This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the 3rd generation (2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and maybe also the refreshed 2017 model year) Ford Escape SUV in changing the rear wiper blade on the back windshield window.

Owners of other Ford or Lincoln vehicles such as the Focus, Fusion, C-Max, Mustang, Fiesta, Transit Connect, Edge, Flex, Explorer, Expedition, Taurus, F-150, EcoSport, MKC, MKZ, MKS, MKX, MKT and the Navigator may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The OEM rear wiper blade size is 11" inches.

A few compatible replacement blades with their part numbers are as follows: Ford BB5Z-17528-A, Motorcraft WW-1106 and Trico 11-G.

No tools are needed to replace the rear wiper blade.

Wiper Arm - Plastic Bar
The first step is to gently pull off the black plastic cover on the base of the wiper arm.

Set the base cap aside in a safe place.

Lift the rear wiper arm off the window to expose the old blade.

Place a few fingers in between the wiper arm and the old blade near the middle of the assembly.

Firmly push the old blade towards the window to pop the mounting bracket on the blade off the plastic bar on the back side of the wiper arm.

Wiper Blade Replaced
Double check that the new wiper blade is securely attached to the wiper arm.

Gently lower the wiper arm down to the window.

Pop the plastic cap over the base of the wiper arm.

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 Brothers Glass Polish.
