Hi, I’m Mike from 1A Auto. We’ve been selling auto parts for over 30 years!

This wiper is loose, but before I remove it, just kind of eyeball it. It should be there. That's lined up with the other wiper. I'll take some masking tape and just put it right there just so I know it needs to be at the bottom of the tape when I reinstall it. Do that same for the other side.

Use the small flap on your screwdriver. Pop this little plastic cap off so I can get to the bolt that's holding the wiper blade on. It's a 14 millimeter nut. This wiper blade's real loose. See if I can get it. Using a ratcheting wrench just to get it loose. Spring tension may start to push it up. You can push it back down to help you get the nut off. Fold it up, and you might have to wiggle a little bit. It should come right off. I'll put that aside, so we can reuse it. Do the same to this one.

This wiper arm is marked P for passenger side. Put this one over here. Get it on to the spawns, but I'll move it and line it up. Don't like where that went. So, you can always pick it up and lay it back down. It's where I want it. Put the nut back on. And I'll take this back up. Should be good there.

This one is marked D for driver's side. Get down on the spawns. Get the arm wound up. Start the bolts. Start the nut using the ratcheting wrench on this side. Clearance of the hood is tight. Nice and tight. Just reinstall the caps. Take the tape off.
