How do i remove the windshield wiper blade


The 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan has the most common hook-end wiper arms. See related links below for installation videos. Also, purchase the replacement blades first and there will be additional instructions/illustrations on the replacement packages. Locate and press the tab or button where the wiper blade is inserted into the hook of the wiper arm and pull wiper blade out of hook. You may have to rotate and flex the blade to make enough clearance for the hook to pass through.

I need to have 'step-by-step' instructions for replacing the driver side windshield wiper arm on my 2000 Ford Explorer. Can you help me with this?


  • Turn your wipers off, using the stalk on the left side of your steering column. Turn your ignition off and remove the key.

  • 2

    Pull the wiper blade up to lift it to the service position. Pull the front part of the blade down to position it at an angle.

  • 3

    Pull back the lock pin on the center part of the wiper blade (where it connects to the wiper arm). This unlocks the blade from the wiper arm.

  • 4

    Grasp the blade on each side and pull it down (away from the extended wiper arm) to release it from the "U" clip.

  • 5

    Repeat the process for the other wiper blade, if desired. Removing the driver's side and passenger's side wiper blade is the same.

  • 6

    Install the new wiper blade. Open the lock pin on the new blade, and then insert it into the wiper arm "U" clip. Close the lock pin and lower the wiper blade to its normal position.

    How to remove and replace the wiper blades on an 06 Murano


    Me again. After looking at the blade for 15 minutes or so I did the following. Remove the wiper blade from vehicle (makes it easier to work on). There is a little tab under the blade near the end of the wiper blade arm. Press it and slide/pull the wiper blade toward you. Now when you look at the wiper it seems like its a sealed unit. Check the ends and you will see the rubber is flexibe enough to allow you to slid the "wiper" out ot the blade. You can get the replacement refill (the wiper) or a replacement wiper blade (the whole unit) from the Nissan dealer. Take the refill and slide into the blade assembly. Take your time. You might have to straighten the blade a little so that the refile lines up with the holding tabs in the blade. Looks impossible, but once you've done it you'll be surprised how simple it was to do......****
