“Replacing wiper blades

The three most common wiper arm styles are the side post, J hook and bayonet. These common style blades rely on part of the wiper to lock into place, making for simple removal and installation. However, the two-screw bayonet-style wiper blade will need a specific wiper blade, and will require the use of a screwdriver for removal and installation.

Wiper-blade manufacturers include universal hardware with new blades, allowing for different style wiper blade arms to attach and function properly. However, some vehicles will need specific features for the wiper to work.

Have patience and take your time. Or ask the auto parts counter person at your store of choice to replace them for you — most retail outlets will perform this task free of charge if you purchase your replacement wiper blades from them.
While you’re thinking visibility, it’s a good time to check your windshield washer fluid. Adequate fluid will allow for easy removal of road grime, bugs and even ice — if you live in an area that sees extreme cold, we recommend upgrading to a winter washer fluid versus the cheap blue stuff.
