You want to be sure to work on a nice clean surface to avoid any damage to the finish of your vehicle.

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.

WeatherTech Air Deflectors Reveiw - 2008 Toyota Prius

Today on this 2008 Toyota Prius we are going to install part number WT82357. Some of the features of the air deflectors are one, that they are designed to reduce noise and also allows ventilation for the vehicle itself even when it rains. They are easy to install inside the window channel with no exterior tape needed. It provides a low profile original equipment look. You want to begin with the window lowered and you can see how this edge will fit into the track just like that. I would like to start on that side and then going towards the front of the vehicle, just bow it into place. Make sure it fits into the track and then just bow it in. Make sure you follow the channel so it goes into place. It may help to flex it a little bit like this to get it in there. That slipped in just fine. 01:07

Today we are going to install part number 11468 from Curt and we are installing this on a 2007 Toyota Prius. First thing we need to do is take down this shield right here. This will come off and the hitch will go in the place where this tie down hook is. Once we take this shield off we can unbolt this hook and there is another hook on the passenger side that we need to take off also. The first thing we need to do is take down this shield here for now. We will end up trimming it when we put the hitch back up. Alright, next we will want to take down the tie down bracket. Now go do the same thing for the other side. Next we can go ahead and install the hitch onto the vehicle and you can actually put the passenger side over the exhaust and let you help hold it up while you do the driver side first. Once you have the hitch held up by a couple bolts, it is a good idea to go ahead and snug down the bolts to help you line up the hitch with the rest of the holes. Alright once you get your holes lined up, you will have to move around the hitch a little bit and get your last bolt on this side started. Go ahead and snug it up and then go back and do the remaining one on the driver side.
