2020 Wrangler Wipers
Raise Wiper Arm
Rotate Old Blade Away

This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the "JL" fourth generation (2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022 & 2023) Jeep Wrangler SUV in changing the front windshield window wiper blades.

Owners of other Jeep, Dodge and RAM vehicles such as the Grand Cherokee, Compass, Renegade, Gladiator, Cherokee, Grand Wagoneer, Wagoneer, Charger, Challenger, Durango, RAM 1500, Promaster, 2500 and 3500 may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The OEM (original equipment manufacturer) wiper blades sizes in inches are as follows: Driver Side 16" and Passenger Side 16".

A few compatible replacement 16" aftermarket wiper blades with their part numbers include the following: Bosch 4816, Rain-X 5079274-2, Trico Gold 18-1616 and Bosch ICON 16A.

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

The first step is to gently 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.

Push In Release Tab
Slide Mount Down
Bracket Out of Hook
Push in the black plastic release tab and hold it.

Carefully slide the plastic mounting bracket down and out of the metal hook at the end of the wiper arm.

Detach the old wiper blade from the wiper arm.

Metal Wiper Arm Hook
Towel - Protect Glass
New Wiper Blade
Place a towel on the windshield to protect the glass from being chipped, shattered, cracked or scratched just in case the metal wiper arm smacks down on to the window while you are replacing the wiper blade.

I've always preferred using the Bosch ICON series, so I personally recommend buying the Bosch ICON 16A wiper blades.

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

Line Up Bracket & Hook
Slide Bracket Up
"Click" Secured / Locked
Slide the plastic mounting bracket on the new wiper blade up and into the metal hook at the end of the wiper arm.

You should hear or feel the mounting bracket "click" securely into place.

New Wiper Blade Installed
Lower Blade To Window
Wiper Blade Change Done
Double check that the new wiper blade is securely attached to the wiper arm before moving on to the other side.

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

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