To replace the windscreen wipers when they are worn is a simple enough task, that should take no longer than 5 mins to complete.

On the wiper itself, it has a small locating tab (arrowed) to fix it to the wiper arm, by releasing this tab the wiper can be easily removed from the arm, to fit the replacement wiper it is a simple matter to pushing the new wiper onto the arm using the tabĀ  provided.

On occasions you may find that the locating tab on the wiper, needs to be tightened, this can be done by adjusting its locating fitting on the wiper, it is a matter of pressing down and forward with a small screw driver to release the components from the wiper, then adjust with some pliers to create a bigger arch before putting it all back together in the reverse order, the tab should now be tighter and provide a better fit on the wiper arm.
