2016 Pathfinder Rear Wiper
Lift Arm Off Back Window
This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the fourth generation (2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and perhaps also the refreshed 2017 model year) Nissan Pathfinder SUV in changing the rear wiper blade on the back windshield window.

Owners of other Nissan or Infiniti vehicles such as the Versa, Maxima, Juke, Rogue, Altima, Xterra, Sentra, Murano, Cube, Armada, Leaf, Quest, Frontier, Teana, 370Z, GT-R, Titan, G25, G37, M35, QX56, QX60 and M37 may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

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

A few compatible replacement wiper blades with their part numbers include the following: Michelin 9512, ANCO AR-12E, TRICO 12-J, Valeo R12B and Bosch H301.

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

Then rotate the old wiper blade away from the wiper arm.

Pop Bar Out of Socket
Rotate Perpendicular
Continue rotating the old wiper blade away from the wiper blade until the mounting bar in the center of the old blade pops out of the "C" shaped socket at the end of the wiper arm.
Old Wiper Blade Removed
Mounting Bar - Old Blade
I recommend buying the Michelin 9512 rear wiper blade since it has great reviews on Amazon.

Hold the new wiper blade at an almost perpendicular angle to the wiper arm.

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.


"C" Shaped Socket
Line Up Bar & Socket
The rubber wiper blade should be pointing away from the back of the vehicle.
Insert Bar In To Socket
Rotate New Blade Parallel
Push the mounting bar in to the "C" shaped socket at the end of the wiper arm.

Continue rotating the new wiper blade until it is parallel with the wiper arm.

New Blade Secured
Lower Arm To Window
Double check that the new wiper blade is securely attached to the wiper arm.

Gently lower the wiper arm down to the back windshield window.

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