简介

Wiper blade replacement is something that everyone at times has trouble doing. This guide highlights and details how to properly replace wiper blades on a 2017 Ford Escape. There are some things that are useful to know beforehand. Firstly the size required for the front wiper blades is 28 inches. For this replacement, I have decided that the Rain-X Latitude Wiper Blades are the best choice. Do ensure to take care when dealing with the wiper arms since they can be bent. Be sure to know when your wiper blades need changing. Inspect your blades for cracks in the rubber or tearing. The sure way of knowing is if your wiper blades leave streaks on the windshield when wiping.

    • Starting with the driver's side wiper blade, gently lift the wiper blade until it is in an upright position and locked into place.

    • The wiper blade should be able to stand on its own without any support.

    • Look for a clip/tab on the top of the wiper blade. Push the tab until it slides out of the metal arm and then the wiper blade should come right out of the metal arm.

    • Be careful so as to not bend the arm.

    • Unpackage a new wiper blade. (Please ensure that you purchase the correct type of wiper blades. The wiper blade brand that I have chosen for this guide is the Rain-X Latitude Wiper.)

    • After several tries and fails, I've determined the Rain-X Latitude wiper blade to be the best fit. Other brands do not come with an adapter.

    • The 2017 Ford Escape has a PTB (Push Tab Button) arm. The Latitude wipers come with a pre-attached adapter as well as another one in the package. Remove the pre-attached adapter.

    • This requires quite a bit of effort.

    • Refrain from using a screwdriver to pry the adapter out since you may damage the blade.

    • Install the new adapter ensuring the connector aligns with the blade assembly. The adapter must click for a secure fit.

    • The top of the adapter has a tiny black housing. Fit the top of the wiper arm into the housing and align the bottom of the adapter with the tabs on the arm. Press firmly until you hear a click. Finally the wiper blade is installed.
