This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the 6th generation (2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 & 2014) Ford Taurus sedan in changing the front windshield window wiper blades.

Owners of other Ford, Lincoln and Mercury vehicles with similar windshield wipers such as the Fiesta, Fusion, Focus, C-Max, Mustang, Escape, Transit Connect, Explorer, Edge, Expedition, Flex, MKS, MKZ, MKT, MKX, Navigator, Milan, Grand Marquis, Mariner and Mountaineer may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

Replacement wiper blade sizes in inches are as follows: Driver Side 26" and Passenger Side 20".

A few compatible wiper blades with their part numbers are as follows: Bosch 26OE & Bosch 20OE, Michelin 8526 & Michelin 8520, Rain-X 5079281-1 & Rain-X 5079277-1, Trico 25-260 & Trico 25-200 and Anco C-26-OE & ANCO C-20-OE.

No tools are needed to change the wiper blades.

Pull Blade Off Metal Hook
The first step is to lift the wiper arm off the windshield until it stays in the up position by itself.

Place a towel on the windshield to protect it from cracking or chipping just in case the wiper arm smacks down on the glass.

Rotate the old wiper blade at a slight angle away from the metal wiper arm.

Squeeze together the two "wing" shaped tabs on the wiper blade's mounting bracket and swing the blade away from the arm.

Lift the wiper blade off the metal hook at the end of the wiper arm.

Insert Metal Hook In Slot
I always buy the Bosch 26OE and Bosch 20OE wiper blades since they have excellent reviews on Amazon.

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

Lower the slot on the new wiper blade over the metal hook at the end of the wiper arm.

Lower Wiper Arm To Glass
Swing the wiper blade towards the metal wiper arm.

Squeeze together the two tabs and insert them in to the wiper arm to secure the new blade in place.

Lower the wiper arm back down to the windshield.

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