Step 1: Purchase New Wipers
Before you can replace your windshield wipers, you need to purchase new ones. You can buy them online or at your local auto parts store. Make sure to buy the correct size for your vehicle. You can find this information in your owner’s manual or by asking a sales associate.
Step 2: Remove Old Wipers
To remove the old wipers, lift the wiper arm away from the windshield. Locate the small tab on the underside of the wiper blade where it connects to the arm. Press down on the tab and slide the blade off the arm.
Step 3: Attach New Wipers
Take your new wiper and slide it onto the arm in the same position as the old one. You should hear a click when it locks into place. Repeat this process for the other wiper.
Step 4: Test the New Wipers
Test your new wipers by turning them on and making sure they are working properly. If they are not clearing the windshield or making strange noises, you may need to adjust them or double-check that they are securely attached.
