Hyundai Tucson: Wiper blades

Hyundai Tucson - Fourth generation (NX4) - (2020-2023) - Owner's Manual / Maintenance / Wiper blades

Blade inspection

Contamination of either the windshield or the wiper blades with foreign matter can reduce the effectiveness of the windshield wipers.

Common sources of contamination are insects, tree sap, and hot wax treatments used by some commercial car washes. If the blades are not wiping properly, clean both the window and the blades with a good cleaner or mild detergent, and rinse thoroughly with clean water.


To prevent damage to the wiper blades, arms or other components, do not:

  • Use gasoline, kerosene, paint thinner, or other solvents on or near them.
  • Attempt to move the wipers manually.
  •  Use non-specified wiper blades.


Commercial hot waxes applied by automatic car washes have been known to make the windshield difficult to clean.


Wiper blades are consumable items.

Normal wear of the wipers may not be covered by your vehicle warranty.

Blade replacement

When the wipers no longer clean adequately, the blades may be worn or cracked, and require replacement.


To prevent damage to the wiper arms or other components, do not attempt to move the wipers manually.


The use of a non-specified wiper blade could result in wiper malfunction and failure.


  • In order to prevent damage to the hood and the wiper arms, the wiper arms should only be lifted when in the top wiping position.
  • Always return the wiper arms to the windshield before driving.

  • The wiper could not operate for approx. 10 seconds when the wiper is operated without washer fluid or the blades are frozen. This is not a malfunction, it is a wiper protection system activated by motor overload circuit within the wiper motor.
  • The front windshield should be cleaned with water hose and wiped with clean towel with wiper blades raised up. Also, the wiper blades should be wiped clean when the grease or wax is applied to the blades.
