It’s very nice of you to want to return your sister’s car in top condition! The windshield wipers are a good, easy place to start.
To replace the windshield wipers on your sister’s 2012 Honda Civic, follow these simple steps:
  • Buy the proper size windshield wipers. If you aren’t sure what size you need, check the owner’s manual.
  • Position your wipers midway across the windshield by turning them on and off again.
  • Lift your wipers away from your windshield. This will make the changing process easier.
  • Take the old wipers out by releasing the hook attachment at the base of the wiper blades. Remove and replace the wipers one side at a time to avoid putting your blades on the wrong sides.
  • Push the end of the wiper arm through the hole on the adapter until it clicks.
  • Lower your wipers and test them before discarding the old wipers and packaging.
Once the wipers are changed, consider checking out Jerry, a personal insurance broker that lives in your pocket.
