2014 Compass Rear Wiper
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, 2016 and the early 2017 Jeep Compass in changing the rear wiper blade on the back windshield window. (The all-new 2nd generation Compass arrived in mid to late 2017.)

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.

Black Plastic Release Tab
Press In Release Tab
Gently raise the rear wiper arm off the back window.

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

Press in and hold the black plastic release tab against the wiper arm.

Slide Bracket Out of Hook
Old Blade Off Metal Hook
Slide the plastic bracket in the center of the old wiper blade out of the hook at the end of the wiper arm.

Separate the old wiper blade from the wiper arm.


Line Up New Blade & Hook
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.

New Blade Secured In 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.
