2019 Versa Wipers
Raise Wiper Arm
Rotate Away Old Blade
This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the second generation 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 Nissan Versa sedan in changing the front windshield window wiper blades.

Owners of other Nissan vehicle such as the Sentra, Altima, Maxima, Murano, Rogue,  Note, Leaf, Juke, Kicks, Latio, Almera, Sunny, Qashqai, NV200, Pathfinder, Frontier and X-Trail may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The OEM wiper blade sizes in inches are as follows: Driver Side 24" and Passenger Side 14".

A few compatible replacement wiper blades with their part numbers include the following: Rain-X 5079280-2 & Rain-X 5079272-2, Anco 31-24 & Anco 31-14, Trico 24-1 & Trico 25-140 and Motium 24" + 14".

No tools are needed to remove and replace the wiper blades.

The first step is to lift the wiper arm off the windshield until it remains in the raised position by itself.

Rotate the old wiper blade away from the wiper arm at a slight angle.

Locate the small black plastic release tab.


Push In Release Tab
Pull Mount Out of Hook
Pull Old Blade Off Arm
Gently push in the black plastic release tab towards the metal wiper arm.

Hold the release tab in place.

Carefully pull the old wiper blade down to slide the mounting bracket out of the hook at the end of the wiper arm.

Rotate the old wiper blade until it is perpendicular (at a 90 degree angle) with the wiper arm.

Pull the old wiper blade off the end of the wiper arm.

Towel - Protect Glass
Line Up New Blade
Pass Hook Through Hole
Place a towel down on the windshield to protect the glass from being chipped, shattered, cracked or scratched just in case the wiper arm smacks down on to the window while you are replacing the wiper blade.

Line up the new wiper blade with the end of the wiper arm.

The rubber blade should be pointing out away from the windshield.

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

Rotate Blade Parallel
Pull Bracket Into Hook
Lower Blade To Window
Rotate the new wiper blade until it is parallel with the wiper arm.

Carefully pull the wiper blade up into the metal hook at the end of the wiper arm.

You should feel or hear the bracket "click" securely into place.

Double check that the new wiper blade is securely attached.

Gently lower the wiper arm back down to the windshield.

For the best wiper performance, I recommend thoroughly cleaning off the windshield and applying a window treatment product that will repel water from the glass such as Rain-X.

Be sure to write down the wiper blade change in your car's service records.
