Michelin Stealth Wiper Blades Installation - 2013 Chevrolet Express Van

Today in the 2013 Chevrolet Express van we're going to install part number MCH8022 from Michelin. A couple things to know about the Stealth Wiper Blade is that the rounded shape keeps it aerodynamic, or prevents the wiper from being lifted by the wind. Also, the blade itself has a graphite coating that helps keep a quiet wiping action. To start off, go ahead and remove the original wiper blades. There's a small button right here that's typical that you push in or pull down to release it from the arm. Then we can install our new wiper blade.

There's a single button over here on the left hand side, it's a sensitivity button. There are seven different settings that basically tell the controller how aggressively you want the brakes applied. The two buttons over here on the right hand side are what adjust the power output going back to the trailer brakes.

We need to get the four flat down underneath, near the center of the hitch to tie in with the back side of our seven way plug. To do that, we'll first need to cut off the cover that's on the four way and then we're going to use an old section of airline tubing to help us route our four flat wiring down the rear channel here on the back corner of the van. We'll also have to go underneath the van and remove a panel to gain access. Just above this opening here there's a piece of plastic that blocks off access.

Now, we first need to remove this panel right here. To actually remove the panel, you'll stick the flathead screw driver on the trim panel removal tool underneath the bottom side and pry outward or towards the front of the vehicle.
