To center the windshield wipers for easy removal, one should turn the wipers on, then off when they reach the center of the windshield. If the wiper blade is held in place with a pin mechanism, a small screwdriver is used to press the pin.
For easier wiper blade removal, car owners should lift the windshield wiper at an angle away from the windshield. When windshield wiper blades are held in place with a J-hook, the connector button is pushed, and the wiper blade is removed by pulling it through the J-shaped connector. The small plastic edge of the wiper, called a squeegee, can be removed and replaced as an alternative to replacing the entire wiper blade.
