Lift Wiper Off Back Window

This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the refreshed, "revised" or "facelifted" first generation 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 & 2015 Jeep Compass in changing the rear wiper blade on the back windshield window.

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

The rear window wiper blade is 11" (inches) in size. (If necessary, you may also be able to some 10" or 12" blades.)

A few compatible replacement 11" wiper blades with their part numbers are as follows: Anco 31-11, Trico 15-110, ACDelco 8-111, Valeo 60011, Bosch 40711, Silblade WB111S, Michelin # 3711, and ClearPlus 20111.

No tools are needed to change the rear wiper blade.

Slide Bracket In To Hook
I recommend buying the Anco 31-11 rear wiper blade since it has great reviews on Amazon.

Slide the plastic mounting bracket in the middle of the new wiper blade in to the metal hook at the end of the wiper arm.

The bracket should "click" securely in to place.

Lower Wiper Arm To Glass
Double check that the new wiper blade is properly installed.

Lower the wiper arm down to the glass.

For the best wiper performance, I'd recommend thoroughly cleaning the back window and applying a glass treatment product such as Rain-X.
