    How Do I Replace the Rear Wiper Blade?

    I would like to remove and replace the rear wiper blade. Not a single parts store lists the size. Should I ever find a blade, how do I remove it from the van? 2009 GC SXT

    Thanks.

    How many miles / kms? Because of you are under 1 yr and a certain mileage I think it can be changed under the "Adjustments" warranty.

    I am not sure, but if you complain that it is crap, then they may change it out. FWIW, I am still running on my OE rear (and front) wipers since I got the van in Dec of 2008, and we get lots of snow, mud and road crap up here.

    The van is an early 09. The rear has a tendency to smear. I was just going to replace it instead of going back to the dealer.

    You shouldn't need a new blade yet. Try taking some w/s washer fluid on a paper towel and wipe the rubber. Also, give the glass a thorough cleaning. You may have some oil that kicked up on the glass. Or. if you went through a car wash, they may have applied some spray wax which will also smear your glass with the blade.

    What I plan to do with my Quest is leave the blade and just put in a refill (the skinny, rubber part) rather than the blade (the plastic and the rubber together), because it is the "streamlined" style, just like on the 5th gen Chrysler/Dodge. I have learned that it takes a 14 inch refill. I don't know the size for these vans, but you could probably figure it out with a measuring tape.

    Thanks for all of the advice. I might still want to take it off in the future if anybody knows how.

    Wiper are "snaps" onto blade...Put hand between blade and arm, carefully apply leverage and blade will snap off...
