Rear Wiper Blade
Anyone know how to remove the rear wiper blade? I have been trying to replace the original one with a new rear silblade, but I can't seem to find the release tab to get the old one off. Also has anyone bought a new rear blade from silblade? There site says I need a RB114-C, but it doesn't look like an exact match to the original one, just wondering if anyone else had some issues changing the blade?

Re: Rear Wiper Blade
I bought that blade and it is the wrong blade. To get the rear wiper off you need to rotate up the plastic cover at the base of the swing arm. the front of it snaps off and then it rotates up allowing you to rock the blade to a perpendicular angle to the window.

Yes rb114c as directed to fit on amazon and silblade is incorrect. After I sent pictures to silblade they said we need rb114a. It's in the mail and should be here tomorrow.

Contact and/or and explain you have a 2011 jeep and the rb114c doesn't match they should send you a rb114a!

Re: Rear Wiper Blade
A FYI- it's rb112a. Rb114a is too long it's a 12 inch blade oem not 14 inch.. The arm adapter A is correct however this time.

Re: Rear Wiper Blade
I still have not heard back from them... Did you buy the correct one or are they sending it to you for free?

Re: Rear Wiper Blade
I assume I'll have to send back the RB114-A they sent me that I received yesterday.. but didn't "pay" again for the correct RB112-A

Re: Rear Wiper Blade
So what ever happened did you guys get any resolution?

Re: Rear Wiper Blade
They sent me the correct one, RB-112A, at no charge. They were great to deal with, no issues with the new one.
