Wiper Blade Refills Guide

As a rule of thumb, most experts recommend replacing your wiper blades once or twice a year – but don’t forget to inspect for damage periodically. Your wiper blade size can be found in your owner’s manual. Once you purchase the right set, follow these steps:

  • Remove the old wiper by pushing on the tab that connects the wiper blade to the wiper arm.
  • Attach the new blade to the arm and push until you hear a clicking sound. Lower the arm to the windshield slowly, and repeat on the other side.
  • Test your work by turning on your windshield wipers, so you can make sure that everything is solid.
