Does anyone know how the rear wiper blade should be replaced without breaking it? I can't see any other way to remove it short of removing the bolt and arm? The arm does not lift up like the front wipers do.
How did you get it out? When I pull my rear wiper blade arm forward it only goes so far before it stops. Pulling it further it creaks and felt like it'd break if I kept pulling it. However I have had the rear hatch replaced so who knows maybe someone over tightened something when they put everything back together.A couple of days ago after reading this post i tried taking mine out and it came out very easily. Similar to changing out a front wiper.
That's exactly what I had to do! I had to give up in the end and just put the rubber blade in leaving everything else as it was. It shouldn't be this hard to replace you'd think?I changed mine, and I had the same problem. So I took out the insert and swapped it with one from autozone.
