2017 Edge Wiper Blades
Raise To Service Position
Swing Up Passenger Side
This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the second generation 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and probably also the updated 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022 model years of the Ford Edge SUV in changing the wiper blades on the front windshield window.

Owners of other Ford and Lincoln vehicles such as the Escape, Expedition, EcoSport, Flex, Explorer, Fiesta, Focus, Fusion, Mustang, Taurus, Ranger, Transit Connect, F-150, Endura, C-Max, Kuga, Mondeo, MKZ, Navigator, Aviator, Nautilus and Continental may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The original OEM wiper blade sizes in inches are as follows: Driver Side 28" and Passenger Side 28".

A few compatible sets of new wiper blades with their part numbers include the following: Bosch 4844, Rain-X 5079282-2, Trico 35-280, Michelin 14528 and Anco C-28-OE.

No tools are needed to remove and replace the wiper blades.

To move the two wiper arms to the "service position", just manually swing them up to the top of the windshield.


Lift Arm Off Windshield
Rotate Away Old Blade
Two Release Tabs
Then lift the wiper arms off the window until they remain in the raised position by themselves.

I'd recommend placing a thick towel on the windshield to protect the glass from being cracked, shattered, chipped or scratched just in case the wiper arm smacks down on to the window while you are replacing the blades.

You should also only replace on blade at a time to further reduce the risk of damaging the window.

Slightly rotate the old wiper blade away from the wiper arm so that you have better access to the two release tabs.

Squeeze Tabs Together
Rotate Away Bottom Edge
Lift Old Blade Off Hook
The two triangular shaped release tabs somewhat resemble insect wings.

Pinch together the two tabs and pull the plastic mount out of the metal bracket on the wiper arm.

Swing the bottom of the old wiper blade up.

Lift the wiper blade off the small metal hook at the top of the wiper arm.

Towel - Protect Glass
Release Tabs - Old Blade
Line Up Hook & Blade
I recommend buying the Bosch 4844 28" wiper blades since they have excellent reviews on Amazon.

Line up the new wiper blade with the wiper arm.

Lower Blade Over Hook
Swing Down Towards Arm
Click Bracket Into Mount
Lower the opening at the top part of the wiper blade's mount over the small metal hook on the wiper arm.

Swing the wiper blade down until it is almost parallel with the wiper arm.

Squeeze together the two plastic tabs and push the mount into the metal bracket.

You should feel or hear the wiper blade's mount "click" securely into place.

New Blade Attached
New Blade Installed
Lower Arms To Cowl
Double check that the new wiper blade is securely attached to the wiper arm.

Carefully lower the wiper arm back down to the windshield.

Manually move the wiper arms from the service position by rotating them down to the black plastic cowl (near the hood).

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

Be sure to write down the blade change in your vehicle's service records.
