This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the fifth generation (2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and probably also the refreshed 2018 model year) Jeep Cherokee in changing the rear wiper blade on the back windshield window.

Owners of other Jeep, Dodge, Chrysler, Fiat and RAM vehicles such as the Compass, Renegade, Wrangler, Grand Cherokee, Patriot, 500, Town & Country, 200, 300, Pacifica, Challenger, Charger, Dart, Durango, Journey, Grand Caravan, RAM 1500, C/V Tradesman and ProMaster Van may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The OEM rear wiper blade size in inches is 14".

A few compatible replacement wiper blades with their part numbers are as follows: Trico 14-A, Anco AR-14A, Valeo R14H, Michelin 9514 and ACDelco 8-214A.

No tools are needed to remove the old wiper blade and install the new one.

Lift Wiper Arm Off Window
The first step is to gently pull off the cover on the base of the wiper arm.

The cover is hinged on the left (driver) side of the SUV.

Then lift the wiper arm off the back windshield until it remains in the raised position by itself.

Rotate the old wiper blade away from the wiper arm at a slight angle.

Continue rotating the wiper blade away from the wiper arm.

You will feel the mounting bar in the center of the old wiper blade pop out of the "C" shaped socket at the end of the wiper arm.

"C" Shaped Socket
I recommend buying the Trico 14-A rear wiper blade since it has excellent reviews on Amazon.

Line up the new wiper blade with the wiper arm.

The rubber blade should be pointing away from the back window and towards the right (passenger) side of the vehicle.

Swing the cover closed over the mounting bolt and nut at the base of the wiper arm.

For the best wiper performance, thoroughly clean off the back window and apply a glass treatment product that repels water such as Rain-X.
