W i p e r B l a d e s W I P E R B L A D E R E P L A C E M E N T Front wiper blades
Rear wiper blades
Lift the wiper arm away from the windshield. Disconnect the blade by pushing the locking tab (see inset in illustration) to the unlock position and slide upward.
Fitting a replacement blade is a reversal of this process. Check that the blade is securely locked before returning the wiper assembly to the windshield.
Only fit replacement wiper blades that are identical to the original specification.
Grease, silicone and petrol based products impair the blade's wiping capability. Wash the wiper blades in warm soapy water and periodically check their condition.
If signs of hardness or cracking in the rubber are found, or if the wipers leave streaks or unwiped areas on the windshield during use, then the wiper blades should be replaced.
With the spare wheel removed from the taildoor, lift the wiper arm away from the rear screen. Pivot the blade assembly away from the arm (as arrowed), levering against resistance, until the two retaining lugs detach from their slots at the end of the arm. Carefully replace the arm to its stowed position.
To replace, position the wiper arm into the aperture in the middle of the blade assembly, line up the retaining lugs with the corresponding slots in the wiper arm and push firmly into position until the blade clips into place.
Clean the windshield regularly with an approved glass cleaner and ensure the screen is thoroughly cleaned before fitting replacement wiper blades.
