How to maintain your rear wiper blade on a Honda Jazz/fit

When trying to purchase rear wiper blade rubber replacement i could not find a listing for it,i also noticed that the replacement blades for the front needed only a couple more inches of length for the left hand side cutoff to be long enough to do the rear as well ,you would think the manufacturers could have given you that extra as a bonus. Anyway when replacing front wiper blades,as you should at least once a year,rotate the shorter blade to the rear wiper it is the same size, just pull the end of the rubber insert slightly bending it away from the frame and it will slide out,better than having a rubber that is perished hard,how many cars do you see with rear blades that are useless, maybe other makes might also benefit from this.

i need to replace the windshield wiper blade


The 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan takes 28" wiper blades on both sides front and a 18" rear wiper. See related links below for more information. Since there are over 22 different wiper arm attachments, do not buy wipers just by length only - be sure to lookup exact wiper blade part numbers by vehicle make, model and year for the brand wiper you decide to purchase. This ensures correct length AND correct attachment.

CHANGING REAR WIPER ON 2008 OUTLANDER


These are available at the dealership. There is one way though. You can get a 21" RAIN X wiper and i just cut it down to size. The grooves on a RAIN X will fit up to your rear wiper. As far as replacing it although it looks more difficult at first glance it it every bit as simple as the front wiper blades. It's a simple pop off. You can also just change rubber wiper and leave the actual blade alone. the rear is a mini blade style (this refers to the size of the rubber insert in the blade, not the actual whole blade being small.) You can replace the rubber using an Amcor blade or any "mini" blade. Puchase the biggest one they have, take out the rubber wiper and just cut to size. You can change the rubber many times off of one blade thus saving you a bunch of money.

rear wiper blade


I went to a Honda dealer and bought a replacement wiper blade (rubber part only) for about $6, and the guy in parts came outside and changed it for me. You slip off the rubber blade only from the wiper assembly and then slip in the new blade.
