2013 Civic LX Wipers
Raise Wiper Arm Off Window
Pry Open Locking Tab
This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the ninth generation (2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and maybe also the 2016) Honda Civic in changing the front windshield window wiper blades.

Owners of other Honda or Acura vehicles such as the Accord, Crosstour, CR-V, CR-Z, Fit, Insight, Odyssey, Pilot, Ridgeline, ILX, TSX, TLX, TL, RLX, RDX and MDX may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

Replacement wiper blades with their sizes in inches for the Civic sedan are Driver Side 26" and Passenger Side 22".

The sizes for the Civic coupe are Driver 28" and Passenger 24".

A few compatible 26" & 22" wiper blades for the four door sedan with their parts numbers are as follows: Trico 26-1HB & Trico 22-1HB, Bosch 26-CA & Bosch 22-CA, Anco 31-26 & Anco 31-22, Rain-X RX30226 & Rain-X RX30222 and Valeo 900-26-1B & Valeo 900-22-1B.


Replacement 28" & 24" blades for the 2 door coupe with their part numbers are as follows: Anco C-28-UB & Anco C-24-UB, Trico 28-1HB & Trico 24-1HB, Valeo 600-28 & Valeo 600-24 and Bosch 28-CA & Bosch 24-CA.
Lock Tab Opened
Slide Bracket Off Hook
Rotate Blade Away
The first step is to lift the wiper arm off the windshield until it stays in the raised position by itself.

Then pry open the black plastic locking tab at the center of the old wiper blade with a small flathead screwdriver.

Swing the lock tab up and rotate the old wiper blade away from the arm at a slight angle.

Slide the old wiper blade down to disengage the plastic mounting bracket from the metal hook at the end of the arm.

Pull Blade Off Wiper Arm
Towel - Protect Glass
Line Up Blade & Arm
Continue rotating the blade until it is perpendicular with the metal wiper arm.

Pass the hook at the end of the arm through the opening in the old wiper blade.

Place a towel on the windshield to protect the window from being chipped, cracked or shattered just in case the metal wiper arm smacks down on to the glass.

I'd recommend buying the Bosch 26-CA and Bosch 22-CA wiper blades since they have the best reviews on Amazon.


Pass Hook Through Opening
Rotate Blade Parallel
Slide Bracket In Hook
Hold the new wiper blade at a perpendicular angle to the metal arm.

Pass the metal hook at the end of the arm through the opening in the new blade.

Rotate the new blade until it is almost parallel with the wiper arm.

Slide the plastic mounting bracket at the center of the new wiper blade up in to the metal hook.

The mounting bracket should "click" securely in to place.

Close Locking Tab
Lock Tab Closed
Lower Wiper To Window
Snap the black plastic locking tab closed to secure the new wiper blade.

Gently lower the wiper assembly to the windshield.

For the best wiper performance, I'd recommend thoroughly cleaning the windshield and applying a window treatment product such as Rain-X or Zaino Glass Polish.
