The blades will slide either direction once you remove the locking pin, and make sure you disconnect the washer jet line from the assembly first,then raise the washer arms,remove the lock pin or fasciners.This will allow you to pull the blade free ..keep me posted
To remove the protector, lift the wiper blade and pull the crimped end as shown in Illustration 2.
Let the tube squirt washer fluid directly on the windscreen, if it does a poor job then you may have to make a flat nozzle. Your local auto house supply should have some small plastic Ts for coupling hoses, find one that fits, cut it long enough to be fastened to the wiper blade with black tape or epoxy, heat the end and flatten with a pin to make a small passage. Use a cheap pair of gloves and use your hand to flatten the softened plastic. The only McGyver trick I know for this!
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......****
Wiper blades are held on by a spring loaded clip. You could have one of 2 different blades. Look where the blade attaches to the arm and you will find either a slim piece of metal that will push down on the blade or a small slot. Push the small bar down and pull the blade off at the same time. With the slotted type you will have to use a small screwdriver or something else that will fit in and push down while you pull the blade off the arm. Don't be surprised if they pull off with some difficulty, these things don't seem to be built with precision in mind. Hope this helps.
My advice is to forget changing the rubber. Just buy a complete wiper blade minus the arm. This way although you will spend a little more but avoid the hassle and get an entirely new blade. If you buy a quality blade you will only need to replace it once a year or every other year if the car is kept in a garage. I have been using the Rain X Latitude wiper blade and have found it to be a fantastic blade. After 1 year of use it is as good as the day it was installed. Most blades especially rubber blades start to deteriorate after 6 months. Whatever you buy make sure it is made of silicone and not rubber.
I have not looked at the wipers on one yet but if they use a standard wiper, dont change the entire blade assembly. Change just the insert portion of the wiper blade if that is an option. Just lift the arm and then flatten back the blade assembly and a gap should form at one end so that you can slide the blade out from the the flex portion of the assembly. Then just stick the new inserts in the way you pulled the old ones out. At one time that was all that people used to replace. Now we think that we have to replace the flex portion as well but normally you dont. I dont have a 2005 Jaguar but it might also be a special blade you have to purchase. I have seen that before as well. Hope this helps...
