Most auto parts stores like Advanced Auto, O’Reillys, etc. will sell you the blades and they will install them for free.

I agree with Advance Auto Parts. You don't necessarily need to get Honda wiper blades. I actually like the wiper blades made by Trico better.

Bingo - Advance Auto. Good selection and a fast install by their worker - can't beat it. Join their rewards club and you may get a few bucks off.

What part of the windshield wiper needs to be replaced. Blades, arms, motor etc. That would make a difference as to where you would need to go.

You don’t need a car repair shop. If you go to any parts store and buy wipers they will come out and put them on for you. At least that has always been my experience

Go to any auto parts store. Has everyone above said they will put them on for free it takes 5 minutes. Don't forget to give them a tip five bucks or 10 bucks is a nice thing to do

that's right.... the girl who sells you the wipers will put them on for you. and give her a 10 dollar bill. I am sure she can use it, and you will feel good about doing it.....don't be a cheapskate like 90% of the people here

You don't need a var repair shop. If you go to one of the auto parts stores, and buy the replacements there, they usually will put them on. They are very easy to remove and replace. There are two auto parts stores on 466 over in the area and across from Walmart. There are others as well, just look up auto parts stores.

My grandson can put them on for you. He's twelve and has been doing it for two years. I'll bring him over. Ten bucks, please.

I use a product called Aquapel on my windshield. Apply it once a year and I almost never have to use my wipers. Any speed over 35 MPH the water just sheets of the glass. The harder the rain, the better it works. Clearer vision than using wipers. Under 35 MPH with a light rain use the wipers, but even at slow speeds the heavy rain just doesn’t hamper your vision.

Just replaced the blades on my 2014 Honda CR-V at Advanced Auto by 301 and 44. I absolutely love the new silicon blades and Advanced installed them for us in minutes.
