Rotate Away Old Wiper

This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the fourth generation (2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 & 2015) Hyundai Accent in changing the rear windshield window wiper blade.

Owners of other Hyundai or Kia SUV, minivan or hatchback vehicles such as the Tucson, Elantra, Lavita, Veracruz, Santa Fe, ix20, i20, ix35, Forte, Rio, Soul, Sedona, Sorento and Sportage may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The OEM rear window wiper blade size is 11 inches.

A few other compatible replacement 11" wiper blades with their part numbers are as follows: Trico 11-A, Valeo R11C, Denso 160-5511 and Goodyear # 728HYAC12R11A.

No tools are needed to replace the rear window wiper blade.

Mounting Bar - Center Blade
The first step is to lift the rear wiper blade off the back window until it remains in the raised position by itself.

Rotate the old wiper blade away from the wiper arm.

Continue rotating the old wiper blade away from the wiper arm until the mounting bar pops out of the "C" shaped socket.

Mounting Bar & Socket
I'd recommend buying the Trico 11-A wiper blade since it has the best reviews on Amazon.

Line up the mounting bar in the center of the new wiper blade with the "C" shaped socket at the end of the wiper arm.

Hold the new wiper blade near the wiper arm with the rubber blade facing away from the tailgate door.

Lower Wiper To Window
Push the mounting bar in to the socket.

Rotate the new wiper blade until it is parallel with the wiper arm.

Gently lower the wiper assembly down to the window.

For the best wiper performance, I'd recommend thoroughly cleaning off the rear windshield and applying a window treatment product such as Rain-X or Zaino Bros Glass Polish.
