This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the 4th generation (2018, 2019, 2020 and probably also the 2021, 2022 and 2023 model years) Ford Expedition SUV in changing the front windshield window wiper blades.

Owners of other Ford or Lincoln vehicles such as the Explorer, F-150, Escape, EcoSport, Transit, F-350, F-250, Edge, Flex, Ranger, Fiesta, Focus, Fusion, Mustang, Bronco, Super Duty, Navigator, Continental, MKZ, MKX, MKC, MKT, Aviator, Corsair and Nautilus may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The OEM (original equipment manufacturer) blade sizes in inches are as follows: Driver Side 22" and Passenger Side 22".

The genuine OEM part number is Motorcraft WW2247.

A few compatible replacement wiper blades with their part numbers include the following: Bosch ICON 22A, Aero 22, Rain-X 5079279-2, PIAA 95055 and Trico 25-220.

The only tool needed to remove and 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 lock tab at the center of the wiper blade just above the metal wiper arm.

Wiper Release Tab
Use the plastic pry bar tool or a flat head screwdriver to gently lift up the bottom edge of the locking tab.

Swing open the lock tab towards the top of the wiper blade.

Rotate the old wiper blade away from the wiper arm at a slight angle until you can see the small black plastic release tab.

Towel - Protect Glass
Push the release tab in towards the metal wiper arm.

While holding in the release tab, carefully slide the old wiper blade down and out of the metal hook at the end of the wiper arm.

Rotate the old wiper blade until it is perpendicular (at a 90 degree angle) to the wiper arm.

Pull the old wiper blade straight off the end of the wiper arm.

Place a towel on the windshield to protect the glass from being scratched, chipped or shattered 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 wiper blades since they have excellent reviews on Amazon.

Rotate Blade Parallel

Line up the new wiper blade with the end of the wiper arm.

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

Make sure the plastic locking tab is in the fully extended position.

Pass the end of the metal wiper arm through the opening in the center of the new wiper blade.

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

Lower Blade To Window
Pull up on the new wiper blade to secure it in to the metal hook at the end of the wiper arm.

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

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

Gently lower the new blade down to the windshield.

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

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