You’ll need a new wiper blade and your hands to complete this repair.

Lift up your wiper arm. You'll find two clips here at the bottom of the wiper. Push those together. Pull out on the bottom and unhook the wiper. Carefully place the arm back down on the windshield so it doesn't snap down and break while you get your new wiper blade.

These two pins are clamped together. Then a hook sits into this channel, so you squeeze those together and turn it down. Release it from the hook. Then lift the wiper off of the hook.

We'll place it over the hook, rotate it in, and pinch these clips together to snap it up in place. Lift your wiper arm off of the windshield. Lay the hook into its groove, rotate it in, squeeze the clips, push them up until they lock in, and just pull down on the wiper to make sure it's not coming out. Repeat these steps with the other wiper arm, if necessary.
