Usually the edge of the blade just needs scrubbed with a kitchen scrubber to get them working well again. If that doesn't work, then the people at an auto parts store like Auto-Zone will help you change it. You'll have to buy them from an auto parts store to get help. Wal-Mart won't help you.

I need to change wiper blades on 2006 trailblazer. i can't get the wipers off.


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.

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

How do I change wiper blades on a Ford 500


This is a fairly simple job.
#1 Pull the wiper arm away from the vehicle.
#2 Turn the blade 90 degrees so that the blade and the arm make a 'capital T' shape.
#3 Pull the blade straight off of the arm.
#4 Install the new wiper blade so that it forms a ' T ' with the arm.
#5 Turn the blade back to the normal position in line with the arm.
#6 Ease the wiper arm and blade back against the windshield.
#7 You are done. Good luck

How to change the rubber on wiper blade of 06 corolla


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.

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.
