This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the third generation (2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 & 2014) Chevrolet Tahoe in changing the rear windshield window wiper blade.

Owners of related General Motors full size SUV vehicles with similar rear wiper arms such as the Suburban, GMC Yukon, Yukon XL, Yukon Denali, Cadillac Escalade and Hummer H2 may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

A replacement rear wiper blade is 12" (inches) in size.

A few compatible replacement wiper blades with their part numbers include the following.: Michelin 9512, Anco AR-12E, Trico 12-E, ACDelco 8-212E, Rain-X 850006 R12E, Bosch H300 and Silblade RB112-E.

No tools are needed to replace the rear wiper blade. For the best results, I'd recommend using a window treatment product such as Rain-X or Zaino Glass Polish.

The first step is to gently pull off the plastic "C" shaped cover at the base of the wiper arm.

Set the end cap aside in a safe place.

Lift the center of the wiper arm out of the stop tab attached to the tailgate.

Then pull the wiper arm away from the tail gate.

Rotate the old wiper blade away from the wiper arm until it is almost perpendicular.

Line Up New Wiper Blade
Gently pop the mounting bar in the center of the old wiper blade out of the "C" shaped socket in the bracket at the end of the wiper arm.

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

Line up the hole in the center of the new wiper blade with the end of the wiper arm.

Lower the "stop tab" at the center of the wiper arm in to the slot in the bracket attached to the tail gate.

For the best results, thoroughly clean the rear window and apply a treatment product such as Rain-X or Zaino Bros Glass Polish.
