    Most likely at the pivot where it attaches, can you tell if there is something moving under it?

How to install a windshield wiper blade


You will need new wiper blades before you can perform a wiper blade replacement project. Get your "owner's car manual" as it will tell you everything you need to know about the wipers' size and type. The manual may also give you list of brands you can choose from for you wiper blades.

  1. Buy the correct wiper blades, make sure you have bought the entire blade and not just the rubber insert. Read the instructions properly before you begin. It will show you how to perform the wiper blade replacement.
  2. Take the wiper arms off the windshield. You will have to remove the old wiper blades very carefully so you don't hurt yourself. Wear kitchen gloves if you don't want to get your hands dirty or cut yourself.
  3. Push on the tab of the old wiper blades and pull them out. You can also use a small screwdriver to lift the tab.
  4. Take the new wiper blades and insert it in the arms very carefully. Don't push too hard, but do it gently. It will easily slide itself in. You will hear a "click" sound when the entire blade has gone inside.
  5. Wiggle or shake the new wiper blades to see they are secured properly and won't fly away when you turn them on. If all looks good, lower the wiper arms back on the windshield. And you're done!

Rear wiper blade disconnected...how do we fix?


Have to remove the wiper arm & see if the splines are
damaged & if the motor works as it should
There are no easy vehicle fixes
You have to understand how something works & then
diagnose why it doesn't & make the repair
If you get lucky she only ruined the wiper arm &
not the motor or it's drive spline.

2005 tahoe wiper replacement


My tahoe has a plastic piece just to the left of the metal attaching arm. It is easiest to see on the driver side wiper. There is just enough room to slip a flat blade screw driver into and then pop upwards. After this clip is popped, slowly move the wiper blade to the right as you pull that clip further upward. The blade can now be removed. Of course if you have a different type blade this will not work.

Need to replace driver side wiper do not know how to get it off


I believe the blade is the same as my F-250, according to the manual. Pull the wiper away from the windshield, then push on either end of the blade, follow blade to pivot point at center, where blade pivots back and forth on wiper arm (wiper arm will not be moving as you do this). You need to push towards the windshield at this pivot point to push in on the wiper arm and out on the blade assembly to pop the round end of the wiper arm out of the hole in the blade assembly. Look at the new blade to see where this attaches. The new one should snap on to the arm when u squeeze the wiper arm to the blade. I prefer Exact Fit brand, as they seem to fit well. If u purchase at autozone, or advanced auto parts, they will install them for free.

My windshield wiper blades wont work how can I fix this


Try checking the fuse for the wiper blades first if the fuse is good then check the relay for the wiper blades, if the fuse and the relay are both good it is possible that the wiper motor for the blades is bad.
