2015 Sedona Wipers
Raise Arm Off Windshield
Rotate Away Old Blade

This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the third generation (2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and maybe also the updated 2019 and 2020 model years) Kia Sedona minivan in changing the windshield window wiper blades.

Owners of other Kia or Hyundai models such as the Grand Carnival, Sorento, Sportage, Niro, Soul, K900, Stinger, Cadenza, Optima, Rio, Forte, Genesis, Sonata, Ioniq, Santa Fe, Tucson, Elantra and Accent may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The OEM windshield wiper blade sizes in inches are as follows: Driver Side 26" and Passenger Side 18".

A few compatible replacement wiper blades with their part numbers are as follows: Bosch 26A & Bosch 18B, Aero 26"+ 18", Rain-X 5079281-2 & Rain-X 5079275-2, Anco 31-26 & Anco 31-18, Trico 16-260 & Trico 16-180, ACDelco 8-4426 & ACDelco 8-4418, Valeo 900261B & Valeo 9001810B and PIAA 95065 & PIAA 95045.

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

Push In Release Tab
Pull Wiper Down Out of Hook
Detach Blade From Arm
The first step is to lift the wiper arm off the windshield window until it remains in the raised position by itself.

Then rotate the old wiper blade away from the wiper arm at a slight angle.

Locate the small black plastic release tab near the middle of the wiper blade.

Gently push the release tab in towards the metal wiper arm.

While holding the release tab in, pull the plastic mounting bracket in the center of the wiper blade down and out of the hook at the end of the wiper arm.

Separate the old wiper blade from the metal wiper arm.

Towel - Protect Glass
Metal Hook Wiper Arm
Line Up New Wiper Blade


Place a towel on the windshield to protect the window from being scratched, cracked, chipped or shattered just in case the metal wiper arm smacks down on to the glass while you are replacing the wiper blade.

I recommend buying the Bosch 26A and Bosch 18B wiper blades since they have excellent reviews on Amazon.

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

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

Insert Hook Through Blade
Slide Up Into Hook
Lower Blade To Window
Pass the metal hook through the opening in the middle of the new wiper blade.

Rotate the wiper blade until it is parallel with the wiper arm.

Slide the mounting bracket in the center of the wiper blade up and into the hook at the end of the wiper arm.

The mounting bracket should "click" securely into place.

Double check that the new wiper blade is secure and can't be pulled out of the metal hook.

Gently lower the wiper blade back down to the windshield.

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

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