This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the 1st generation (2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 & 2014) Dodge Journey SUV in changing the rear windshield window wiper blade.

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

A replacement rear wiper blade is 12" (inches) in size. Two compatible aftermarket replacement blades with their part numbers are the Trico 12-A Exact Fit and the Anco AR-12A.

No tools are needed to change the wiper blade. For best results, it would be a good idea to gather some glass cleaner, a clean towel and a window treatment product such as Rain-X.

Pop Out Mounting Bar
The first step is to gently pop off the plastic cover on the base of the wiper arm.

Open the hinged cover by swinging it down and away from the wiper arm.

Then pull the wiper arm off the rear window until it stays in that position by itself.

Rotate the wiper blade away from the wiper arm at an angle.

Line Up Bar & Socket
Continue rotating the wiper blade away from the wiper arm while also pulling until it pops off.

I recommend buying the Trico 12-A rear wiper blade since it has great reviews on Amazon.

To install the new wiper blade, line up the mounting bar in the center of the blade with the "C" shaped socket at the end of the wiper arm.
