2006 MDX Windshield
Raise Window Wiper Arm
Rotate Away Old Blade
This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically created to assist owners of the first generation (2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005 & 2006) Acura MDX in changing the front windshield window wiper blades.

Owners of other Acura or Honda vehicles such as the RDX, ILX, TLX, RLX, TL, CL, RSX, RL, TSX, ZDX, NSX, Integra, Pilot, Accord, Civic, Fit, Clarity, CR-V, CR-Z, HR-V, Odyssey, Element  and Ridgeline 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 21".

A few compatible replacement wiper blades with their part numbers include the following: Bosch 24A & Bosch 21B, Rain-X 5079280-2 & Rain-X 5079278-2, Anco 31-24 & Anco 31-21, Michelin 8524 & Michelin 8521, Aero 24" + 21", Trico 25-240 & Trico 25-210 and PIAA 95060 & PIAA 95053.

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

Push In Release Tab
Pull Bracket Out of Hook
Separate Blade From Arm
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 metal wiper arm at a slight angle.

Push the small black plastic tab in towards the metal wiper arm to release the old wiper blade.

Pull the old wiper blade down to slide the plastic mounting bracket out of the metal hook at the end of the wiper arm.

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

Pull the old wiper blade off the wiper arm.

Towel - Protect Glass
Line Up New Blade & Hook
Pass Hook Through Opening


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

I recommend buying the Bosch 24A and Bosch 21B wiper blades since they have excellent reviews on Amazon.

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

The rubber wiper blade should be pointing out away from the vehicle.

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

Pull Bracket Up Into Hook
Blade Secured To Arm
Lower Arm To Window
Pull the new wiper blade up until the plastic mounting bracket clicks securely into the metal hook at the end of the wiper arm.

Gently lower the wiper arm and blade down to the windshield.

For the best wiper performance, thoroughly clean off the window and apply a glass treatment product that will repel water such as Rain-X.
