How To Fit Your Wiper Blades Like A Pro In A Few Simple Steps

Learn how to fit your own wiper blades in minutes using our helpful guide.

Fitting your own wiper blades looks fiddly, right? Especially if it’s something you’ve never done before. 

But it’s actually quite simple, and you can get the job done in minutes – so long as you know how to remove your old wipers and fit your new ones. 

In this guide, we’ll show you how to fit your new wiper blades to your car in one short, fuss-free process. Read on to become a fitting pro! 


Installing your new wiper blades – step by step

Once you’ve ordered the correct replacement wiper blades for your car, you’ll be ready to make the switch. Still yet to order yours? Check out our handy vehicle registration input tool to shop wiper blades designed for your specific vehicle. 

Now, onto fitting! Before making a start, you may want to give your windscreen a good clean. After all, you don’t want to fit your brand-new wiper blades onto a dirty windscreen!  

These are the steps you then need to follow to replace your wiper blades: 

  1. Lift up the wiper arm/s – gently lift the wiper into a standing position. If your front windscreen has two wiper blades, replace one at a time to keep things simple. 
  2. Place a cloth over the windscreen for protection – this will help avoid any damage if the wiper arm springs back into place. 
  3. Take hold of the wiper blade – this may involve turning the blade length-ways, or horizontally.  
  4. Remove the old wiper blade – find the adaptor that secures the blade to the wiper arm to disconnect it. This varies from wiper to wiper, with some in the form of a pinch tab, button, clip or hook. Did you know? You can recycle your old wiper blades! Just head to your local waste collection facility. 
  5. Using the adaptor provided (if not already pre-fitted), clip your new wiper blade into place on the wiper arm. Again, this varies depending on the type of wiper, so use our helpful fitting guide videos for specific guidance. 

After fitting your new wiper blade, you may want to test it by operating your windscreen washer system. This will make sure the new blade is secure and functioning correctly.
