Raise Wiper Arm Off Window

This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the third generation (2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 & also 2016 in Canada) Dodge Durango SUV in changing the front windshield window wiper blades.

Owners of other Chrysler, Dodge and RAM vehicles such as the Town & Country, 300, 200, Avenger, Charger, Journey, Dart, Challenger, Grand Caravan, and Ram C/V Tradesman minivan may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The OEM wiper blade sizes in inches are as follows: Driver Side 22" and Passenger Side 21".

A few compatible replacement wiper blades with their part numbers include the following: Rain-X RX30222 & Rain-X RX30221, Bosch 22A & Bosch 21A, Anco 31-22 & Anco 31-21, Michelin 8522 & Michelin 8521, Trico 22-1 & Trico 21-1 and ACDelco 8-4422 & ACDelco 8-4421.

The only tool needed to replace the wiper blades is a flathead screwdriver used to pry open the locking tabs.

Towel - Protect Glass
Rotate the old wiper blade until it is almost perpendicular with the metal wiper arm.

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

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

Line Up New Wiper Blade

Pass Hook Through Opening
I recommend buying the Bosch 22A and Bosch 21A wiper blades since they have excellent reviews on Amazon.

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

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

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

Lower Wiper Arm To Window
Flip the locking tab closed and snap it in to place to secure the new wiper blade.

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

Gently 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 Rain-X or Zaino Glass Polish.
