How Do I Change My Wiper Blades?

Are your wipers becoming loose or need changing?


• First, turn on your ignition. Your engine doesn’t need to be running.

• Next turn on your wipers. When they’re upright, turn them off.

• Now turn off your ignition.

• Pull up the wiper stalk and wipe the blades with a damp cloth.

• To check the blades, run your fingers along the window facing edge.

• If the blades feel rough or hard, they need to be replaced.

• Are your wipers juddering, squeaking, or not clearing your windscreen properly? If so, then they need replacing as soon as possible. Otherwise they will become useless when the rain starts to pour.

• To remove the old blade, hold it by the connector, press the locking button and pull the old wiper out.

• Push the new blade into the stalk. The locking button ‘clicks’ when it’s in the right position

• Hold the stalk and end of the blade firmly. Twist and snap the blade out. It’s normal for this to take some effort, it’s a bit fiddly!
