2008 Odyssey Rear Wiper
Raise Wiper Arm Off Window
This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the third generation (2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 & 2010) Honda Odyssey minivan in changing the rear wiper blade on the back windshield window.

Owners of other Honda or Acura vehicles such as the Accord, Civic, Crosstour, CR-V, CR-Z, HR-V, Fit, Element, Insight, Pilot, Ridgeline, Clarity, Crosstour, Elysion, ILX, TSX, TLX, TL, RLX, RDX, NSX and MDX may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The OEM rear wiper blade size in inches is 16".

A few compatible replacement rear wiper blades with their part numbers are as follows: ANCO AR-16B, Michelin 9516, Valeo R16E, Trico Exact Fit 16-B and Bosch H410.

No tools are needed to remove and replace the wiper blade.

Rotate Away Old Blade
Pop Bar Out of Socket
The first step is to lift the rear wiper arm off the back windshield window.

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

Continue rotating the old wiper blade until it is almost perpendicular with the wiper arm.

Gently pop the mounting bar in the center of the old wiper blade out of the "C" shaped socket

Pull Blade Off Arm
Old Blade Removed
Pull the old wiper blade off the end of the wiper arm and away from the minivan.
"C" Shaped Socket
Mounting Bar - Center Blade
You'll notice that their is a "C" shaped socket at the end of the wiper arm.

There is also a black plastic mounting bar in the center of the old wiper blade.

I recommend buying the ANCO AR-16B replacement rear wiper blade since it has excellent reviews from other Odyssey owners on Amazon.


Line Up New Wiper Blade
Pass Arm Through Blade
Line up the new wiper blade with the wiper arm.

The rubber blade should be pointing out away from the rear of the vehicle.

Pass the end of the wiper arm through the upper opening in the middle of the new wiper blade.

Pop Bar Into Socket
Rotate Blade Parallel
Rotate the new wiper blade towards the wiper arm.

Line up the mounting bar with the "C" shaped socket.

Firmly snap the mounting bar in the middle of the new wiper blade into the socket at the end of the wiper arm.

Continue rotating the new wiper blade until it is parallel with the wiper arm.

Lower Blade To Window
Rear Wiper Blade Replaced
Gently lower the wiper blade and arm to the back windshield window.

For the best wiper performance, I recommend thoroughly cleaning off the window and applying a glass treatment product that will repel water such as Rain-X.
