    Can anyone describe how to replace the rear wiper blade? Seems pretty tight and if I pull any harder I'm sure I'll bust something...

    As far as I am aware its just a pull out jobbie. If you're worried about busting anything why not remove the rear wiper from the car to give you a bit better leaverage?

    Hope this helps!

    There are two retaining clips in the centre of the blade. These need releasing with a screwdriver and then the blade just pulls off. When installing the new blade make sure that there is an audible 'click' which indicates the new blade is fastened in place properly. Good luck !
