Re: Am finding it difficult to get old wiper blades off...
You can spray it down with a break free solution. it ay free it up but if your replacing the blade, then there is nothing to worry about. Just get some cutters and break off the blade. the only part your worried about is the metal U shaped bracket that holds in the blade.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

First, pull on the wiper arm until it raises and locks into the service position. The wiper arm will stand by itself once you raise it past a certain point.
Then find the clip on the underside of the wiper arm (rotate the blade slightly to get to it.
Press the clip in while simultaneously pulling the old wiper blade off the wiper arm. You can then discard the old blade.
Align the new wiper blade with the wiper arm track. Slide it along the track until you hear it click.
Repeat this process with the other wiper blade to complete the replacement of wiper blades on your Highlander.
Return the wiper arms to their normal position against the windshield. Done!
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.
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.
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.
Push on the tab of the old wiper blades and pull them out. You can also use a small screwdriver to lift the tab.
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.
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!
Hello, there are different types of mounts for the wipers. Most of my Ford and Mercury products have a U looped end on the wiper arm. There is a button on the wiper and you push the plastic button and slide the wiperblade off the U bracket.
What is sometimes tricky is the wiper arm goes through and underneath the new blade. When you slide the new blade into the looped end it will lock.
Autozone will install for free and Walmart is kind of neat. Walmart will install free and you pay the same price for the blade as off the shelf.
There are other kinds of mounts. I have seen POST mounts which are simply a post on the end of the arm. But there are different size posts. The plastic clip is removed to these and the blade simply lifts off. Then reattach the clip.
Worthy of mention. Put wipers on and turn off ignition when the wiper is conveniently stopped at a place where you can easily reach them. Some wiper arms can be lifted and they will stay lifted off the glass for service.
gently raise up the wiper arms and look directly in the middle section of the arm where the blades are seated. You will see a push in clip that has to be pushed inward to relase the wiper blade. While pushing the clip inward hold in in p;ace and wiggle it loose. Then you can move the wiper blade somewhat to remove it. It isn't the asiest thing to change and it is very hard to explain also. Showing you you be alot easier for me but going by these instructions it should come off for you. Installing is not that difficult. Taking them off is the hard part I know
You need to replace only the wiper blades which are attached to the wiper arm with a clip, simply press the clip and slide the old wiper blade out of the arm, looks like a "u" bend so you need to pull it down opposite the bend, then put in the new wiper blade in reverse way only you don't need to press the clip. Once you hear the click and the blade does not move in the arm, job is done.
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.
There are two ways. You can replace the rubber cartridge by simply removing any retaining clips from the end of the blade and sliding the old cartridge out, then sliding the new cartridge in and reclipping. Replacing the entire blade isn't that difficult either. Tilt the wiper back from the window so you can see where the blade pivots on a pin with clips holding the pin. Gently pry the wiper out from the clips on either side of the pin(you only need to pry on one) while pushing the blade in toward the wiper cover. It should pop out of the clips with a small amount of effort. You'll then have to weasel it out but it comes out pretty easily. Take off any adaptor that comes attached to the new 14" wiper and install.
hi from uk re wiper blade you only have to swivel blade enough to access the press clip that holds the swivel mount of the blade then while pressing clip pull wiper blade down out of the wiper arm U type hook replacement is in reverse make sure you note the old blade fits so you fit new one same way ?
usually they are a clip type, and you have to push some thing down, then slide it out, its actually usually pretty difficult to do, its to complicated to just describe, so you might have some one from like your local napa or schuucks help you out, but if all else fail, just break the old ones off without breaking the wiper arm, which isn't a difficult task do to the wiper being plastic, and the arm being metal, but since you have new ones it won't hurt to break the old ones.
