4th Generation How to replace wiper blade of a 97 Camry....

Guy at Kragen's suggested I use the Bosch supposedly since they last longer. Not sure if he was correct but I bought them anyways.

But me being a newbie, I don't know how to replace these. Done the refills on my old Camry but never replace the wiper blades as well.

Anybody with pix on how to do it?

Thanks

For my Gen 5, I just looked in this book at wal mart and found the sizes for my blades and bought Rain-X blades. The directions were on the back and it took awhile to figure out but i got it in the end.

When you try to take them off you can kinda figure out how to do it. You take off the wiper blade by holding down this clip and then sliding it off and you're left with a hook. With the hook you hook it onto the new wiper blade and it snaps on.

Not much of a good description but that's how i got it Good luck!

The end of the wiper arm looks like a J or a hook. When you raise the arm and rotate the blade, you should be able to see a little thing you can squeeze. Squeeze that and slide the blade down towards the base of the arm.

Installation is the opposite of removal.

BTW, if you have a Toyota dealer in the area, you can keep the Toyota blades and get rubber inserts for them.

If you are a ghetto dog on a budget, keep a set of blades installed on the outside that just gets burnt and dried up. Keep a set of good blades in the trunk and switch them out when it rains.

I dunno about San Jose, but out here, a new set of blades lasts about 4 months before they start streaking.
