Kit #: 7501F Installing Wiper Blades On Freelander 2002-2005, 6-Cylinder Gasoline, North American Specification
Hi I'm Doug, your tech support representative here at Atlantic British. And in this video we were going to just touch base on one of the kits that we have available for the 2002 to 2005 Freelander for the windshield Wiper blade replacement. Now this is mentioned under our maintenance and repair academy that we have listed on our website. You can go on the website and you can actual access and download this sheet. And this gives you not only the wiper blades, but all the other recommended services for your Freelander. Now this one in particular, this is the wiper blade kit. Our number is 7501F. Gives you a pair of front wiper blades. And gives you the rear wiper blade. Now you'll notice you'll see a difference on the 2 blades. 1 having this wing that helps add pressure on the blade down on the windshield. This is for the driver side. And you'll get the passenger side wiper and a rear wiper as well. And this rear wiper is one that is often neglected. A lot of people will just change the fronts and never change the rears. I've actually seen them come in to my shop where they were literally missing the entire blade they were so worn out. When it comes down to you really need to be able to see out the back, you want that wiper working in good order. So, that's our kit. That's what we have available on our website. And I will now show you how to install one of the front wipers and the rear wiper. Alright, so as I showed you earlier in the introduction, the blade with the wing on it is for the driver side. And this wing essentially uses wind pressure, so as it climbs on the windshield, especially into the more curved area it applies a little bit more pressure so that it clears the windshield better. Now to replace this - and I, you'll see this in some of our other videos as well. Whenever we're doing these windshield wiper blades, always bring a mat, a cover a blanket. Anything to protect that windshield because you can pull these up. But should bump into it or move it out of place, once we take the blade off you've got a solid metal arm on the end of this. And this just can just snap down and you'll end up with a crack right up the middle of the windshield. So, just to cover yourself. And this is one of our fender cover that we have available actually on our website. You can get these in either red or black. These make a great cover, and as you can see I do use these quite a bit. They work very well. To take the blade off, underneath the base of the hook you'll feel a very small tab. You can see my finger pushing on it right there. You're simply going to depress that tab. And you need to pull in a downward motion to unhook the blade. Swing the blade out. Seated adaptor fell out. You're going to take your new blade. Make sure you orient the blade in the front. You're going to make sure that the clip is in place. And on the back side of that clip you'll see that tab right there. That's what this hook is going to lock on to so that this blade does not come off. We're going to place that like so. Slide this up. You'll actually hear it click into place. Take your cover off. And there you go. The operation is identical for the passenger side. You simply depress the tab. Snap the blade off. Slide the new blade on. Make sure it's locked in place. Again, when the blade is off the arm, make sure you have a cover protecting that windshield. Now we're going to move to the back and we'll show you how to replace the rear wiper blade. Alright, so, here's the rear blade. You can see, a little restrictive as far as how far you can pull that away from the back window. But actually, this is relatively easy. Now what I usually recommend on this case, and this one lines up with the rubber. But again, like I mentioned with the front, you never want to have the glass exposed when you're changing the wiper blade. You just don't need this arm to snap back. In this case, you can just lower the rear window. Fully opened it's down in the tailgate. Completely out of the way. You don't have to worry about the arm hitting it. Now these are simply just a pop out wiper blade. They snap in pretty tight. I usually find it's best to take a screw driver, place it right between the blade and the arm and the push on the forward part. They pop right out. And as you can see, there's no loop. There's no adaptor. There's just 2 small pins and they pop right into the arm itself. Now in the replacement kit, I believe you get the, you can get the insert that pops in there to hold this in case it breaks. So in most cases you don't need it. You can use the original, they hold very well. So just to reinstall it, you going to just simply look at the way this is configured. You can see how this bumps down. And this is going to be outward of the arm. And we'll just line up the pins with the slot. Fingers on both sides. And just press in. You can hear that pops in. It's a nice solid lock. So, that's your rear wiper. So again, this is recommended to do on a pretty regular basis. Wiper blades are a safety item. I know a lot of times they get neglected, but in a hard rain or snow you'll be glad you changed them over. So when you're ready to do so on your 2002 to 2005 Freelander, just call any of our knowledgeable salesmen at 1-800-533-2210. And thanks for watching.
