What Size Windshield Wipers do I Need for Ford Ranger?

It is of paramount importance that you replace your worn out wipers with new blades with the same dimensions. By doing that, you’ll ensure that they work properly and clean the windshield thoroughly.

In order to find the right dimensions, you can measure them with a measuring tape, or even better, check in the owner’s manual. The easiest way to check the dimensions of the blades on your Ford Ranger is to check on our website. Just be sure that you know the model year of your vehicle, and you are good to go.

Different Types of Wiper Blades

There are a lot of different wiper blades available on the market right now, which makes the task of choosing a good pair a bit difficult. That said, every wiper blade should be able to successfully clean your windshield from water, and some contaminants like bugs and dirt. However, some types of wiper blades do the job better than others. In order to fully understand all these types, you can check the most popular designs down below:

  • Frame-Style – these are the most popular choice due to their low price and easy fitment on most vehicles. Their design is unchanged from the first wiper blades, but still good enough for most people, especially for cleaning water and contaminants. However, they are not as effective at higher speeds;
  • Beam-Style – made from one piece of rubber or silicone, these wiper blades clean the windshield even better than frame-style blades and are much more effective at higher speeds due to their aerodynamic design. However, they are more expensive as well;
  • Winter wiper blades – equipped with additional rubber shell, these blades work much better at lower temperatures and when it’s snowing;
  • Heated wiper blades – the best option for areas with chilling winters, but their price is higher. Installation is also much more difficult.

Some manufacturers have their own proprietary tech that should do an even better job of cleaning your windshield, but those can be even more expensive.

How to Replace the Wipers on Ford Ranger?

Replacing the wipers on your Ford Ranger consists of few simple steps (applicable to all wipers):

  • For easier removal, turn your vehicle to “ON”, then turn the wipers and turn off the vehicle when they are in their most vertical position;
  • Pull the wipers up until they are held in place;
  • The wiper is held in place by a “U” shaped handle and a tiny clip. Push the clip and slide the blade downwards;
  • Pull until the blade completely comes off the handle and remove it carefully;
  • Slide the new wiper blade into the “U” shaped handle until it clicks in place.

Please note that this installation process is for the 2011 model year Ranger.

  • Some manufacturers nowadays offer high-tech wipers with different blade design for even more successful removal of dirt, bugs and road grime, but they tend to be expensive.
