2011 CR-V Rear Wiper
Pull Off Plastic Cover
Cap Removed From Base
This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the third generation (2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 & 2011) Honda CR-V in changing the rear windshield window wiper blade on the tail gate door.

Owners of other Honda or Acura SUV, minivan or hatchback vehicles with similar rear window wiper assemblies such as the Pilot, Insight, CR-Z, Fit, Crosstour, Odyssey, TSX Sport Wagon, RDX and MDX may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

A few compatible replacement size 14" (inches) rear window wiper blades with their part numbers include the following: Trico 14-B, Anco AR-14B, Valeo R14G, Bosch H354, Michelin # 9514 and Silblade RB114-B.

No tools are needed to change the rear wiper blade.

Lift Arm Off Window
Rotate Blade Away From Arm
Pop Bar Out of Socket
The first step is to gently pull off the plastic cover at the base of the wiper arm.

Set the cover aside in a safe place.

Then lift the wiper arm off the rear window until it stays in the raised position by itself.

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

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

Mounting Bar - Center of Blade
Once you have the old wiper blade removed, you'll see that there are two openings at the center of the blade surrounding the mounting bar.

One opening is completely clear of obstructions and the other one has two small pegs or "nubs" that slide in to the indentations on the sides of the wiper arm.


Line Up Bar & Socket
Slide Arm Through Blade
Push Bar In To Socket
I recommend buying the Trico 14-B rear wiper blade since it has excellent reviews on Amazon.

Line up the mounting bar at the center of the new blade with the "C" socket at the end of the wiper arm.

Slide the end of the wiper arm through the opening in the new blade that doesn't have the mounting pegs.

Rotate the blade towards the wiper arm and gently pop the mounting bar in to the "C" socket.

New Blade Mounted To Arm
Rotate Blade Parallel To Arm
Rotate the new wiper blade until it is parallel with the wiper arm.
Lower Blade To Window
Line Up Plastic End Cap
Snap Cover In Place
Lower the wiper arm back down to the window.

For best wiper performance, thoroughly clean off the window and apply a glass treatment product such as Rain-X or Zaino Glass Polish.
