Back wiper blade on HB (2014 Note) I believe that all the Versa rear wiper blades are 12" but I could be wrong. The rear wiper rubber blade came apart and wanted to replace it. Kind of ran into a problem in that I could not get the old blade off the bracket. Saw a youtube video on how to snap it apart, but mine did not seem to want to come off and I did not want to break it. So I ended up finding a Trico 12B rear wiper ( 6mm width wiper blade insert) and removed the insert and installed in in the current wiper. I had to trim the the rubber part by about . 375" and used the original metal strips as it seemed to be about 2mm shorter and it would fit into the original holder. I am sure that I could have put the Trico 12B wiper blade on as a complete unit, but I just could not get the old blade off without breaking it.

Any suggestions or trick to get the blade on as one piece?

Tip for all the 2014+ Versa Note Hatchback owners:

To remove/replace the rear wiper blade off the arm, you indeed need to rotate the blade away from you, towards the passenger side. Though there is not enough clearance when the wiper arm is installed to allow the peg to 'unclip' off the arm.

Save yourself some time, gently remove the cap at the base of the arm, take a 10mm socket, remove the bolt. Then gently remove the entire rear wiper arm. Rotate the wiper blade away from the wiper arm assembly as usual.

You will find that the wiper blade falls off easily at an angle that is not able to be achieved when the arm is installed against the window hatch. When you resintall, you simply need to make sure the wiper arm is parallel to the ground/bottom of the window as before before tightening the bolt.

You can see it being done on this Nissan Cube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wKXcNL4xNNs Though, you really shouldn't need a bearing puller to remove the arm off the stem. You just need to apply counter pressure to the spring as you pull the arm up away from the stem.
