Replacing Wiper Blades Tesla Model X

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.

Note: The wiper washing system is an integrated part of the wiper blades on Model X.

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.

  • Squeeze the two tabs to release the wiper blade from the wiper arm.

    Caution: The wiper blade is still connected to the washer hose and cannot be removed yet.

  • Place a towel between the wiper arm and windshield to avoid scratching or cracking the windshield.
  • Disconnect the washer hose from the wiper blade, taking care to avoid spilling any washer fluid.
  • Fully insert the washer hose onto the nipple of the new wiper blade.
  • Align the new wiper blade on the wiper arm and slide it toward the end of the wiper arm until it locks into place.
  • Turn Wiper Service Mode off to return the wipers to their normal position.
