Rear wiper blades

This may be easy but in order to replace my rear wiper blade do I need to unscrew the whole blade and arm off or is there an easy way to do this that I am not seeing?

No...blade comes off end of arm... If in doubt, most "supermarket" style parts outlets will put it on for free.

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

Replace rear wiper assembly


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.

How to replace rear wiper on a 2005 Pontiac Vibe?


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!

    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. 99fe16e.jpg 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.

    2000 Honda Odyssey rear wiper motor replacement


    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.
