HOW TO: Rear Windshield Wiper Replacement

Anyone out there figure out how to pivot the rear windshield wiper blade?

I'm usually pretty good at figuring out these type of things but I don't want to break it.

The issue is, that when I try to lift the arm, the rear wiper only swings up off the window about 1/2-inch.

It's difficult to even wash under it because I can't lift it up.

Thanks

Re: Rear Windshield Wiper

I just replaced all the blades this week. The rear wiper pulls off to the right. That would be a cleaning method, easy removal, better than the ¼ - ½" lift away from the body.

So the blade itself slides off to the right, or the whole assembly? Been wondering my self, but never really spent time with it yet.

Re: Rear Windshield Wiper

Pull the wiper arm about 1/2" towards the sky then you can hinge it out towards you. Works great for washing.

So it does. There's a midpoint catch that engages when the thing's electrically off.

Bravo - just the blade itself is replaced. The method becomes obvious when you buy the new blade.

[The 18" Mopar front blades were $8.61 ea, the 13½" rear was $14.33. Go figure.]

Changing Rear Wiper Blade

I have an 06 Commander and am changing the wiper blades. Got to the rear and it looks like an armadillo. How do you change the blade on the back?
