How to Replace Wiper Blades | 2010-2014 Subaru Outback

Today I’m changing the front and rear wiper blades on my 2012 Subaru Outback. This is a simple DIY maintenance project that you’ll need to do every 1-2 years depending on your climate. Having good wipers is critical to safe driving in rainy weather.

We’re upgrading to new wiper blades from Bosch that are specifically designed for either Driver’s Side or Passenger’s Side of the front windshield. Our Subaru Outback uses the following 3 different wiper blade sizes:

• Drivers side front (26”) Bosch Icon 26A
• Passenger side front (19”) Bosch Icon 19B
• Rear window (14″) Bosch H 354

Had a the driver-side wiper fly off so I pulled over to move the passenger side one over. You really saved my drive home. Thanks!

Please don’t ever leave the wiper arm up like that with no blade on it. There is a lot of spring tension on that arm and if for some reason you bump it or touch it you’re going to be buying a new windshield. After you pull the old blade off you could gently lay the arm back on the windshield with no harm.

Thanks, I can change the blades no problem but I couldn't find the size anywhere in the manuals.

Thank you for posting. Every car I've owned had a different system which required me to review videos like this, or just fly by the seat of my pants. I have very little patience with myself, so even simple stuff like replacing wiper blades eventually gives me reason to start cursing at inanimate objects. After watching how you did it, I got the job done pretty quickly. And then I replaced the oil struts on my lift gate. What fun that was . . . NOT!

I am old but love watching how to do things, thank you for posting. I went to Auto Zone, asked them to install blades they did it for nothing. Wonder if Walmart will do the same? After watching this I could have done it. Thank you.
