How to Change 06 Honda Civic Wiper Blades

Updated February 21, 2017

The windshield wipers on your 06 Honda Civic help clear your windshield when driving in inclement weather or if your windshield becomes dirty. In time the wiper blades will wear down. You may start to notice a change in wiper performance, or hear squeaking when the blades run over the glass. Check the wiper blades for breaks or cracking. If they are worn down then replace them with new wiper blades.

Purchase replacement wiper blades from your local auto repair shop. You will need to provide the attendant with information on the make and model of your Honda Civic.

Lift the driver side windshield wiper up from the windshield until it locks in place, and then lift the passenger side wiper. The driver side windshield wiper blocks the passenger side wiper if you reverse the order. The wipers will stay in place if you fully extend them.

Press the release button on the windshield wiper and pull the blade assembly outward to remove it from the wiper arm.

Remove the cover on the end of the blade assembly by lifting up the locking tab and pulling it off of the end of the assembly. Set the cover to the side.

Grip the rubber blade and slide it off of the assembly, toward the end that had the cover. Discard the old blade.

Line the grooves of the new blade with the slots on the blade assembly and slide the new blade in place.

Place the cover back over the end of the blade assembly.

Press the wiper blade assembly back onto the wiper arm. You will hear a click when it is properly placed.

Repeat Steps 3 through 8 with the other windshield wiper.

Lower the passenger side wiper back onto the windshield and then the driver side wiper.
