Sizing: Not all wipers are the same, and finding the right sized wipers is a must if you want the process to go smoothly. Wiper blades come in all different sizes, depending on the type of vehicle and can the year it was made. Make your shopping easy by referring to the wiper book, which can be found at any store that sells automotive parts. Once you find the right blades, you are ready to install. 

Installation: Armed with new wiper blades, it is time to replace the worn out wipers on your car. The first step in changing blades is to remove the old blades by lifting the wiper arm and depressing the tab on the old blade. With the tab depressed, the old wiper blades should come right off. To install the new blades, line up the wipers and move the hook over the top of the plastic tip. Pull the wiper blade tight on to the new arm and repeat the process for the other blade.

Maintenance: After you put on the new wipers, regular maintenance checks are needed to ensure your wipers do not wear out without your knowledge. Check your blades every few months to make sure they are in working condition. In extremely hot or cold climates, more frequent checks may be necessary.
