This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the third generation (2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 & also 2016 in Canada) Dodge Durango SUV in changing the rear window wiper blade.

Owners of other Chrysler, Dodge and RAM minivan or SUV vehicles such as the Town & Country, Journey, Grand Caravan, and Ram C/V Tradesman may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The OEM back windshield wiper blade is 12 inches in size.

A few compatible new aftermarket replacement 12" wiper blades with their part numbers are as follows: Michelin 9512, Trico 12-A, Bosch H307, Anco AR-12A, Valeo R12E, ACDelco 8-212A and Denso 160-5512.

No tools are needed to replace the rear wiper blade.

Continue Rotating Old Blade
The first step is to gently open the hinged plastic cover or "cap" on the base of the wiper arm assembly.

Lift the wiper arm off the back window until it remains in the raised position by itself.

Rotate the old wiper blade away from the wiper arm.

I recommend buying the Michelin 9512 rear wiper blade since it has excellent reviews on Amazon.

Orientate the new wiper blade with the rubber blade facing out away from the rear window.

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.

Gently pop the mounting bar in to the "C" shaped socket.

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