2004 WJ - rear wiper not sold in local stores

I need to replace the rear wiper blade on my 04 wj.
Napa and Advanced said they do not stock that blade. What size and type of blade do I need?!?!?!

Have a look here:

NOTE: All Grand Cherokee WJ models have two 12.20 inch windshield wiper blades with non-replaceable rubber elements (squeegees). The wiper blades cannot be adjusted or repaired. If faulty, worn, or damaged the entire wiper blade unit must be replaced.

That is what i am looking for...the entire wiper blade not just the rubber part.

Napa sold me an "Exact Fit 60-014-1" 14 inch wiper blade, which went on but did not lock in place. It is my understanding that the smaller hook on the rear wiper of this year does not accommodate most wipers. And most auto parts stores do not stock a replacement for it...

I got a 16 inch blade from advanced and I pulled the caps off the end of the blade, and trim it up and had to bend it so it would fit o n the back glass hatch properly.

I bought mine at the dealer... I think it was $11.00

No one else around here stocked it.

with a little creative prying, i managed to replace just the rubber element in mine with a universal replacement after not being able to find a full replacement at the parts store. works fine now.

After reading about the availability of replacement blades I tried to take mine off. I took the cap and bolt off, but the blade arm will not pull off. After the bolt is removed I find a flat washer on the of the arm. Is there something I am missing?

Resurrecting an old thread to avoid a duplicate post...

I need to replace my rear wiper blade and I would like to get something quality. Does any company make an aftermarket blade to replace the OEM rear wiper?

I am pretty sure I got my replacements at Meijer or Wal Mart. A 12" blade works.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, how do you have time to do it over.

The RainX summer blade (front) that is 12/13 inches also works. It has the correct clip to hold it on where-as the others don't.

Bought mine at the dealer as well. Heres a tip for the future. Due to its design a standard blade wont fit. When your old one wears out snap the plastic piece out that locks into the arm and just put it on the new blade.
