When the wipers no longer clean well, the blades are probably worn or cracked. Replace them.

CAUTION

To prevent damage to the wiper arms and other components, do not try to sweep the wiper arm by hand.

NOTE

When raising both windshield wiper arms, raise the driver's side wiper arm first. When lowering the wiper arms, slowly lower the wiper arm from the passenger's side first while supporting it with your hand. Forcefully lowering the wiper arms could damage the wiper arm and blade, and may scratch or crack the windshield.

Replace the wiper blades using the following procedure.

  2. Open the clip and slide the blade assembly in the direction of the arrow.

    CAUTION

    Do not bend or discard the stiffeners. You need to use them again.

    If the metal stiffeners are switched, the blade's wiping efficiency could be reduced.

    So do not use the driver's side metal stiffeners on the passenger's side, or vice versa.

    Be sure to reinstall the metal stiffeners in the new blade rubber so that the curve is the same as it was in the old blade rubber.

  6. Carefully insert the new blade rubber. Then install the blade assembly in the reverse order of removal.
