How To Replace Honda Wiper Inserts

Are your wipers streaking, chirping or no longer cleaning like they should? Chances are you need some new wiper inserts. As long as you have Honda blades installed you can replace just the rubber inserts which are much cheaper than the cost of all new blades. Installation is easy. Just follow the directions below*.

*Some Honda models may vary.

Step 1 –  Turn the ignition switch to the ON (II) position and activate the wipers. When the wipers are in the upright position, turn

Wipers That Smear, Streak or Chatter

A buildup of road film, oil, or grease on the windshield or the wiper blades can cause the wiper blades to smear, streak, or chatter when being used. Normally wiper blades are good for about 6 months but if you are experiencing these symptoms you may want to try the following.

• Use Glass Cleaner to thoroughly clean the windshield removing anything that might be stuck to the glass. Windshield washer fluid and rain alone will not remove pesky debris.

• Use Windshield Washer Concentrate Cleaner & Antifreeze straight from the bottle on a soft cloth to clean the wiper blades. Doing so will condition the blade rubber. If the wiper blades still smear, streak, or chatter then you may want to consider replacement.
