Re: rear wiper blades
The best way is to have the wipers pointing up. turn the wiper switch on low with the key off, then turn the key on till the wipers point up then quickly turn the key back off. now you can pull the arm/blade away from the window (the wiper will be flopping around a little) at the end of the arm, the metal curves down to make a kind of hook. at the end of the hook is a little tab. push the tab in and this allows the wiper blade to slide off the hook. its off

The wiper arm has a cover on the left end that pops up after gently spreading the two bottom sides apart. That allows the arm to swing out for cleaning the window or replacing the blade. The wiper blade assembly attaches to the end of the arm . It is pressed in and will pop out with a little force rotating the left side away from the arm. It pops back in with a little push. The arm remains attached to the rotating shaft assembly. I believe you can then replace just the rubber blade and not the whole blade assembly, if that is your fancy. Dave
It's pretty easy, just get the wiper from your auto part store of choice/online (see: it may need to be ordered for you, or you'll get lucky and the store will have it in stock), then remove the plastic cover on top of the nut holding the wiper to the rear hatch. Unscrew the nut-- SAVE IT, you'll need it to ----> replace it with the new wiper blade. Put the blade on, rescrew the nut and *presto*, you're fini!
You will need a 13-inch wiper blade for the rear window. 1 - When removing the wiper blade lift the wiper arm away from the window. ----- 2 - With one hand holding the wiper arm press the small tab on the underside of the wiper blade where it meets the wiper arm. ----- 3 - Slide the wiper blade off of the arm by pulling the center toward the bottom of the arm.----- 4 - Lightly lay the wiper arm on the window.----- 5 - Prepare your new wiper blade by taking the curved part of the plastic clip and line it up with the curve of your wiper arm. ----- 6 - Lift the wiper arm and press it through the center of the wiper blade up and over the plastic clip. 7 - Pull the wiper blade up until it clicks. Place the arm back on the window.
Three things you can replace depend on your budet
1) you can replace whole wiper blabe assembly by lift up the cover at the bottom end of the bale assembly and un-screw the nut and raplace whole assembly with arm , wiper insert etc ... with the new one This way cost you more.

3) slide wiper blade insert out of the holder, becareful with 2 small steel blade will hole your rubber insert inside the wiper frame. Slide new rubber insert in the frame .
You can make use of following procedure to replace rear wiper in ur scion xd. Pull the rear wiper arm away from the rear window in order to access the wiper blade.
Locate the hinge where the blade mechanism meets the wiper
arm and squeeze the plastic tabs on the blade in order to release it
from its locked position on the arm. In some cases, instead of tabs,

Return the wiper arm to its set position. Before driving, wet

No removal of the arm is necessary. Typically, there will be a little lever on the wiper blade that will let the whole blade slide off the arm.
Sometimes you'll have to hold it down and give it a little hit to make it slide off. The new one will slide on and click in.

illustration where the meshing of the claw disengages with a clicking
sound. NOTE: Be careful not to break the claw.
Pull straight the rear wiper blade to vehicle's left from the wiper arm. NOTE: Do not fold the rear wiper arm with the rear wiper blade removed from it.

You are probably correct in thinking its the wiper motor. You can do this but you will need to remove all the interior trim from the rear hatch first. Get a trim clip removal tool at a parts store...it will work much better than just a flat blade screwdriver. You'll have to remove the trim panels starting in order from the top of the door, then the left rear window side trim, then right rear window side trim, then the grab handle, and finally the main rear hatch trim panel. Once inside, removing and replacing the rear wiper motor is easy. You'll start by lifting the cover on the wiper arm retention nut. Remove this nut to get the wiper arm off, then remove the nut under neath which is the motor shaft mounting nut. Now, back inside to remove the other 3 motor mounting bolts. Don't forget to disconnect the connector for the motor wires. Reverse steps to replace.
lift the wiper arm all the way up and out from the windshiled. hold the arm so it doesnt slam back down and crack the glass. rotate/spin the whole wiper blade 90 degrees, counter clockwise, and then pull the blade straight back off the wiper arm. install the new one in the opposite order
