Hyundai Santa Cruz: Wiper Blades / Blade Replacement

When the wipers no longer clean adequately, the blades may be worn or cracked, and require replacement.

NOTICE

  • In order to prevent damage to the hood and the wiper arms, the wiper arms should only be lifted when in the top wiping position.
  • Always return the wiper arms to the windshield before driving.

Front windshield wiper service positions

This vehicle has a “hidden” wiper design which means that the wipers cannot be lifted when they are in their bottom resting position.

1. Within 20 seconds of turning off the engine, lift and hold the wiper lever up to the MIST position for about 2 seconds until the wipers move to the top wipe position.

2. At this time you can lift the wipers off the windshield.

3. Gently put the wipers back down onto the windshield.

4. Turn the wipers to any ON position to return the wipers to the bottom resting position.

Type A

1. Lift up the wiper blade clip. Then lift up the wiper blade.

2. While pushing the lock (1), pull down the wiper blade (2).

3. Remove the wiper blade from the wiper arm.

4. Install a new wiper blade assembly in the reverse order of removal.

5. Return the wiper arm on the windshield.

Type B

1. Raise the wiper arm.

2. Lift up the wiper blade clip. Then pull down the blade assembly and remove it.

3. Install the new blade assembly in the reverse order of removal.

4. Return the wiper arm on the windshield.

CAUTION

If the wiper arm receives too much force while pulling the blade, the center part may be damaged.

CAUTION

  • The wiper could not operate for approx. 10 seconds when the wiper is operated without washer fluid or the blades are frozen. This is not a malfunction, it is a wiper protection system activated by motor overload circuit within the wiper motor.
  • The front windshield should be cleaned with water hose and wiped with clean towel with wiper blades raised up. Also, the wiper blades should be wiped clean when the grease or wax is applied to the blades.
