2013 Dart Wiper Blades
Raise Wiper Arm Off Window
This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 Dodge Dart in changing the front windshield window wiper blades.

Owners of other Chrysler, Dodge and RAM vehicles such as the Town & Country, 300, 200, Avenger, Charger, Journey, Challenger, Durango, Grand Caravan, and Ram C/V Tradesman minivan may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The OEM blade sizes in inches are as follows: Driver Side 26" and Passenger Side 18".

A few compatible replacement wiper blades with their part numbers include the following: Rain-X 5079281-1 & Rain-X 5079275-1, Bosch 26A & Bosch 18A, Anco 31-26 & Anco 31-18, Valeo 60026 & Valeo 60018, Michelin 8526 & Michelin 8518 and Trico 25-260 & Trico 25-180.

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

Pry Open Locking Tab
Plastic Lock Tab Released
Lift the wiper arm off the windshield until it remains in the raised position by itself.

Gently pry open the rectangular black plastic lock tab on the old wiper blade with a small flathead screwdriver.

Swing open the locking tab up and away from the windshield.

Pull Old Blade Down
Rotate Blade Perpendicular
Pull the old blade down to disengage it from the metal hook at the end of the wiper arm.

Rotate the old wiper blade until it is almost perpendicular with the wiper arm.

Pass Hook Through Opening
Towel - Protect Glass
Pass the metal hook at the end of the wiper arm through the opening in the center of the old wiper blade.

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

I recommend buying the Bosch 26A and Bosch 18A wiper blades since they have excellent reviews on Amazon.


Line Up New Wiper Blade
Pass Hook Through Opening
Line up the new wiper blade with the metal wiper arm.

The rubber blade should be facing away from the windshield.

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

Pull Bracket In To Hook
Swing Lock Tab Closed
Rotate the new wiper blade until it is almost parallel with the wiper arm.

Pull the new wiper blade up to secure the plastic mounting bracket in to the hook at the end of the metal wiper arm.

Swing the plastic locking tab closed and firmly snap it in to place.

New Wiper Blade Installed
Lower Arm To Window
Double check that the new wiper blade is securely installed.

Gently lower the wiper arm down to the windshield.

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