This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the sixth generation (2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021) GM Chevrolet Camaro in changing the front windshield window wiper blades.

The development and release of the 7th generation Camaro has been delayed, so the current sixth generation will probably continue into the 2022 and 2023 model years.

Owners of other General Motors vehicles from Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac such as the Malibu, Impala, Bolt, Corvette, Trailblazer, Trax, Equinox, Blazer, Traverse, Tahoe, Suburban, Colorado, Silverado, Express, Encore, Envision, Enclave, Regal, Sierra, Terrain, Acadia, Yukon, Canyon, Savana, XT4, XT5, XT6, Escalade, CT4, CT5, CTS and CT6 may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The OEM (original equipment manufacturer) wiper blade sizes in inches are Driver Side 22" and Passenger Side 20".

The OEM part numbers for this 2020 Camaro are as follows: Driver Side - GM 23360288 and Passenger Side - GM 23360287.

A few compatible replacement aftermarket wiper blades with their part numbers include the following: Bosch 22A & Bosch 20B, Rain-X 5079279-2 & Rain-X 5079277-2, Michelin 8522 & Michelin 8520 and ACDelco 8-4422 & ACDelco 8-4420.

The only tool needed to replace the wiper blades is a small flat head 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.

Locate the rectangular shaped black plastic locking tab at the center of the old wiper blade.

Slide Down Old Blade
Insert the blade of the flat head screwdriver or a plastic pry bar tool into the bottom edge of the black plastic lock tab.

Gently pry out the bottom of the plastic lock tab.

Swing the plastic lock tab up and away from the metal wiper arm.

Carefully slide the old wiper blade down until the plastic mounting bracket moves out of the metal hook at the end of the wiper arm.

Towel - Protect Glass

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

I recommend buying the Bosch ICON 22A and Bosch ICON 20B windshield wiper blades since they have excellent reviews on Amazon and I've always excellent experiences with Bosch brand wiper blades on our family's vehicles.

Line up the opening in the center of the new wiper blade with the metal hook at the end of the wiper arm.

The rubber blade should be pointing out away from the windshield.

Pass the metal hook at the end of the wiper arm through the opening in the middle of the new wiper blade.

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

Firmly pull the plastic mounting bracket in the center of the new wiper blade up and into the metal hook at the end of the wiper arm.

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

Lower Wiper To Window
Swing down the plastic lock tab and push on it until you feel the lock tab "click" securely into place.

Double check that the new wiper blade is securely attached to the wiper arm.

Gently lower the wiper blade and arm back down against the windshield.

For the best wiper performance, thoroughly clean off the windshield and apply a window treatment product that will help repel water from the glass such as Rain-X.

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