This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the updated (2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014) Dodge Avenger sedan in changing the windshield window wiper blades.

Owners of other Chrysler Group vehicles such as the Dart, Challenger, Durango, Charger, Grand Caravan, 200, 300, RAM C/V Tradesman, Jeep Patriot, Compass and Cherokee may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

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

A few compatible replacement wiper blades with their part numbers are as follows: Bosch 24A & Bosch 22B, Rain-X 5079280-1 & Rain-X 5079279-1, Michelin 8024 & Michelin 8022, Bosch 4824 & Bosch 4822, Valeo 900241B & Valeo 900221B and Anco 31-24 & Anco 31-22.

The only tool needed to replace the blades is a flathead screwdriver. You may also use a car key, coin, nail file, a butter knife or any similar item.

Rotate Blade Away
The first step is to raise the wiper arm off the windshield until it stays in the up position by itself.

Then gently pry out the black plastic locking tab on the outside of the old wiper blade's mounting bracket with a flathead screwdriver.

Swing the locking tab out until it is perpendicular with the wiper blade.

Slide Old Blade Down
Rotate the wiper blade away from the metal wiper arm at a slight angle.

Press the small black plastic release tab on the wiper blade mounting bracket down towards the metal wiper arm.

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

Towel To Protect Glass
Rotate the old wiper blade until it is perpendicular with the metal arm and pull it off.

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

I'd recommend buying the Bosch 24A and Bosch 22B wiper blades since they have excellent reviews on Amazon.

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

Lower Arm To Windshield
Swing the lock tab down and snap it back in to place.

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

Lower the wiper arm 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 Zaino Bros Glass Polish or Rain-X.
