Get Your Wipers Right

As a retired air traffic controller I think I have a very high level of spatial awareness, but there is one simple task that always blows my mind, even though I have done it many times, and that is replacing windscreen wiper blades. If I am not meticulously careful I manage to put them on upside down or back to front, so here is an AA video to help you if you have the same problem.

One additional tip is that when you have removed the old blade, carefully put it down on the (protected) bonnet exactly as it came off and then match the orientation of the new blade to the old one.

I just changed mine and the improvement is amazing, even though there was no apparent wear to the blades. The cheapest source of genuine Mazda wipers is, as usual, MX5Parts. Click on the logo:
