This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the second generation (2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and probably also the updated 2020 model year) GM Chevrolet Colorado truck in changing the front windshield window wiper blades.

Owners of other General Motors vehicles from Chevrolet, GMC, Cadillac, Buick and Holden such as the Trax, Equinox, Traverse, Blazer, Tahoe, Suburban, Sonic, Cruze, Trailblazer, Spark, Malibu, Impala, Volt, Bolt, Corvette, Camaro, Silverado, Express, Regal, LaCrosse, Cascada, Encore, Enclave, Envision, Canyon, Sierra, Terrain, Acadia, Yukon, XT4, XT5, XT6, Escalade, CT5, CTS, XTS, CT6, ATS, Astra and Commodore may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The OEM wiper blade sizes in inches are as follows: Driver Side 22" and Passenger Side 18".

A few compatible replacement wiper blades with their part numbers include the following: Bosch 22CA & Bosch 18CA, Michelin 14522 & Michelin 14518, Trico 18-220 & Trico 18-180 and ANCO C-22-OE & Anco C-18-OE.

Attention: Please verify the correct part numbers for your truck by using the Amazon Part Finder website. The wiper blade type might be different for earlier model years. The truck shown on this page is a 2019 model year.

No tools are required 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 at the center of the wiper blade's mounting bracket.


Push In Release Tab
Slide Old Blade Off Arm
Rotate Old Wiper Blade
Push in the release tab towards the metal wiper arm and hold it in place.

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

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

Lift Old Blade Off Arm
Towel - Protect Glass
Line Up New Wiper Blade
Pull the old wiper blade off the end of the wiper arm.

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

I recommend buying the Bosch 22CA and Bosch 18CA wiper blades since they have excellent reviews on Amazon.

Line up the new wiper blade with the metal wiper arm.

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

Line Up New Wiper Blade
Rotate Blade Towards Arm
Slide Bracket Into Hook
Pass the hook at the end of the wiper arm through the opening in the middle of the new wiper blade.

Slide the black plastic mounting bracket up and into the metal hook.

You should feel or hear the mounting bracket "click" into the metal hook at the end of the wiper arm.

Double check that the new wiper blade is securely attached.

New Blade Attached
Lower Blade To Window
New Wiper Blades Installed
Gently lower the wiper blade down to the windshield.

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

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