Blue Probe It’s the parting gift when you host an alien abduction

Even YouTube let me down on this one. It is quite simple for this model year.

  1. Lift the plastic arm up away from the rear window (only allows for 3 inches or so)
  2. Pull the wiper blade out of the plastic arm. Yup, it’s just that simple. Pull the wiper blade assembly toward the window and out of the plastic arm. It doesn’t even really snap it it is just kind of held in by force.
  3. When you take it out, notice how the middle of the assembly looks in the very middle. Probably a short bar on the left and a hole on the right. We’ll want to put the new one in the same way.
  4. The new one has a little clip over the bar. Remove the little clip and toss it.
  5. To install the new one, run your finger along inside the plastic arm. In the middle you will feel two plastic things next to each other that form a notch. That is where the bar will slide into. So just push it up in there, and your done.

Note to other model years. If you try following the other method of popping up the base of the plastic arm and then sliding the whole plastic arm to the left, and feel a springy resistance, then the directions above apply to you.

Yes, it works!! If the wiper comes with another adapter, don't use it. Just the bare bar presses into the notch on the plastic arm.
