This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the 1st generation (2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 & 2014) Dodge Journey 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, Challenger, Charger, Dart, Durango, Grand Caravan, RAM 1500 and Ram C/V Tradesman may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

Replacement wiper blade sizes, in inches, for the '09-'14 Journey are as follows: Driver Side 24" and Passenger Side 19". (The rear window wiper blade is 12 inches.)

New wiper blades are available from various manufacturers such as Bosch, Rain-X, Trico, Anco and Valeo.

No tools are needed to replace the wiper blades.

Lift Wiper Blade Off Arm
The first step is to raise the wiper arm off the windshield until it stays in the up position by itself.

Then rotate the wiper blade away from the wiper arm at a slight angle.

Push in the black plastic release tab at the center of the wiper blade towards the wiper arm to release the mounting bracket.

Slide the wiper blade mounting bracket down and off the hook at the end of the wiper arm.

Then pull the old wiper blade up and off the wiper arm.

Pull Bracket Up In To Hook
Place a towel on the windshield to protect the glass from shattering or cracking just in case the wiper arm smacks down on it while you are changing the wiper blade.

Lower the new wiper blade down on the wiper arm. Pass the hook at the end of the wiper arm though the hole in the center of the blade.

Then slide the mounting bracket at the center of the wiper blade in to the hook at the end of the wiper arm.

Continue pulling up on the new wiper blade until the mounting bracket snaps securely in to the hook at the end of the wiper arm.

Rotate the new wiper blade parallel to the wiper arm and lower it down to the windshield.

For best wiper blade performance, you should thoroughly clean off the windshield and apply a glass treatment product such as Rain-X.
