Re: how do i change wiper blades on a 2005 jaguar s-type?
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...

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.
buy a complete wiper arm from ebay or amazon because the original blade is not standard the center it thinker than a normal 10 inch blade ..the good thing is when you change the rear wiper arm you can then use normal 11 inch blades when you need to change again the cost of a new arm and blade is around £15 [2016 ] keep the original black cover nut because i found the replacement did not fit over the nut
try changing the wiper relay first and check out the fuses if all is good then the motor itself may have seized or the worm drive may be worn or broken check the toothed spline where the wiper blade attaches the splines may be smooth or broken which will stop the blades moving back and forth
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.
The 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer has the most common hook-end wiper arms. 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.
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.
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.
