This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the first generation (2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 & 2019) Ford Flex crossover SUV in changing the rear wiper blade on the back windshield window.

Owners of other Ford or Lincoln vehicle such as the Explorer, Fiesta, Focus, Fusion, C-Max, Mustang, Taurus, EcoSport, Escape, Edge, Expedition, Transit Connect, F-150, Ranger, MKZ, MKC, Navigator, MKX and Continental may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The OEM rear wiper blade size in inches is 12" and the genuine Ford part number is Motorcraft WW-1201PF.

A few other compatible replacement rear wiper blades with their part numbers are as follows: Anco AR-12E, ACDelco 8-212E, Bosch H300 and Valeo 12E.

No tools are needed to remove and replace the wiper blade.

Rotate Old Wiper Blade
The first step is to gently raise the rear window wiper arm off the back windshield.

Rotate the old wiper blade away from the wiper arm at a slight angle until you feel resistance.

Pull Off Old Wiper Blade
Continue rotating the old wiper blade away from the wiper arm until you feel the mounting bar in the center of the blade pop out of the "C" shaped socket at the end of the wiper arm.

Pull the wiper blade off the end of the wiper arm.

Do not allow the wiper arm to smack down on to the glass.

Line Up New Wiper Blade
You'll also be able to see the somewhat "C" shaped socket at the end of the wiper arm.

I recommend buying the original OEM Ford rear wiper blade which is part number Motorcraft WW-1201PF.

Pass Arm Through Opening
Line up the new wiper blade with the end of the wiper arm.

The rubber blade should be pointing out away from the vehicle.

The end of the wiper arm should be inserted into the rear opening behind the mounting bar.

Rear Wiper Blade Changed
Double check that the wiper blade is securely attached to the wiper arm.

For the best wiper performance, I highly recommend thoroughly cleaning off the window and applying a glass treatment product that will repel water such as Rain-X.

Be sure to record the blade change in your vehicle's service records.
