Hey guys,

Does anyone know the size/type for the rear wiper on the 2010 Elantra Touring? Are they available retail or do I have to get it from the dealer? Mine was ripped up after an ice storm.

Might be a dealer only item, I searched around a little and I couldn't come up with anything.

Just went through this last week as mine is also ripped after less than a year. Tried the two available 12" rear blades at Advance Auto Parts and neither fit (the guy at AAP was really surprised about that). Went to the dealer, discovered the part is $22 and it was not in stock. The blade is covered under the 1 year/12k miles warranty. Sadly I am over the mileage and they would not agree to cover it for me.

Stuff like this really makes me angry. There is absolutely NO excuse for having a part like a wiper blade be a dealer only part. 12" rear blades are readily available, if only they designed the hook arm to fit one of them.

I just found the wiper blade on ebay from a seller in Korea. It only cost me $7.98 including shipping. Here is the link:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAP...e=STRK:MEWNX:IT

I have no relationship to the company other than a (hopefully) happy buyer. I exchanged email with them and the guy told me that it does fit the ET (they have you send the VIN so they can verify).

Thanks a lot for this post guys. I went to my local dealship and they wanted to charge me $43 +tax for the rear wiper lol (this is Canada.. where auto stuff sucks). I'm going to call them back to see if I have coverage as it's still in the 1st year.. somehow I bet I'll get the shaft in Canada.

..and they don't. So I'll probably be ordering 3 or so of these ones off Ebay. Thanks again.

How many miles do you have? Did you check the warranty to see what it says? In the US it's 12 months/12k miles.

Meanwhile, I have an update to my story. I brought my car to the dealer on Saturday for my state inspection. I told the dealer not to replace the rear wiper because I had one on order and it was not required to pass the inspection. When I went to pick it up, the service manager told me that he was going to order one for me (for free) under warranty and asked why I had not asked them originally before ordering one. I told him I had spoken to the service rep and she told me they would not cover it after the 12k miles. He said I should have asked for him. They did not have it in stock but should have it this week. When my Korea blade shows up I will just hold onto it for the next time it needs to be replaced. I only ordered one blade since there was no shipping discount for ordering multiples.

Update: the mail just arrived and the blade is here. It's a Hyundai part (as expected), they just taped over the packaging and stuck a label on it. Given the crappy weather here in NY, I may install it and keep the dealer replacement for next time. They mailed it on the 24th so it took just over a week to arrive.

Update 2: the blade fit perfectly. Actually easier to install than the front blades.

Thanks for the update. I just ordered 3. By chance, this model wouldn't fit on the rear assembly of a 2006 Hyundai Accent would it?

I was going to order some cheap replacements for my friend as well, but I'll give her one of mine if it works. For some reason I think she may still have free ride though having purchased the car in 2006 (5yr free ride). Not sure, all I know is her rear blade is f'ed up.

Not sure if it fits a 2006 Accent. You can check an auto parts website like Advance Auto Parts and see if they list a rear wiper blade for that car. They do not for the ET. If you find one for the Accent, then this is not the blade. The other option is to email the ebay seller and ask them.
