This video shows how to replace the front windshield wiper blades in your 2011 BMW X3. Always replace both wiper blades, even if only one side is streaking - the rubber on the opposite side is likely worn as well. We recommend changing the wiper blades on your X3 at least once a year even if you don't use your wipers much - the sun wears out your wiper blades more than using them to wipe water. Another trick to enhance the longevity of your X3's wiper blades is to scrape off the ice and snow from the windshield before using your wipers. A layer of ice is known to have sharp edges that can reduce the effectiveness of the micro edge of the rubber wiper blade.
In most BMWs the driver side wiper blade is larger than the passenger side blade - be sure to get the correct size blades for your X3!
