This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the third generation (2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017) Mitsubishi Outlander Sport in changing the windshield window wiper blades.

Owners of other Mitsubishi vehicles such as the Lancer, Outlander, Mirage, ASX, RVR, Galant, I-MIEV, Montero, Eclipse, 3000GT, Endeavor, Raider, Diamante, Attrage, Carisma, Colt, Grandis, Magna, Pajero and the Space Star 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 21".

A few compatible replacement wiper blades with their part numbers are as follows: Bosch 24A & Bosch 21A, Rain-X RX30224 & Rain-X RX30221, Anco 31-24 & Anco 31-21, Michelin 8024 & Michelin 8021, Valeo 900241B & Valeo 900211B, Trico 25-240 & Trico 25-210, PIAA 95060 & PIAA 95053 and ACDelco 8-4424 & ACDelco 8-4421.

The only tool needed to remove and replace the wiper blades is a small flathead screwdriver or a plastic pry bar tool.

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

Use a small flathead screwdriver or a plastic pry bar tool to gently lift open the bottom edge of the rectangular shaped lock tab near the center of the wiper blade.

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

Line up the new wiper blade with the wiper arm. The rubber blade should be facing up and away from the windshield.
