For safe driving in rainy or snowy weather, your Toyota Camry windshield wiper blades need to be in excellent shape. While sometimes you may need to replace the metal wiper blade assembly, more often than not you only need to replace the rubber wiper blade inserts.

Before you replace your Toyota Camry windshield wiper blade assembly or wiper blade inserts, you will need to know if your Camry was manufactured in Japan or North America. There are two ways to tell. First, you can check the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) of your Camry. If the VIN of your Toyota Camry begins with the letter "J", for example "JT2SV2 . . ." your Camry was imported from Japan. A North American produced Toyota Camry will have a VIN beginning with the numeral "4".
