Wiper blades should be cleaned regularly with window cleaning solution and a soft sponge or cloth. They should be changed once a year or when necessary.
To remove the wiper blades,
- Hinge the wiper arm up, and position the blade horizontally.
- Press the retaining spring and push the blade towards the windscreen at the same time.
To secure the new wiper blades,
- The retaining spring must engage audibly in the wiper arm.
- When fitting wiper blades with moulded wind deflectors, one should ensure that the deflector is pointing downwards.
