How to Install Rain-X Latitude Wiper Blades on a 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan

Today on this 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan we're going to do a test fit of part number RX5079282 from Rain-X. This is the latitude windshield wiper blade. To start off our test fit we're going to go ahead and remove the original wiper blade. There's a small tab we have to push then we can go ahead and slide it off the arm. Once we have the wiper blade away from the arm we can see that this is a J style. Now there are two kinds of J style arms.

The larger and a smaller one. This is the larger of the two. Before we install the new blade we have to install a new adapter for it. The original adapter is for the smaller J arm. To remove it is easy.

We'll just go ahead and flip ti up a little bit. We'll take a small screw driver run it through the set of holes, theres two of them, the smaller of the two. Then we're going to push back on the connector and it should pop off. Now we'll take our new universal adapter, line it up and then push it back into place. Sometimes you can do it with your fingers, you can also press down with the screwdriver to help snap it back into place.

Now we can go ahead and install onto the windshield wiper arm. We'll line up the arm with the attachment point and then slide it into place until it clicks. We're already finished with our drivers side let's go ahead and repeat the same process over on the passengers side. Now on this vehicle both are the same size so we'll need to of the same part number. Couple of other things to know about this windshield wiper blade that it is beam style which insures an even contact across the windshield.

It also has UV inhibitors in the blade itself to help protect it from the sunlight. It also has an aerodynamic shape to help keep the blade on the windshield while going down the road. With that, that will finish it for our test fit of part number RX5079282 from Rain-X. The latitude windshield wiper blade on our 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan.
