I'm Andy from 1A Auto. In this video, I'm going to show you how to replace the front wiper blades on the 2012 Ford Escape. If you need parts for your vehicle, click the link in the description and head over to

So, I'm going to grab the arm, slide the arm up, and then, at the bottom of the blade, where it connects to the arm, there's two little tabs. You push them in on both sides. Then, you're just going to rotate the blade up like that, pull the blade off.

So, then I'll pull the arm back up. If you push this arm down, just gently put it down on the glass, you don't want it to get slammed down on the glass. And then, I'm just going to slide the arm in right like this, and then lock it in place. You might have to push in on those two little tabs. Make sure it's nice and secure. Gently put the blade down here.

And you can do the same for the other side.
