2016 Pathfinder Wiper Blades
Raise Wiper Arm Off Window
Rotate Old Wiper Blade
This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the fourth generation (2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and maybe also the updated 2017 model year) Nissan Pathfinder SUV in changing the front windshield wiper blades.

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

The OEM wiper blade sizes in inches are as follows: Driver Side 26" and Passenger Side 17".

A few compatible replacement wiper blades with their part numbers are as follows: Bosch 26A & Bosch 17A, Rain-X 5079281-2 & Rain-X 5079283-2, Aero 26" & Aero 17", Anco 31-26 & Anco 31-17, Michelin 8526 & Michelin 8517, Trico 18-260 & Trico 18-170 and Valeo 900261B & Valeo 900171B.

No tools are needed to replace the windshield wiper blades.

Black Plastic Release Tab
Push In Release Tab
Pull Blade Down & Off 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.

Locate the small black plastic tab at the center of the old wiper blade.

Push in the release tab on the old wiper blade before sliding it down and out of the metal hook at the end of the wiper arm.

Separate the old wiper blade from the wiper arm.

Towel - Protect Glass
Metal Hook - Wiper Arm
Line Up Bracket & Hook


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

Line up the mounting bracket at the center of the new wiper blade with the metal hook at the end of the wiper arm.

Pull Blade Up In To Hook
Lower Wiper Arm To Window
Wiper Blades Replaced
Slide the mounting bracket on the wiper blade up and in to the hook at the end of the wiper arm until it "clicks" in to place.

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

Gently lower the wiper arm to the windshield.

For the best wiper performance, thoroughly clean off the windshield and apply a glass treatment product such as Rain-X.
