When replacing windshield wiper blades, it's important to initially determine if the blades are pushed on or clipped on. Replace windshield wiper blades, and be sure to get the proper size blades, with help from an auto mechanic in this free video on car repair and diagnostics.
Good afternoon, my name is Tom Brintzenhofe a certified master tech from Redding, PA. Today we are going to talk about how to change your vehicle's wiper blades. Now every vehicle's wiper blade is a little different; some are pushed on, some are clipped on. This particular type right here is got what they call a loop type; with a little retainer on the bottom which has to be depressed in order to get it off. Now one thing you want to keep in mind when you have it up here in the air like this. You want to tilt it forward and push on it with your hand a little bit, grab that tab on the bottom and slide off. Tilt it away from you, it's really not to hard. Just don't let go of this because if it comes down it's going to smack your windshield and then you'll be replacing not only your wiper blade but the window itself. Now this one here, it's the same style as that one, just slide back on pull it right back; just like so, slide it up in there, tilt it back, push it forward, sometimes it takes a little bit of force and wiggling to get it up in there until you hear a little bit of a click. Once it pops up in there you're good to go. If you're not sure what size to use any local part store you stop in, talk to them, ask some questions they'll be more than willing to help you out as to whether their 16, 18, 19, they go all the way up to 27 inches long; so you might want to check with somebody if you're not sure or you can take a tape measure and you want to measure it from one point here all the way to the other point. And the only stress I can make for you is please hold on to this arm, because if it comes down smacks your windshield you just bought yourself a windshield.
