How to Change Wiper Blades

If you notice any streaking or smearing on your windscreen, chattering or noisy operation of your wiper blades and assembly, physical wear or damage to the blades themselves – it’s time to change your wiper blades!

Damage can be in the form of frayed or torn wiper blades, or excessive movement, corrosion or frame deterioration to the actual wiper assembly.

Changing wiper blades might look easy but it can be a little frustrating if you've never done it before. If you prefer some assistance then ask us as we have a range of fitment services.

What you'll Need

We stocks a range of wiper blades and assemblies.

Our selection of wiper refills provides numerous features to choose from, including:

  • Multi and single edge blades
  • Rubber or silicone blade edge
  • Plastic or metal backing
  • Colour (even pink and purple!)
Tips & warnings
  • Don’t forget to top up your windscreen washer reservoir with clean water and decent quality windscreen wash additive.
  • When replacing the blade only, ensure the backing is seated correctly in each claw. If it isn't, the blade could become loose and cause serious damage to your glass.
Before you Start

Make sure the width of the wiper blade selected is correct - refer to catalogue in store or measure the blade claw width yourself.



Lift Blade

Lift blade assembly from the windscreen

Remove Previous Blade

Remove the old blade by squeezing the end with the clip attached together and withdrawing it from the assembly.

Place New Wiper In

Insert the new wiper blade into all blade claws and firmly lock the metal retaining clip into the end claw.

Ensure that all the claws are engaged in the backing, if you don’t do that, you can damage your windscreen.

If you’re fitting multi-fit blades, check that the correct recess has been used. For 6.5mm width blades, slide the refill through the top recess. For 8.5mm width blades, slide it through the bottom or widest recess.

Cut to Required Length

Whilst holding the blade, cut the refill to the required length, but leave a minimum of 25mm from the end claw.
