Don't do it! replace the whole arm. just a few bucks more and a much better repair. if your replacement blade comes off the arm may scratch your windshield.

How do I replace wiper blades


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!

I need to replace wiper blades on a highlander. I had to get a new arm and now I need to take off the blades on the old and I cannot figure it out.


I just changed the wiper blades on my 2008 Highlander base. It is too simple. Pull the arm up so it is perpendicular to the car. In the middle of the wiper arm facing outward is a clip, simply pull the clip up (no tools needed) and take the arm off. Too simple, very different that all the other approaches for wiper blades.

Remove and replace wiper blade assebly 89 chevy silverado


there is a keeper on the inside of the arm. its easier to get to if you remove the whole arm. lift the wiper arm and near the pivot point there is a little flat bar that sticks out along the arm itself. its about a quarter inch long. pull that out alittle and slide the arm off the peg. makes it easier for me. if you cannot get the wiper off still, destroy it. your replacing it anyway and the arm is pretty sturdy.

Replace rear wiper 2007 RAV-4?????


Slide a small screwdriver under the tab in the middle of the blade and the arm, while pressing the tab in, pull blade away from the arm, this may need some extra wiggle. Remember you dont want it to fall off when driving..

Replacing rear wiper blade


I purchased a Trico "Exact Fit" #12-A rear wiper blade at Advance Auto Parts for my 2006 RAV4. The directions are very clear. It took about 3 minutes. The key is to open the plastic cover at the bottom joint of the blade by spreading the both sides with your index fingers and pulling straight out. This opens the cover and allows you to bring the blade to a 90 degree angle.

1993 jeep cherokee country series--replace windshield wipers


Are trying to remove the blade or the arms?

The arms are released by holding the wiper blade fully extended away from the winshield and wiggle the arms off.

The blades are removed by a little tab where the blade hooks to the arm,using a small screwdriver push down on tab,and slide blade off arm but do not let arm slap windshield as it could crack it,I have seen people pull and the blades suddenly come off and the arm slaps down,yor can put a towel or cloth down where the arm sits against the windshield to prevent the possibilty of the arm slapping down.

Rear wiper blade


If you still have your '08 Cruiser, I just changed mine (I'm also a Mom)...You have to pop off the plastic cap on the base of the wiper where it attaches to the window, then with a small wrench, take off the hex nut. Work the wiper arm off the spindle, then replace like the front wipers...push old wiper hook up, pull thru, and replace blades per instructions in the blade package...Pat

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.

Serpentine Belt Toyota Rav4


Hi maroon,
  • Get a 14mm or 9/16" socket and a long handled ratchet or breaker bar.
  • Get the belt around all the pulleys except the A/C compressor or Alternator. Double check your routing.
  • The tensioner pulley is on a spring loaded arm. Get your socket on the center nut of this pulley.
  • Slowly pull the ratchet toward the center of the engine. The pulley will pivot on the arm allowing you to get the belt on the final pulley.
  • Slowly release the tension.
  • You're done
