Dodge Nitro Wiper Blade Change

Does anyone know if the NeoForm wiper blades fit the Nitro 2010? Also is there anything better than these? Any advice would be greatly appreciated... Replacement windshield wiper blades for nearly all vehicles | Trico Products

Dodge Nitro: Rear Wiper Blade

I went "On-Line" to search for replacement wiper blades for my Wife's 2010 Ford Taurus Limited since they were 26" on the drivers side and 20" on the passengers side. Found a great site with a reference a current ANCO $15 per pair factory rebate per pair.

With this present rebate and free shipping I decided to add a set for my Nitro too.


REAR WIPER BLADE

More research was needed to replace the rear Nitro blade. The original factory 11" part number is 05140655AB for my 07 but found it was not listed on many Sites. With more research found that if I used 2011 as the year of my vehicle it showed a 12" blade being used. Don't know if the 2011 Nitro actually used a 12" rear blade or that it is now the replacement blade for ALL Nitros. Ordered a 12" replacement blade and installed it.

If you can not find a replacement 11" blade locally and want a 12" blade instead, here are some part numbers that will work.



ANCO......AN9112

Valeo .....R-12B



INSTALLING BLADES

Front- No issue installing front ANCO 19" blades

How to change 2007 Dodge Nitro wiper blades


Rear- I had issues removing old blade. Read you could push down towards the glass but could find any release button. Thought I would just remove the arm and take it inside and view from the back for a release, but the arm didn't want to come off either! Finally just broke the original blade off (pushed out the remaining broken pin ) and clicked on the new blade.



Laugh Of The Day

How often should I replace my wiper blades?

Experts recommend replacing your wipers every six months. Research suggests most people wait between 18 months and three years.

The factory rear blade on my 2011 is 12". I replaced my front ones with Bosch Icons right after I purchased my Nitro; however, they do not make on for the back.

Wiper Blades are Your Best Friends for a Rainy Day.

Quality wiper blades should evenly and effectively squeegee water out of their path in both directions no matter what speed you're going. Soft rubber compounds necessary for wiper performance are always under attack by road grit, the sun, acid rain, tree sap, ice, and especially winter salt. Of course, if the fastest wiper setting still makes you strain to see, you need to order wiper blades right here today. But unless they let you see very clearly, your wipers are more worn than you think. Ideally, they should be replaced every 6 months.



What are the signs of worn wiper blades? If they chatter up and down or squeak, that's caused by friction from dried, hardened rubber. When they streak without twigs and seeds lodged underneath, the blade has become pockmarked from salt, ice, or being yanked free of ice. And if you see overall smearing, the rubber blade has dried and warped causing uneven wear and improper pressure against the glass.



At CARiD, we aim to provide our customers with the finest Windshield Wiper Blades the industry can offer, which is why we accept no compromise when it comes to the quality. Created by the most reputable names in the industry, such as Rain-X, Michelin Wiper Blades, TRICO, Bosch the Windshield Wiper Blades we've gathered for you feature precise design and everlasting durability. Each of the Windshield Wiper Blades is skillfully engineered by the country's most experienced professionals and then crafted from premium materials to ensure quality that is second to none. Manufactured to satisfy even the most discerning aficionados, the Windshield Wiper Blades that we stock are ready to reveal the true nature of your vehicle.



Whichever wiper blade set you choose, you'll get longer life out of them by wiping more intermittently, and Rain-X exterior Glass Treatment allows you to do that. The liquid glass treatment works by penetrating and sealing microscopic glass pores with a hydrophobic coating to prevent water, sleet, and snow from sticking to the glass surface. Instead of naturally smearing all over upon impact, rain drops bead up and roll off leaving much of your glass area unobscured. Rain-X Glass Treatment applies easily with a dry cloth using firm, circular motion – then the final haze removes with a dry cloth or by washing with water. Reapply to ensure complete and uniform coverage. Rain-X also works well on shower doors and bathroom mirrors in your home. Rain-X typically lasts 3 months between applications.

The Importance of Winter Wiper Blades and Glass Treatment

Snow, ice, freezing rain, and frigid temperatures make winter driving treacherous; nevertheless you're prepared, right? But what about your wiper blades?

If they're the same ones that baked on your windshield all summer then you could be in for problems. How do you know if your wiper blades are any good? At no time of the year is seeing out of your windshield more important, and more difficult, than in winter. Quality wiper blades should evenly and effectively squeegee water out of their path in both directions no matter what speed you're going. Soft rubber compounds necessary for wiper performance are always under attack by road grit, the sun, acid rain, tree sap, ice, and especially winter salt. Arm your car or truck with Rain-X Glass Treatment and Rain-X wipers.

Rain-X Latitude 8-In-1 Wiper Blades are the ultimate blades for sleet and snow. Unlike conventional wiper blade frames, the Latitude's beam design won't collect ice and snow, which can freeze conventional frames to the point where the blade no longer contacts the windshield. With Latitude blades you won't have to interrupt your trip to clear ice and snow from wiper blade frames, only to have them freeze again. You can check the presentation of this product here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hqMcVY7FKqk

Rain-X® - Latitude™ Wiper Blade


Another wiper blades Rain-X offers are Weatherbeater™ 22" Wiper Blade.

Rain-X® - Weatherbeater™ Wiper Blade


Also Rain-X develops a line of related glass care products. Because Rain-X Glass Treatment requires the glass surface to be perfectly clean, Rain-X X-treme Clean is the perfect glass cleaner. It removes dirt, grime, and bugs, plus build-up that other cleaners leave behind, from glass and clear plastic. Rain-X 2-In-1 Glass Cleaner not only cleans, it also applies a rain repellent to improve wet weather driving. Click here to see how exactly it works: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yTpfaxI5DSI

And are you ready for the winter?

Add Windshield Washer Fluid

Add Windshield Washer Fluid Dodge Nitro (2007-2011)





Video Description

Adding windshield washer fluid to your 2010 Dodge Nitro is a fairly straightforward process. The video above shows you where the window washer fluid reservoir is located in your Nitro, how to remove the reservoir cap and add windshield washer fluid. The nice thing about adding windshield washer fluid is that you can't overfill the reservoir - once it's full, you can stop adding fluid!

Rear Wiper Blade Change Dodge Nitro (2007-2011)

Rear Wiper Blade Change Dodge Nitro (2007-2011)


Video Description

The video above shows you how to replace the rear (back) wiper blade in your 2010 Dodge Nitro. We recommend changing the wiper blades on your Nitro 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 Nitro'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.

Front Wiper Blade Change Dodge Nitro (2007-2011)

Front Wiper Blade Change Dodge Nitro (2007-2011)


Video Description

This video shows how to replace the front windshield wiper blades in your 2011 Dodge Nitro. 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 Nitro 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 Nitro'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 Dodges the driver side wiper blade is larger than the passenger side blade - be sure to get the correct size blades for your Nitro!
