oh ok i found the correct blades at pepboys, but you have to get the ones designed for the "rear" since they use a different clasp than the standardized clasp used on the front wipers. stock the 2nd gens use a 12 inch rear wiper blade, but it will fit a much bigger one, i went with 14 inch.

Yep, the 2nd Gen has a goofy rear wiper mount. I'm only aware of either the dealer part, or the Trico Exact Fit Rear Wiper. You can go to the 14" without any issues. I just installed the Trico 14-B (fits a Murano).



The stock rear wiper (12") on top of the Trico 14-B (14"):

Yeah, the second gens have a strange rear wiper. A lot of us use the the blade from a Murano, which is 14" instead of the stock 12" but otherwise fits perfectly, and sweeps a little more real estate on the back glass.

i rigged it to run an 18" blade. put a screw with washers through the center hole in the wiper arm, nut to tighten it down so it won't slide out of the slot, new blade slides over the screw and a cap nut tightens that down. you have to make sure that the new blade has a center hole for the "pin-through" type arms. i also took a zip tie and tightened the spring on the arm since the 18" beam-type blade wants to push off the center. works great and i can see out the whole rear window
