L494 Wiper Blade replacement.

As per the title - anybody got any advice on changing the wiper blades on the RRS L494 - I've tried everywhere - YouTube - searched on here & even Topix but no joy ;(
The Sports currently fitted with the OEM blades & I've discovered the maintainance mode to enable the blades to be positioned ready for replacement.


Thanks in advance Thumbs Up 14MY Autobiography Dynamic - SDV6 - Fuji White Smile

Look at the new ones & how they go on then that will give you idea of how old ones come off.if that fails nip it round to mine in the morning & I’ll change them for you.

Remember to put the wipers to the winter park position before even attempting to lift the arms off the screen otherwise you will damage the paint on the trailing edge of the bonnet - the wiper I have not yet found out how to change is the rear blade 2018 Melting Silver Mini Countryman PHEV - a test car before Seeing if I could go to totally Petrol/Diesel free motoring

Hi,
Let us know when you sus it out ?
Used the winter wiper position couple of days ago to clean the screen and front blades

Did wonder how to check the rear blade? No park position for that unless it’s old school, turn ign off halve way through the sweep??? Corris HSE Dynamic 2016

Always pick up stick in the middle !!

This will allow access to the rear blade - it's an ewoke but works the same on the Sport Thumbs Up

Cannot get my L494 rear wiper to do what is demonstrated in the video - looks like a visit to the dealer will be required when it is time to change that one. 2018 Melting Silver Mini Countryman PHEV - a test car before Seeing if I could go to totally Petrol/Diesel free motoring

Have you tried switching wiper on to continuous mode and then opening boot but timing it so wiper will stop in mid sweep? Worked that way for me.
