2014 Compass Wipers
Raise Wiper Arm
This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the refreshed, "revised" or "facelifted" first generation 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and the early 2017 model year Jeep Compass in changing the front windshield window wiper blades. (The 2nd generation arrived in late 2017.)

Owners of other Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep or RAM vehicles such as the Avenger, 200, 300, Town & Country, Challenger, Charger, Dart, Durango, Journey, Patriot, Wrangler, Grand Cherokee, 1500, 2500, 3500, C/V Tradesman and ProMaster may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The wiper blade sizes in inches are as follows: Driver Side 22" and Passenger Side 20".

A few compatible replacement wiper blades with their part numbers include the following: Bosch 22-CA & Bosch 20B, Rain-X 5079279-1 & Rain-X 5079277-1, Valeo 900221B & Valeo 900201B, Anco 31-22 & Anco 31-20, Michelin 8522 & Michelin 8520 and Trico 25-220 & Trico 25-200.

No tools are needed to change the wiper blades.

Old Wiper Blade
Rotate Blade Away From Arm
Lift the wiper arm off the windshield until it remains in the raised position by itself.

Rotate the old wiper blade away from the metal wiper arm at a slight angle.

Black Plastic Release Tab
Press In Release Tab
Press in and hold the small black plastic release tab.
Slide Bracket Off Hook
Pass Hook Through Opening
Slide the plastic bracket in the center of the old wiper blade down and out of the metal hook at the end of the wiper arm.

Continue rotating the old wiper blade until it is parallel with the metal wiper arm.

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


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

I always buy the Bosch 22-CA and Bosch 20B wiper blades since they have great reviews on Amazon.

Pass Hook Through Hole
Pull Bracket In To Hook
Insert the metal hook at 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 almost parallel with the wiper arm.

Pull the plastic mounting bracket in the center of the new wiper blade up and in to the metal hook.

New Blade Secured In Hook
Lower Blade To Windshield
Double check that the new wiper blade is securely installed in to the metal hook at the end of the wiper arm.

Gently lower the wiper arm down to the windshield.

For the best wiper performance, I'd recommend thoroughly cleaning the windshield and applying a window treatment product such as Rain-X.
