Bosch Icon Wiper

Just replaced the front with 22/21. Does Bosch make a size for the rear wiper blade? I have a 2015 Overland.

Give this website a look.

I typed in the specs for my 2014 GC Summit Ecodiesel and at the bottom of the page it lists part H307 as an OE Specialty Rear.

Re: Bosch Icon Wiper

They did not make one for the rear last time I checked. The selection is sparse, but there are a few brands out there. Nice choice in wiper, BTW. Its one of the few I can find that does an excellent job on keeping the WK2's windshield clear.

I don't buy anything else, and they last a really long time.

Re: Bosch Icon Wiper

I like the Icons, but find that with Minnesota winters no matter what wipers I get I am lucky if they last a year...


That rear window wiper is a hard one to find.

Re: Bosch Icon Wiper

Greetings,

I usually get my Bosch Icon's by winter time so that I have a fresh blades for the snow and ice. They take me right into the following year. Every couple of months i clean the blade off good.

Best for now.

Re: Bosch Icon Wiper

I bought the Icons for my windshield right after I bought my 2013 JGC Overland. I had to settle for an off brand rear wiper.

I thought replacing the wipers every 6 to 12 months was what everyone did up here (or should do). The winters do a number on them.

Re: Bosch Icon Wiper

Rear wiper
Sliblade
Longest Lasting Windshield Wiper Blades | SilBlade
RB112-A

Amazon usually has them.

MN winters (with all the road salt) are tough on wipers.
One thing I do occasionally is use some alcohol wipes to clean off the blades. You would be surprised at how much crud comes off and how well it improves the wiping action of the blade.

Re: Bosch Icon Wiper

Whatever brand you decide to buy make sure it's the right size. Everyplace I look it says rear blade 12A. It doesn't fit. It hits the tailgate brake light housing and gets stuck. The original one that came on the truck is 11". Hate having to make 2 trips to autozone.

Re: Bosch Icon Wiper

Re: Bosch Icon Wiper

I'm a big fan of the Bosch Icons. My last two Libertys had them and eventually, my '15 GC will have them too. My first Liberty was an 02, bought it when they first came out. When it was time to replace the wiper, the only place I could get one was the dealer. Eventually the size made it's way to my local AutoZone. The '11 Liberty I didn't have too long, but easily found a replacement for it. It seems as though the rear wiper choices are very limited. I wish Bosch made the Icon for the rear, it makes me wonder why they don't.
