2014 Tucson Rear Wiper
Plastic Cap On Base
Pull Off Plastic Cover
This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the 2nd generation (2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 & 2015) Hyundai Tucson SUV in changing a burnt out brake, turn signal, rear side marker, parking and reverse bulbs in the tail light assemblies.

Owners of other Hyundai and Kia SUV, hatchback, crossover or minivan vehicles such as the Accent, Elantra, Veloster, Veracruz, Santa Fe, ix35, Rio, Soul, Sedona, Sorento, and Sportage may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

A replacement 12" rear window wiper blade is Hyundai OEM part number 98850-1H000 or 988501H000.

They can be purchased online at Amazon or at your local Hyundai dealership.

Two other compatible wiper blades with their part numbers are as follows: Bosch H300 and Anco AR-12A.

No tools are needed to change the rear wiper blade.

Lift Arm Off Window
Rotate Blade Away From Arm
Pop Bar Out of "C" Socket
The first step is to lift the rear wiper arm off the glass until it stays in the raised position by itself.

Then rotate the old wiper blade away from the arm at a slight angle.

Continue rotating the wiper blade away from the wiper arm until the mounting bar in the center of the blade pops out of the "C" shaped socket at the end of the arm.

I recommend buying the genuine OEM Hyundai 98850-1H000 wiper blade.

Mounting Bar
"C" Socket - Wiper Arm
Bar & 2 Small Guide Pegs
If you examine the center of the new wiper blade, you'll see the solid mounting bar in the center and the two small guide pegs or "nubs".


Line Up Bar & "C" Socket
Pop Bar In To Socket
Rotate Blade Towards Arm
Line up the mounting bar on the new wiper blade with the "C" shaped socket.

Line up the two guide pegs with the curved slots further down on the wiper arm near the "C" socket.

Pass the end of the wiper arm through the opening in the new wiper blade.

Rotate the wiper blade and snap in the mounting bar in to the "C" shaped socket and slide the pegs in to their slots.

New Blade Attached To Arm
Blade Parallel With Arm
Lower Arm To Window
Continue rotating the new blade assembly until it is parallel with the wiper arm.

Gently lower the wiper arm against the rear window.

Line Up Plastic Cover
Pop Plastic Cap In Place
Rear Wiper Blade Replaced
Line up the plastic cover over the base of the wiper arm.

Gently pop the cap back in to place over the base of the wiper arm.

For the best wiper performance, I recommend thoroughly cleaning the window and applying a window treatment product such as Rain-X.
