It is so nice of you to take care of this maintenance for your son!
Changing the wiper blades on a 2016 Toyota Corolla can be done quickly and easily once you have the proper replacement blades. Just follow these steps:
  • Start with the driver’s side wiper. Push the retaining clip on the wiper blade up towards the arm and push the blade backward to free it from the hook on the wiper arm.
  • Once the blade is free from the hook, push it a few inches down the arm to disconnect it. When the hook is fully visible, the blade will be free and can be taken off.
  • Position the new blade so that the hook is pointing at the wiper attachment. The hook will go over the top of the attachment.
  • Lock the blade in place
  • Pull the blade toward the end of the arm. You’ll hear a click when it locks into position.
Next, you will repeat the process on the passenger side, and you are all set! Test the wipers to make sure they work properly before you hit the road.
