How to Replace and Install Windshield Wipers on a Car

Some tips I recommend when replacing and installing wipers on your car.

  1. Make sure the wipers are the correct size and fit your car before you take them out of the box.
  2. Don’t leave the wiper arm straight up for too long.  I’ve seen when mechanic’s have left the wiper arm up and it can snap back and crack a windshield.  Wiper arms are spring loaded and have quite a lot of force.
  3. Sometimes the little clips to get off the wipers might require a screwdriver if you haven’t replaced them in awhile.
