2016 Frontier Wiper Blades
Raise Wiper Arm Off Window
Rotate Away Old Blade
This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the second generation "D40 Series" (2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 & 2016) Nissan Frontier pickup truck in changing the front windshield window wiper blades.

Owners of other Nissan or Infiniti vehicles such as the Navara, Versa, Maxima, Juke, Rogue, Altima, Xterra, Pathfinder, Murano, Cube, Armada, Leaf, Quest, Sentra, Teana, 370Z, GT-R, Titan, G25, G37, M35, QX56, QX60 and M37 may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The OEM blade sizes in inches are as follows: Driver Side 24" and Passenger Side 18".

A few compatible replacement wiper blades with their part numbers are as follows: Bosch 24A & Bosch 18A, Rain-X 5079280-1 & Rain-X 5079275-1, Anco 31-24 & Anco 31-18, and Michelin 8524 & Michelin 8518.

Push In Release Tab
Old Wiper Blade Released
Slide Bracket Out of Hook
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.

Press in the small black plastic tab to release the mounting bracket at the center of the old wiper blade from the hook at the end of the metal wiper arm.

Slide the mounting bracket down and out of the metal hook at the end of the wiper arm.

Pass Hook Through Opening
Towel - Protect Window
Line Up New Wiper Blade
Rotate the old wiper blade until is perpendicular (90 degree angle) with the wiper arm.

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

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

I recommend buying the Bosch 24A and Bosch 18A wiper blades since they have excellent reviews on Amazon.

Line up the new wiper blade with the wiper arm. The rubber blade should be facing up and away from the vehicle.

Pass Hook Through Hole
Slide Bracket In To Hook
Lower Wiper To Window
Pass the metal hook at the end of the wiper arm through the opening in the new wiper blade.

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

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

The mounting bracket should "click" securely in to place. Double check that the new wiper blade is locked in place.

Gently lower the wiper arm to the windshield.

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