Rear window wiper

The rear window wiper isn't working as well as it used to, but unfortunately it appears that it isn't as simple as swapping out the blade. The front wipers are showing as a 22" (driver) and 21" (passenger) at both AutoZone and Advance, but no entry for the rear.

Are we supposed to use just a refill on this (if so, what size?), or are we stuck with Mopar replacements?

Re: Rear window wiper

Rubbing alcohol tends to harden rubber, although one use shouldn't hurt if it's soaped right off afterward. Better is the liquid sold to clean fax/printer machine rollers.

Re: Rear window wiper

I've tried numerous rear wipers on my dad's durango and my liberty, they all sucked except for the mopar wiper. Pretty sure this applies to the WK2 as well. Chrysler always has weird rear wipers. It's mopar or nothing imo

Re: Rear window wiper

I've been wiping my blades with a paper towel soaked in windshield washer fluid. Seems to work in extending the life of the blades. The washer fluid gets rid of any oil, grease & dirt on the blades.
