Fiat Punto: Blades

Fiat Punto Owners Manual

Periodically clean the rubber part using special products; TUTELA PROFESSIONAL SC 35 is recommended.

If the rubber blades are bent or worn they should be replaced. In any case they should be changed once a year.

A few simple notions can reduce the possibility of damage to the blades:

  • if the temperature fall below zero, make sure that ice has not frozen the rubber against glass. If necessary, thaw using an antifreeze product;
  • remove any snow from the glass: in addition to protecting the blades, this prevents effort on the motor and overheating;
  • do not operate the windscreen and rear window wipers on dry glass.
Driving with worn wiper
blades is a serious hazard, because visibility is reduced in bad weather.

Changing the windscreen wiper blades

Proceed as follows:

  • raise the windscreen wiper arm (A) and position the blade so that it forms an angle of 90В° with the arm;
  • press tab (B) of the coupling spring and remove the blade to be replaced from the arm (A);
  • fit the new blade by inserting the tab into the special slot in the arm.

    Make sure it is properly locked into place.
