2018 Camry Wiper Arms
Turn Ignition To "On"
Turn Ignition "Off"
This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the XV70 eighth generation (2018, 2019 and probably also the 2020, 2021 & 2022 model years) Toyota Camry sedan in changing the front windshield window wiper blades.

Owners of other Toyota, Scion and Lexus vehicles such as the Avalon, Corolla, Prius, Yaris, Mirai, 86, Sienna, RAV4, Highlander, 4Runner, C-HR, Land Cruiser, Sequoia, Tacoma, Tundra, Venza, Hilux, RX 350, IS 250, IS 350, CT 200H, GS 450h, GX 470, LX 470, UX 200, NX 300 and UX 250h may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The OEM wiper blade sizes in inches are as follows: Driver Side 26" and Passenger Side 20".

A few compatible replacement wiper blades with their part numbers include the following: Aero 26" + 20", Bosch 26CA & Bosch 20CA, Trico 16-260 & Trico 16-200 and Rain-X RX30226 & Rain-X RX30220.

The only tool needed to remove and replace the wiper blades is a small plastic pry bar tool or a flathead screwdriver.


Lift To Mist For 2 Seconds
Wiper Service Position
Wiper Arms Pointed Up
In order to change the wiper blades, you'll first need to move the wiper arms to the "service position".

Turn the ignition switch to the "ON" position but don't start the engine.

Then turn off the ignition and move the wiper blade control stalk up to the "Mist" position for at least two seconds.

You should see the wiper arms move up across the windshield until they are pointing straight up.

Raise Wiper Arm
Pry Up Locking Tab
Lock Tab Released
Use a plastic pry bar tool or a flathead screwdriver to gently lift up the bottom edge of the black plastic lock tab in the center of the old wiper blade.

Swing up the hinged locking tab to release the old wiper blade.

Slide Blade Off Hook
Lift Blade Off Hook
Old Blade Removed
Firmly push the old wiper blade down to slide the mounting bracket out of the metal hook at the end of the wiper arm.

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

Lift the old wiper blade off the hook at the end of the wiper arm.


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

I recommend buying the Bosch 26CA and Bosch 20CA wiper blades since they have excellent reviews on Amazon.

Line up the new wiper blade with the wiper arm.

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

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

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

Slide Bracket Into Hook
Mount Secured In Hook
Swing Closed Lock Tab
Slide the new wiper blade up to secure the mounting bracket into the hook at the end of the metal wiper arm.

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

Swing down the black plastic locking tab.

Gently pop the locking tab into place to secure the new wiper blade.

Wiper Blades Replaced
Turn On Wipers
To move the wiper arms back into the lowered "ready" position, move the wiper control stalk down and then back to the "Off" position.

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

Be sure to record the wiper blade change in your vehicle's service records.
