How do I change the wiper blades on my Tesla Model S?

I need to change the wiper blades on my Model S, but I'm really nervous about messing up my car. How do I do it properly?

Before you start, use your touchscreen to set your wipers to Service Mode. Then, follow these steps:
  • Lift the wiper arm up slightly from the windshield.
  • While still holding the wiper arm, press down on the locking tab and slide the blade off the arm.
  • Put a cloth under the end of the wiper arm to protect your car.
  • Slide your new wiper blade onto the arm until it clicks in place.
  • Set the wiper arm back onto the windshield.
  • Repeat the same process on your other wiper arm.
  • Turn off Service Mode.
If you have any further problems with your wipers, you can get Tesla to adjust them. If the arms aren’t properly aligned, your windshield won’t get cleaned properly and you could be left with spots or streaks.
When you have an expensive car like a Tesla, you want to take good care of your vehicle. Basic maintenance is a great step, but another important way to take care of your car is by getting the best insurance. The Jerry app can help by collecting car insurance quotes for you, so you can compare rates and coverages in minutes.
