    Is there a site where I can find the size wiper blades that I need
    for my '01 CRV? Front and rear blades.

    And tips to change them would help me. I'm not quite sure I
    understand how to remove the old and add the MUCH needed 3 new

    Thank you all.

    Your friendly Honda dealer. The rubber refills are about $5 each, and work
    better an any aftermarket.

    Do you still have your Owner's Manual? It's all in there.

    luck with aftermarket.

    I find the ones the dealer sells last about twice as long as any of the
    aftermarket ones, including the more expensive Bosch & Rain X. If you just
    want to know the size, any place that sells wipers, including even Walmart,
    will have a chart that gives the lengths for virtually every car on the

    If you intend to change the whole thing, directions are on the box with the
    new ones.

    If you just get the rubber refills, grasp the rubber at the bottom end and
    pull. It will slide out. Then transfer the metal stiffeners to the new
    rubber and slide it back in the way it came out & pull it into the lock
    position at the bottom (sort of important as they'll fly off otherwise).

    carefully remove the metal stiffeners and remember which side of the
    insert they went into and which orientation (that is, which end was
    "up"), and BE SURE that you put them into the replacement inserts *the
    same way*.

    If you don't, you'll think something's wrong--because the bend in the
    stiffeners will be wrong, and they'll be pulling the rubber AWAY from
    the windshield.

    If the steel inserts are FLAT, it doesn't matter which way they go.

    If the inserts are CURVED,
    the DRIVER's side has the middle of the bow facing TOWARDS the glass;
    the PASSENGER's has the middle of the bow facing AWAY from the glass.

    The driver's side should appear to bend the wrong way (opposite the curve
    of the glass rather than following the curve) when that wiper is manually
    pulled away from the surface of the glass..
