Replace rear windshield wiper

Can anyone tell me how to replace the rear windshield wiper on a 1997 toyota 4runner? Looked in the owners manuel, which wasn't help. Wal-Mart said they couldn't change it only a dealer could. I just purchased this vehicle last year and it appears that this may be the original wiper. Please help, this has become very frustrating.

I had the same problem and using the recommendations above tried to slide the old wiper off and use the 13" blade but it was too short. I took the wiper and arm to Kragen and showed them how they sold me the 13" but it was too shirt for the arm and they apologized saying it took a 14. The guy said inside is bracket that fits on your wiper arm, I said I don't think so Ive heard its a custom part and he said he would go put it on for me. By the time I was dome paying the difference between the 2 wipers he walked back in and said all done and it works perfect entire new wiper not just the blade so for $14 just drive your 4Runner down and swear to them it cant be done.

I had the same problem w/ my 4Runner 2003, It as custom built. So, I slid out the 12"wiper blades, then replaced it manually with 12" inserts. Worked like a charm, hope this helps!

I took it to a mechanis, who is a friend of mine. Toyota made that rear windshield wiper custom. So he took off the stopper and the screw in lock and I bought a 13" blade and we put the attachment on that came wih the wiper and slid it on to the arm.

1995 Toyota 4 Runner rear window will not open, on


check to make sure that the wiper is not stuck in the window seal. Pull it out if it is and then try. The window will not roll down if the wiper is in that position.

97 toyota 4runner liftgate will not defrost,window will not open, wiper will not work


If the wiper and defroster and window arent running I would guess that there isnt any power going to the rear liftgate. Check the fuses for each and replace if they have blown. Another idea: the wires leading to the liftgate may have become pinched or shorted. If you can inspect the wires from the car into the liftgate (it would be best to remove the liftgate case and examine liftgate internals)

Windshield wiper


1) listen if windshield wiper motor is turning when switched on. The motor is under hood up near firewall.
If no noise and fuses are OK, motor may need replacement.

2) If motor can be heard whirring, then maybe the plastic link between the motor shaft and the wiper arm assy has worn or broken. (A very cheap part). This can be accessed by removing cowling or vents in front of windshield. This is a common failure.
