2016 Mirage Rear Wiper
Plastic Cover On Base
Swing Open Hinged Cap
This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the sixth generation (2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, & 2016) Mitsubishi Mirage in changing the rear wiper blade on the back windshield window.

Owners of other Mitsubishi vehicles such as the Lancer, Outlander, Galant, Montero, Eclipse, 3000GT, Endeavor, Raider, Diamante, Attrage, Carisma, Colt, Grandis, Magna, Pajero, Space Star and the revised 2017 Mirage may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The OEM rear wiper blade size in inches is 12".

A few compatible replacement rear wiper blades with their part numbers include the following: Michelin 9512, Trico 12-A, Anco AR-12A, Bosch H307, Valeo R12E & ACDelco 8-212A.

No tools are needed to replace the wiper blade.

Lift Wiper Arm Off Window
Rotate Old Wiper Blade
Pop Off Old Wiper Blade
The first step is to gently pull open the black plastic cover on the base of the wiper arm.

Swing the hinged base cap out of the way.

Lift the wiper arm off the back window.

Rotate the old wiper blade away from the wiper arm until you feel the mounting bar pop out of the "C" shaped socket.

Old Wiper Blade Removed
"C" Shaped Socket
Mounting Bar At Center
Try to avoid letting the spring loaded wiper arm smack down on to the window to prevent from having it scratch or chip the glass.

I recommend buying the Michelin 9512 rear wiper blade since it has great reviews on Amazon.


Line Up New Wiper Blade
Insert Arm In To Opening
Snap Bar In To "C" Socket
Line up the mounting bar in the center of the new wiper blade with the "C" shaped socket at the end of the wiper arm.

The new wiper blade should be almost perpendicular to the wiper arm.

Firmly rotate the new wiper blade towards the wiper arm to pop the mounting bar in to the "C" shaped socket.

Rotate New Blade Parallel
Lower Wiper To Window
Plastic Base Cover
Continue rotating the new wiper blade until is parallel with the wiper arm.

Gently lower the the wiper blade on to the back window.

Swing Closed Hinged Cover
Snap Closed Base Cap
Rear Wiper Replaced
Swing the hinged cover closed over the base of the wiper arm and gently pop it in to place.

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