Video Description

This video shows how to replace the front windshield wiper blades in your 2012 Volkswagen Passat. 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 Passat 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 Passat'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 Volkswagens the driver side wiper blade is larger than the passenger side blade - be sure to get the correct size blades for your Passat!
