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.

I had to give up on this for fear of breaking the thing. I just pulled the old blade strip out from under the plastic arm and swapped in the new one. The old plastic arm is still attached as I never did get it out. That bolt didn't loosen anything that I could see and I didn't like the idea of tearing out more stuff just for a blade. Nissan really wanted us back to the dealer for these blades didn't they!

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.
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.

I think I'm scared from owning my last car a ford lol everything I touched on it just fell apart. Making me less confident about being too aggressive with this car just in case I break something.

Lifting feels like it'll break. I removed the nut but the wiper arm didn't seem to want to come away easily. For the sake of not doing damage I just pulled out the actual rubber blade and slid the new one in. Mine had to be replaced it was falling apart, was the original blade 2.5 years it'd been on.
