The rear window wiper blade is 11" (inches) in size.
No tools are needed to change the rear wiper blade.
Lift Wiper Arm Off Window
Rotate Blade At Angle
Pop Off Old Wiper Blade
|The first step is
pull the plastic cover off the base of the wiper arm.
Set the plastic cover aside in a safe place.
Lift the wiper arm off the rear window 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 old wiper blade until you can pop the mounting bar in the center of the blade out of the "C" socket at the end of the wiper arm.
Mounting Bar & "C" Socket
"C" Socket - End of Wiper Arm
Mounting Bar - Center Blade
|I recommend buying
the Trico 11-A rear wiper blade
since it has excellent reviews on Amazon.
Line up the mounting bar in the center of the new wiper blade with the "C" socket at the end of the wiper arm.
Line Up Bar & "C" Socket
Pop Bar In To "C" Socket
Rotate Blade Parallel To Arm
|Firmly pop the
mounting bar in to the "C" socket.
Rotate the new wiper blade until it is parallel with the wiper arm.
New Blade Installed
Lower Arm To Window
Replace Plastic Cover On Base
|Gently lower the
wiper arm back down to the rear window.
For the best wiper performance, I'd recommend thoroughly cleaning off the rear windshield and applying a window treatment product such as Rain-X or Zaino Glass Polish.
