Now to begin our install we're going to start on the driver's side, bringing our wiper arm up into an easier, removable position. Tilt the wiper blade away from the wiper arm, exposing the locking tab that we can press on and slide down out of the J-style hook. Now we'll take the new wiper blade, line up the J-style lock with the wiper arm, slide it in position and lock it in place.

We'll start with the yellow end of the blue cable to go around the back side of the tire. We'll bring both ends of the blue cable up to the twelve o'clock position of the tire and hook the two ends together. We can then begin taking the tire chain and draping it around the tire.

Now for the inner side of the tire we'll take the hook and link and clip those together. Now to the outside of the tire we'll secure it with the silver hook and clip. Once you connect it to a link that is within plus or minus one link of the one that was used on the inside. To release any slack on the chains you're going to want to drive a little bit and then double check to make sure you don't need to tighten your chains again. This is an SAE Class S chain and tensioners are recommended.
