I agree with the other solution listed here - avoid "refills" and replace the entire windshield wiper blade. The difference is only a few dollars and you'll save that 10-fold in time and headaches. Note that you can lookup the correct wipers (length and attachement) in an application guide at the store or online (try googling lookup wiper size). With the correct blades, install is literally a 2-15 minute task and normally does not require tools. If your existing blades are conventional wiper blades with frames, take a serious look at flat/frameless/beam blades this time around - they perform much better.

My advice is to forget changing the rubber. Just buy a complete wiper blade minus the arm. This way although you will spend a little more but avoid the hassle and get an entirely new blade. If you buy a quality blade you will only need to replace it once a year or every other year if the car is kept in a garage. I have been using the Rain X Latitude wiper blade and have found it to be a fantastic blade. After 1 year of use it is as good as the day it was installed. Most blades especially rubber blades start to deteriorate after 6 months. Whatever you buy make sure it is made of silicone and not rubber.

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.

How do i change the rubber on windshield wiper on driverside on a fusion 2008?


Some wiper carriers are no longer designed to allow for a change of the rubber wiper only and you may need to buy the carrier with the new rubber blade already installed.

How do i change the blades on my G6


change the entire blade (not just the rubber). Rain-ex Latitude wipers have the fitting that matches the G6 connector type. Michelin too. To remove the blades, there are two tabs to press inward at the center of each blade. Press them while pulling the bottom of the blade outwards. The wipers are about $12.00ea at Walmart

How to remove and replace the wiper blades on an 06 Murano


Me again. After looking at the blade for 15 minutes or so I did the following. Remove the wiper blade from vehicle (makes it easier to work on). There is a little tab under the blade near the end of the wiper blade arm. Press it and slide/pull the wiper blade toward you. Now when you look at the wiper it seems like its a sealed unit. Check the ends and you will see the rubber is flexibe enough to allow you to slid the "wiper" out ot the blade. You can get the replacement refill (the wiper) or a replacement wiper blade (the whole unit) from the Nissan dealer. Take the refill and slide into the blade assembly. Take your time. You might have to straighten the blade a little so that the refile lines up with the holding tabs in the blade. Looks impossible, but once you've done it you'll be surprised how simple it was to do......****

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.
