caravan, Patriot, Wrangler, Grand Cherokee, Compass, 1500, 2500, 3500, C/V Tradesman and ProMaster may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

Replacement wiper blades are the following sizes in inches: Driver Side 24" and Passenger Side 22".

A few replacement blades with their part numbers are as follows: Bosch 24-CA & Bosch 22-CA, Rain-X # 5079280-1 and Rain-X 5079279-1, Anco 31-24 & 31-22, Trico 24-1 & 22-1, and Valeo 600-24 & 600-22.

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

Rotate Wiper Blade At Angle
The first step is to lift the wiper arm off the windshield until it stays in the raised position by itself.

Then pry open the black plastic locking tab near the center of the center of the mounting bracket with a small flathead screwdriver.

Swing open the lock tab and rotate the old wiper blade away from the arm at a slight angle.

Pull Bracket Off Metal Hook
Once you rotate the wiper blade away from the arm, you'll see a small black plastic tab.

Press in the tab with the small flathead screwdriver to release the wiper blade from the metal arm.

Pull the old wiper blade down off the metal hook at the end of the wiper arm.

Towel Protect Glass
Pass the metal hook through the opening in the center of the old wiper blade to fully remove it from the arm.

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

I'd recommend buying the Bosch 24-CA and Bosch 22-CA wiper blades since they have great reviews on Amazon.

Lower Wiper Arm To Window
Swing the lock tab down and snap it back in to place to secure the new wiper blade.

Gently lower the wiper arm down 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.
