Raise Wiper Arm Off Glass

This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the sixth generation (2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, & 2016) Mitsubishi Mirage in changing the front windshield window wiper blades.

Owners of other Mitsubishi vehicles such as the Lancer, Outlander, Galant, Montero, Eclipse, 3000GT, Endeavor, Raider, Diamante, Attrage, Carisma, Colt, Grandis, Magna, Pajero, Space Star and the revised 2017 Mirage may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The OEM wiper blade sizes in inches are as follows: Driver Side 24" and Passenger Side 16".

A few compatible wiper blades with their part numbers are as follows: Rain-X RX30224 & Rain-X 5079274-1, Anco 31-24 & Anco 31-16, Valeo 900241B & Valeo 900161B, Michelin 8024 & Michelin 8016 and Trico 25-240 & Trico 25-160.

No tools are needed to replace the windshield wiper blades.

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 wiper arm at a slight angle.

Locate the black plastic release tab.

Towel - Protect Glass

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

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

The rubber blade should be pointing up and away from the windshield.

Slide Bracket Up In To Hook
Pass the metal hook at the end of the wiper arm through the opening in the center of the new wiper blade.

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

Pull the new wiper blade up until the mounting bracket clicks securely in to the hook at the end of the wiper arm.

Lower Blade To Window
Double check that the new wiper blade is securely attached to the wiper arm.

Gently lower the wiper arm down on to the windshield.

For the best wiper performance, I recommend thoroughly cleaning off the windshield and applying a glass treatment product that will repel water such as Rain-X.
