No tools are needed to change the windshield wiper blades.
Push In Release Tab
Slide Mount Off Hook
|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 the small black plastic release tab at the center of the old wiper blade.
Slide the old wiper blade down to remove the plastic mounting bracket from 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 through the opening in the old wiper blade.
Pass Hook Through Opening
Towel - Protect Glass
Insert Hook Through New Blade
|Place a towel down
on the windshield to protect the glass from being cracked, shattered,
scratched or chipped just in case the wiper arm smacks down on the window
while you are replacing the blade.
Line up the new wiper blade with the metal wiper arm.
Pass the hook through the opening in the new wiper blade.
Rotate New Blade
Slide Bracket In To Hook
Lower Arm To Windshield
|Rotate the new
wiper blade until it is almost parallel with the wiper arm.
Slide the plastic mounting bracket in to the metal hook at the end of the wiper arm until it clicks securely in to place.
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.
