Kia Sedona Windshield Wiper Systems

Kia Sedona windshield wiper systems are a safety feature design to make sure you can clearly see the road when faced with rain, sleet, snow, or debris. As such, keeping your minivans windshield wipers working properly must take priority. This is done with proper maintenance and timely repairs.

Why do Kia Sedona windshield wiper blades streak?

There are two common reasons your Kia wiper blades leave streaks. The first is due to the rubber on the existing blade is worn and no longer makes consistent contact with the windshield. This is easily resolved with the replacement of the blades. The second reason is due to the thickness of the material that has hit the windshield, which is too thick to just wipe away, such as mud or ice. The wiper blades need a little help to thin out the muck. This is why you have a spray option that will spritz the window with a cleaning fluid.

How do you change Kia Sedona windshield wipers?

To replace the Kia Sedonas windshield wipers, find the clip holding the blade onto the arm and flip it toward the arm. This will loosen the wiper and allow you to slide it out of the arm. Once the old wiper is free of the arm, hook the new blade into place and fasten the clip to secure it.

When should Sedona windshield wiper blades be changed?

On average, your Kia Sedona will need new windshield wiper blades every six months to a year. Signs that you are due for a new pair of wiper blades include:

  • The wipers make a chattering sound when crossing the windshield.
  • The blades leave streaks when it rains or snows.
  • The rubber on the windshield wipers splits, pulls away from the arm, or appears pitted or cracked.
  • The blades bow away from the vehicles glass surface instead of sitting snugly against it.
Why would a Kia autos wipers stop working?

If your Kia minivans wipers stop swiping, you may have an electrical problem, such as a bad fuse or your Sedonas wiper blade motor may need to be repaired. If the wiper blades are swiping but not clearing the window, you may have a bent wiper arm or the wiper blades may be worn and in need of replacement.

Are all Kia Sedona wipers the same size?

The size of Kia compatible wipers is dependent on the age of the vehicle. For example, the Sedonas made in 2002 through 2005 were equipped with front and back wipers. The front wipers measured 24 inches while the back measured 16 to 18 inches. Other Sedona models utilize 26-inch drivers side wipers and 18-inch passenger side wiper blades. To find out what size wiper blades you need for your Sedona, consult the owners manual or measure the blades on your vehicle.
