This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the third generation (2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 & 2011) Honda CR-V in changing the front windshield window wiper blades.

Owners of other Honda or Acura vehicles such as the Pilot, Insight, CR-Z, Accord, Civic, Fit, Crosstour, Odyssey, Ridgeline, TSX, ILX, TLX, TL, RLX, RDX and MDX may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

Replacement blades with their sizes in inches are as follows: Driver Side 26" and Passenger Side 17" (or 16").

A few compatible replacement wiper blades with their part numbers include the following: Bosch 26-CA & Bosch 17-CA, Rain-X 5079281-1 & Rain-X 5079283-1, Valeo 600-26 & 900-16-1B, and Anco C-26-UB & C-16-UB.

No tools are needed to replace the wiper blades.

Pull Blade Off Wiper 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 old wiper blade away from the metal wiper arm at a slight angle.

Press the small black plastic release tab at the bottom of the mounting bracket in towards the metal wiper arm.

Slide the mounting bracket down out of the metal hook at the end of the wiper arm.

Pull the old blade off the wiper arm.

Insert Arm Through Blade
Place a towel on the windshield to prevent the glass from being cracked, chipped or shattered just in case the wiper arm falls down while you are replacing the blade.

I recommend buying the Bosch 26-CA and Bosch 17-CA wiper blades since they have great reviews on Amazon.

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

Pass the metal hook through the open section of the new wiper blade above the mounting bracket.

Lower Arm To Windshield
Slide the mounting bracket up in to the metal hook until it clicks securely in to place.

Gently tug down on the new wiper blade to make sure that it is locked in place.

Lower the wiper arm back down to the windshield.

To achieve the best wiper performance, I recommend that you thoroughly clean off the windshield and apply a glass treatment product such as Rain-X or Zaino Glass Polish.
