This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the second generation (2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 & 2015) Honda Pilot SUV in changing the front windshield window wiper blades.

Owner's of other Honda or Acura vehicles such as the Odyssey, Insight, Ridgeline, CR-V, Fit, Civic, CR-Z, Crosstour, Accord, MDX, RDX, RLX, TL, TSX and ILX may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The OEM blade sizes in inches are as follows: Driver Side 22" and Passenger Side 21".

A few compatible replacement wiper blades with their part numbers are as follows: Bosch 22A & Bosch 21B, Rain-X 5079279-1 & Rain-X 5079278-1, Valeo 900221B & Valeo 900211B, Anco 31-22 & Anco 31-21, Michelin 8522 & Michelin 8521, Trico 25-220 & Trico 25-210, Silblade WB122S & Silblade WB121S and ACDelco 8-4422 & ACDelco 8-4421.

Push In Release Tab
Slide Bracket Down
Rotate Old Wiper Blade
The first step is to lift the wiper arm off the windshield until it remains in the raised position by itself.

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

Push the small black plastic tab in towards the metal wiper arm to release the mounting bracket.

Hold in the tab while pulling the mounting bracket in the center of the blade down and out of 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 the metal hook through the opening in the center of the old blade.

I recommend buying the  Bosch 22A and Bosch 21B wiper blades since they have excellent reviews on Amazon.

Old Blade Removed
Towel - Protect Glass
Line Up New Wiper Blade
Line up the new wiper blade with the metal hook at 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 new wiper blade.

Pass Hook Through Opening
Slide Bracket In To Hook
Lower Wiper Arm
Rotate the new wiper blade until it is almost parallel with the wiper arm.

Slide the plastic mounting bracket in the center of the wiper blade up and in to the metal hook.

Make sure that the new wiper blade is securely attached to the wiper arm.

Gently lower the wiper arm down to the windshield.

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