Replacing Wiper Blades On Tesla Model 3

For optimum performance, replace the wiper blades at least once a year.
Note: Only install replacement blades that are identical to the original blades. Using inappropriate blades can damage the wiper system and windshield.

To replace the wiper blades:



  • Shift into Park and turn off the wipers.
  • Touch 'Controls' > 'Service' > 'Wiper Service Mode' > 'ON' to move the wipers to the service position.
  • Lift the wiper arm a short distance away from the windshield, just far enough to access the wiper blade.
    Caution: Wiper blades do not lock into a lifted position. Do not lift a wiper arm beyond its intended position.
  • Place a towel under the wiper arm to avoid scratching or cracking the windshield in case it lowers down for any reason.
  • Hold the wiper arm and press the locking tab while sliding the blade down the arm.
  • Align the new blade on the wiper arm and slide it toward the hooked end of the arm until it locks into place.
  • Carefully place the wiper blades against the windshield.
  • Turn Wiper Service Mode off to return the wipers to their normal position.
