Wiper Blade Question

Anyone know where to find a REAR wiper blade replacement or just the blade itself in the Metairie or New Orleans area? A worker at Autozone told me it's Dealer only but I don't believe that.
It's for a 2009 Jeep Patriot
thx

Is the dealer asking too much money, or you can't get there when they are open?

Try NAPA and see what they have to offer.

Funny you should ask....recently I called a friend who works there and he laughed when I told him autozone said they were dealer only. HE said he could get me one at "their" price if I couldn't find one so I just figured it was pricey.....but I am still curious as to why they'd be so unusual to find locally.

Since your reply, I've found that NAPA does have them online for about $9-10, a little pricey for a 10" blade but I'm sure cheaper than Chrysler.

thx for your help.

RockAuto.com has them starting at $2.55 for the Anco blade.

I got mine from NAPA but I went with the next size longer and cut off about 1/2" on the top end so it didn't rub on the spoiler thingy.

I bought a 21 inch wiper refill, cut it in half. Pulled the old rubber out and replaced it.
