How To Change INFINITI Windshield Wipers

This has probably happened to most drivers – you’re driving in the heavy storm, and you realize that your windshield wipers aren’t doing their job correctly, making it challenging to watch out for the road. For your safety, your INFINITI’s windshield should be replaced every six to twelve months to ensure you have visibility on a rainy day. Read on for a step-by-step guide on how to change out your windshield wipers.

Inspecting and Checking Your Windshield Wipers

Replacing your windshield blade can be a challenging feat. But, as long as you follow this step-by-step guide, you will be a master at this in no time! Before heading over to the store, here are the preparations you need to do:

  • First, check for any signs of cracks, wear and tear. If any of the signs are present, it is time for a replacement.
  • Before buying your new set of windshield wiper replacements at the auto parts store, measure your old set to ensure you play the correct type of blades.
  • After measuring, visit your local auto parts store and provide the sales associate with the measurements and information about your INFINITI vehicle.

Replacing Your Windshield Wiper Blades

Once you have procured the correct set of windshield wipers, it is time to get to work. While you might feel the nerve start to creep in, replacing your windshield wipers is much easier than you think. Here are the steps on what you will need to do:

  • Raise the windshield and place it at a 90-degree angle and in an upright manner. The wipers should be positioned in a horizontal position.
  • Take extra precautions when raising the windshield wiper; ensure that you are positioning accurately. Their spring could cause it to repel back and possibly crack the windshield.
  • Proceed to remove the blades gently. Most INFINITI wipers will have a tab that enables you to detach the two different components.
  • Before installing the new blades, clean the wipers with a cloth to remove any dirt and dust.
  • It is time to insert the new blade, with it pointing towards your car, slot it through the connector into the hook and give it a slight pull until it is wholly slotted in.
  • After the blades are slotted in, carefully lower the arm and put the windshield wipers back in their original positions.
  • Once they are back to their positions, it would be wise to give a test run to ensure they are correctly installed to provide complete visibility the next time a downpour happens.

To ensure you are entirely safe, you should ensure that your car has comprehensive protection and coverage to have peace of mind while you are out on the road.
