To begin with we will need to remove the original wiper blades. This particular car has the J-hook style wiper arms. So to remove the original wiper blades we will go ahead and squeeze the tab here and lift up on the top of the wiper blade itself. Once we lift up on the top of the tab it will allow you to slide the wiper blade off of the J-hook. Once we have the original wiper blade off we will be able to take our new Rain-X wiper blade and slide it over the J-hook gently pulling it into place until you hear it click. Once you hear it click that ensures that the new wiper blade is fully locked onto your wiper arm. The Rain-X latitude is an all weather windshield wiper blade that gives you superior visibility in the rain, snow as well as sleet. The contour beam style frame allows it to apply uniform pressure across the entire length of the blade thus ensuring even wear along the blade as well as giving you a streak free wipe. The blade is integrated with UV inhibitors that help it stand up to the harsh effects of sunlight. It also has an aerodynamic design which helps reduce wind drag, noise and lift at high speeds. With that that will conclude our installation of the Rain-X latitude wiper blades and the 26 inch for the drivers side part number Rx50792981 as well as for the passenger side in an 18 inch part number Rx5079275 on our 2007 Toyota Prius.
