2005 Chevy Equinox Wiper blade hits edge of window

2005 Chevy Equinox: What is the length of the front windowshield wiper blades? I just bought two 23 inch blades and put them on my dad's car. However, the passenger side wiper blade hits the edge of the widow and will not move through its wiper motion properly. Are the blades different sizes (driver and passenger) or am Iputting them on improperly

The 23 should work on the drivers side but you will need a 19" on the passenger side.
Hope this helps and let me know.

Removing and replacing wiper blades


Typically, wiper arms terminate in a "J" shape at the end of the arm where it connects to the wiper blade.
Purchase new wiper blades the proper length.
Hinge the wiper arm up away from the windshield so it's sticking straight up from the car.
Rotate the wiper blade so that it's perpendicular with the arm.
Now press the wiper blade assembly so that it disengages from the hooked "J" bend in the arm.
Re-attach the new blades using the same procedure but in reverse.

2011 equinox rear wiper replacement


I just replaced mine. Lift the rear wiper up as far as it will go. which is not very far. Place your fingers on each end of the wiper and pull down. The blade is held in place by a clip. Gentle pressure will downward toward the window will cause it to disconnect. An extra pair of hands to hold the plastic cover up helps. Note the orientation of the blade when you disconnect it. The replacement blade may have a clip on it which may need to be removed. Place the replacement blade in the same orientation as the one that was removed and clip back in place.

The 1990 Chevrolet Suburban has the most common hook-end wiper arms. 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 replace the windshield wiper blade


The 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan takes 28" wiper blades on both sides front and a 18" rear wiper. See related links below for more information. Since there are over 22 different wiper arm attachments, do not buy wipers just by length only - be sure to lookup exact wiper blade part numbers by vehicle make, model and year for the brand wiper you decide to purchase. This ensures correct length AND correct attachment.

My rear wiper gets snagged on the fixture of the cyclopse brake light. My 2005 Dodge Magnum was rear-ended awhile ago (and repaired), and then shortly threafter I had the Valvoline-Quicky-Oil-Change Team...


First try measuring the length of the wiper blade and calling your dealer or auto parts store to verify that the length is truly correct. Technicians might have grabbed the wrong length. If that's ok, go back to the people who repaired the accident damage and ask them if the arm was correctly installed, sometimes one notch on the shaft of the the blade arm will make the difference in wiper blade travel, if both of these possibilities fail, then maybe the shaft might be bent, or loose. Hope this helps-Jim

Front windshield wiper blades


The 2006 Toyota RAV4 takes a 24" drivers side, 17" passenger side and has a special 17" rear blade. Don't just go by lengths though - when buying windshield wiper blades be sure to always use the application guide book at the store or now-a-days you can Google 'lookup wiper size'.

You want to look this up because correct wiper fit is more than correct length, it's also proper attachement. Not all attachments fit all arms. Using the application guide or looking up wiper size online will avoid headaches of buying the right lengths with the wrong attachements.

The replacement wiper blades will come with step-by-step, illustrated instructions and once you have the instructions and the wiper blades/arms in your hands in front of you, it will all make better sense and will an easy maintenance task. Very simple and takes 5-15 minutes usually not requiring any tools. If in your budget, upgrade to the newer-style frameless "beam blades" which perform better than conventional framed wipers. I use Trico NeoForm Beam Blades which are fantastic. Hope this helps!

PS: Your question is about the front blades but if you address the rear blade too, this vehicle has what they call a "Roc Lock 2" rear arm. You can go to your dealer or I know Trico makes an "Exact Fit Rear Integral Blade 12-A". There may be others available too. I've got the Trico on my Jeep and it fits/works great.
