Raise Wiper Arm Off Window

This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the second generation (2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 & 2017) Chrysler 300, 300C or 300S sedan in changing the front windshield window wiper blades.

Owners of other Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and RAM vehicles such as the Town & Country, 200, Pacifica, Avenger, Charger, Journey, Challenger, Dart, Durango, Magnum, Grand Caravan, Grand Cherokee, Renegade, Wrangler, Compass, Liberty, Patriot, ProMaster, 1500 and C/V Tradesman minivan may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

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

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


A few compatible wiper blades with their part numbers include the following: Bosch 24A & Bosch 21A, Rain-X RX30224 & Rain-X RX30221, Valeo 900241B & Valeo 900211B, Anco 31-24 & Anco 31-21.

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

Locate the rectangular shaped black plastic lock tab near the center of the old wiper blade.

Use a small flathead screwdriver or a plastic automotive panel pry bar tool to gently pry open the bottom edge of the lock tab.

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

Rotate Perpendicular
Rotate the old wiper blade until it is almost perpendicular to the metal wiper arm.

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

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

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

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

The rubber wiper blade should be pointing out away from the windshield.

Slide Bracket In Hook
Pass the metal hook at the end of the wiper arm through the opening in the center of the new wiper blade.

Rotate the new wiper blade until it is parallel with the wiper arm.

Slide the new wiper blade up to secure the plastic mounting bracket in to the metal hook.

You should feel or hear the mounting bracket "click" securely in to place.

Lower Arm To Window
Flip down the black plastic locking tab and pop it in place to secure the new wiper blade.

Gently lower the wiper arm down to the windshield.

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