Replacing windscreen wiper blades 1

Do not raise the window wiper arm 4.

- Lower the windscreen wiper stalk fully: the wiper blades will stop slightly away from the bonnet;

- with the ignition off, press tab 2 on blade 1;

- pull the blade towards you to release it;

- disconnect the windscreen washer fluid pipe 3.

To refit

To refit the wiper blade, proceed in the reverse order to removal. Ensure that the blade is locked and the screen washer fluid pipe is connected properly.

Check the condition of the wiper blades. You are responsible for their service life:

- clean the blades and the windscreen regularly with soap and water;

- do not use them when the windscreen is dry;

- free them from the windscreen when they have not been used for a long time.

As the windscreen wiper blades 1 are specific to the windscreen, they must be replaced with equivalent windscreen wiper blades.

Consult an approved dealer.

- In frosty weather, make sure that the wiper blades are not stuck by ice (to avoid the risk of the motor overheating).

- Check the condition of the wiper blades.

Replace the wiper blades as soon as their performance starts to diminish (approximately once a year).

Whilst changing the blade, take care not to drop the arm onto the window after it has been removed as this may break the window.
