2012 Equinox Rear Wiper
Loosen Wiper Arm Cover
This automotive "how-to" guide was specifically written to assist owners of the second generation (2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 & 2016) GM Chevy Equinox in replacing the rear windshield wiper blade.

Owners of other GM vehicles such as the Spark, Sonic, Cruze, Volt, Malibu, Impala, Camaro, Corvette, Traverse, Tahoe, Suburban, Colorado, Avalanche, Silverado, Verano, Encore, Regal, LaCrosse, Encore, Enclave, Canyon, Sierra, Terrain, Acadia, Yukon, Savana, ATS, XTS, CTS, SRX and Escalade may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

A few compatible replacement 13" rear window wiper blades include the following with their part numbers: Bosch 13-CA, Anco # 91-13 Anco 31-13, Anco 30-13 (Winter Blade), ClearPlus # 20131 and Bosch 40513.

No tools are needed to replace the rear wiper blade.

Base Of Cover Removed
Slide To Left - Remove
The first step is to lift up the black plastic wiper blade cover at the base of the arm.

Slide the cover to the left (driver side) to disengage the hook on the underside of the cover.

Set the cover aside in a safe place.

Press Release Tab
Pull Blade Off To Right
Press the release tab at the center of the wiper blade and pull the blade off the metal hook by sliding it to the right.

Don't let the metal wiper blade arm slap against the glass to avoid having it cause a crack, chip or scratch.

I recommend buying the Bosch 13-CA rear wiper blade since it has great reviews on Amazon.


Don't Let Arm Hit Glass
Slide On New Wiper Blade
Orientate the new wiper blade with the rubber facing the glass and the release tab at the center facing the right side.

Slide the new wiper blade on to the metal hook at the end of the wiper arm.

Pull the wiper blade to the left to engage the retaining clip and lock the blade in place. You should hear a faint "click" when the clip is secure.

Snap In Place To Left
New Blade Installed
Hook - Underside of Cover
Slide To Right
Line up the black plastic wiper arm cover with the hook on the underside at the hole in the new wiper blade.

Insert the hook and slide the cover to the right to lock it in place.

Push Down Wiper Cover
Wiper Blade Replaced
Push the base of the wiper arm cover down to secure it in place. Double check that the cover and wiper blade are properly installed.

Have someone briefly turn on the rear window wiper to test that it works correctly.
