Rotate Away Old Blade

This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the revised first generation (2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 & 2011) GM Chevrolet Aveo in changing the front windshield window wiper blades.

Owners of other General Motors vehicles such as the Buick Verano, Regal, LaCrosse, Cascada, Encore, Enclave, Envision, GMC Canyon, Sierra 1500, Terrain, Yukon, Denali, Savana, Spark, Sonic, Cruze, Malibu, Impala, Volt, Camaro, Corvette, SS, Trax, Equinox, Traverse, Tahoe, Suburban, Colorado, Silverado and Express may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The OEM blade sizes in inches are as follows: Driver Side 22" and Passenger Side 18".

A few compatible replacement wiper blades with their part numbers are as follows: Bosch 22A & Bosch 18B, Rain-X 5079279-1 & Rain-X 5079275-1, Anco 31-22 & Anco 31-18, Michelin 8522 & Michelin 8518, Valeo 900221B & Valeo 900181B and Trico 25-220 & Trico 25-180.

Slide Old Wiper Off Hook
The first step is to lift the wiper arm off the windshield until it remains in the raised position by itself.

Rotate the old wiper blade away from the metal wiper arm.

Press in the black plastic release tab towards the metal wiper arm to release the blade's mounting bracket.

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

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

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

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

I always buy the Bosch 22A and Bosch 18B wiper blades since they have great reviews on Amazon.

Lower Blade To Window
Line up the new wiper blade with the metal wiper arm. The rubber blade should be facing away from the windshield.

Slide the plastic mounting bracket at the center of the new wiper blade in to the metal hook at the end of the wiper arm until it clicks securely in to place.

Double check that the new wiper blade is secure.

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 Bros Glass Polish.
