The instructions are on the back of the package, it is not hard, just a squeeze at the right place.
if you buy them at advance or autozone the sales guys will come out and put them on for you. your strategy should be to find where you go by one of those shops most often and stop when you see no cars in their parking lot so they have some time to give you without angering some other customers.

SOURCE: Replacing wiper blade on 2007 Vanden Plas

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!

How to changed wiper blade for 2007 Acura RL


There are only 3 types of blade, when you buy blades, you will also receive a installation manual, compare it with your wipe, see which type it is, and follow the instruction.
If you don't know how, go to autozone or O'Reilly, ask staff to help, they USUALLY are willing to help.

Rear wiper blade disconnected...how do we fix?


Have to remove the wiper arm & see if the splines are
damaged & if the motor works as it should
There are no easy vehicle fixes
You have to understand how something works & then
diagnose why it doesn't & make the repair
If you get lucky she only ruined the wiper arm &
not the motor or it's drive spline.

How do you change the wiper blades on this car...acura cl????


most folks would read the owners manual, or the instructions on the back of the new wiper blade pacakge. rewriting those instructions, without the illustrations, here would accomplish what?

take the car to autozone or advance and let one of their guys sell you a set and put them on for you.

How to change the wiper blade on a Chevy Traverse?


the instructions are in the owners manual and on the back of the package for the new blades. if you can not understand those instructions, why would reading them printed here make a difference? what you need to do is go to autozone or advance and buy the blades from them, their sales guys will come outside and install them for you. so where ever you got the set you have, take them back and go to one of the parts stores aforementioned.

My front wiper blades on a 200O Jeep TJ Sport does not work when it's very cold. I need to know if I can replace it myself if I buy the part. Thanks


No need to go to the dealership for these. Wiper blades are consumable items that should be replaced at first signs of wear. You can buy aftermarket wiper blades at any auto parts store. Pep Boys, NAPA, Checkers, etc.

Reading your question again, I just want to make sure I understand it correctly...is it the blades that dont work or is it the wiper drive motor that doesnt work?

How to Replace Wiper Blades Guide (Typical):
Potential tools needed to replace wiper blades:
  • Flat blade screwdriver (small)
  • Small nosed pliers
  • Latex or vinyl gloves
  • Safety goggles
To replace wiper blades theactual action of replacing the blade is no big deal, it's the locationof the blade down below the hood that can make it difficult though.Sometimes it helps to open the hood to gain access to the wiper blades.Other times it is helpful if the wiper blade is somewhere in the motionline of wiper action. The trick is to get the wiper to stop somewherein the wiper arc. Turn the wipers to the on position and allow thewipers to start, and then shut the key off when the wiper has arrivedin a desirable position on the windshield. To replace your wiper bladesplease follow the step by step instruction below. Also, watch the How to replace wiper blades video below to gain additional information. The method in which the wiper blades are attached will vary slightly.
  • Step 1: With the hood closed, turn the wiperson, when the wipers are in the middle of their arc turn the key to theoff position. (Note: if this can't be done because of wiper conditionand you want to avoid scratching the windshield please open your hoodto gain access)
  • Step 2: Locate the mounting clips at the top pivot on the wiper blade
  • Step 3: Release the clip and remove the wiper arm
  • Step 4: Match the size of the old blade against the new blade to ensure proper fit and operation
  • Step 5: Reinstall the new wiper blade and recheck wiper operation

Common Problems:
  • Make sure the wiper blades are the same size as the original blades.
  • When replacing wiper blades not getting the blade onthe mounting pin completely allowing the wiper arm to become dislodgedand possibly causing damage to the windshield.
  • Using wiper blades after the blade has failed permanently damaging the windshield by craving scratches in the wiper arc.
  • Wiper blade can create a chattering noise when theblade is not properly balanced allowing the blade to "flop" back andforth as the wiper direction changes.

I hope help you with this (remember rated this help) Good luck.
