In this clip we are going to talk about the proper reassembly of your wiper blade. As you can see, this wiper blade has two distinct ends on it. What I am going to do is bend them together to show you the differences. You can see this is an open end; that;s your lead end. There's no stops or blocks inside there. This is your trailing end or the locking portion of it. As you can see there is a divot right there; that's where the wiper blade metal portion of the arm locks into the rubber portion and inside here is where your guide springs locks together. Pretty much what you do is assemble one of these. You can see the notch there. That lines up in the top groove in its corresponding position. Squeeze together like so and put the one on the other side and give it a squeeze. This is an important step. You are going to want to make sure they are seated properly. Once you have the guides springs in, its relatively straight forward. These slides line up on these slot below them, just line them up and slide the wiper blade element onto the blade arms assembly. It's a tougher task than it appears. I've seen season mechanics struggle with these. I myself has had some trouble with them before. Slide them on right like so. Make sure to slide it down till that clip here locks into the end portion. Once that is done, it won't slide around on you and that is your properly reassembled wiper blade.
