  • time 5 to 25 minutes

1 The windshield wiper and blade assemblies should be inspected periodically for damage, loose components and cracked or worn blade elements
2 Road film can build up on the wiper blades and affect their efficiency, so they should be washed regularly with a mild detergent solution
3 Gently pry off the trim cap and check the tightness of the wiper arm retaining nut
4 If the wiper blade elements (sometimes called inserts) are cracked, worn or warped, they should be replaced with new ones
5 Lift the release lever with a flat-bladed screwdriver, then slide the blade assembly off the pin on the end of the wiper arm
6 With the blade removed from the vehicle, you can remove the rubber element from the blade
7 Squeeze the end of the wiper element to free it from the bridge claw, then slide the element out
8 Compare the new element with the old for length, design, etc
9 Slide the new element into the claw into place, notched end last and secure the claw into the notches
10 Reinstall the blade assembly on the arm, wet the windshield and test for correct operation
