Windshield Wiper Replacement

I'd recommend replacing your windshield wipers as part of your 2-year service. I don't, however, include them with my 2-year maintenance packages because I usually direct people to buy them elsewhere. If you'd like the OEM wiper blades, just let me know and I'll get them for you. Otherwise, I recommend Bosch Icons, which are great value for money and the ones I use on all of my vehicles.

If you'd like to support DIYs like this one that show you how to do tasks but don't result in a sale on Redpants, please use the links for the wiper blades below. I'll receive an affiliate referral fee if you click the links and then buy the items during that visit. You save a bunch of money, and I make a few [pennies]. It's a win-win!

DISCLAIMER: As always, follow all safety protocols. Don't undertake this task if you aren't comfortable with it and fully understand it. You are ultimately responsible for anything you do. Neither Redpants, LLC or myself is responsible or liable for anything that may occur.

Step 1
While holding the 8 and 9 buttons on the infotainment control panel, turn the ignition key from 'O' to position 'II'. This will bring the wiper blades out from under the hood so you can change them. When the wipers have stopped in position, return the key to the 'O' position.

Step 2
Lift the wiper arm up and remove the wiper blade. Install the new wiper blade and set the wiper arm back down.

Step 3
Repeat Step 2 for the other side.

Step 4
To return the arms to their default position, either move the key back to position 'II' or operate the wiper stalk.

All done!
