REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

  1. Lift the arm and blade clear of the glass.
  2.  
  3. Press in the locking tab on the back of the wiper arm.
  4.  
  5. Remove the blade assembly from the arm. A little side to side motion can help to loosen the blade assembly.
  6.  
  7. When reinstalling, make sure the new blade seats on the arm with a distinct click. If it doesn't click, it isn't on properly and will fly off later.

  1. Move the blade slightly to the side and remove it from the arm.
  2.  
  3. When reinstalling, pay attention! It is possible to get the blade on the arm backwards, resulting in strange positioning against the glass. The blade should seat on the arm with a distinct click and should then be able to be folded down parallel to the arm so that it sits flush against the glass over its entire length.
