Trying to save others some time, money, stress & headaches... There is an alternative to going to the dealer for a replacement rear blade on the 2007+ Hyundai Santa Fe. It may first appear that the blade and arm are one piece but if you take a look, you'll see the wiper blade can be replaced and its actually quite simple. It is a special rear wiper blade though. There may be other alternatives, but the "Trico Exact Fit Rear Integral Blade" snaps right onto the special rear arm and looks like the factory original. You can find it online. Much cheaper than the dealer alternative and easier/less tedious than messing around with rubber blade refills. Comes with removal and replacement instructions too. Hope this helps.

Ref our conversation from October (and another one more recent):

The key is a Trico #T14A or something that crosses to that in an OEM blade. Even NAPA OEM's a version of this blade from Trico. Lot easier to find than it once was.

How would anyone who drives a 2005 Jeep know about the Trico Santa Fe Wiper Blade or even care?

Also since no one asked about this, I expect a full compliment of Product Endorsements coming from Triple J.

Thanks for the part number. Amazon has them for 10 bucks.

Thanks TripleJ, I just replaced my rear wiper blade on my 2007 SantaFe with the Trico T14-A for $12.00. It was simple to do and the greedy Dealer did`nt get 50 bucks. Dana...

I got universal cut to fit refills from Trico from Advance for like $7 for 2 refills. It was real easy to do.

I too did the "cut to fit". Cheap and relatively easy. No need to remove the plastic wiper arm cover - just cut to length and thread in.

Any idea if the same part number would fit a 2010 Santa Fe? Obviously I don't need one just yet as I picked the car up last wednesday, but it's always good to know how/where to source this type of thing.

** edit **

Looked on Trico's website under 2010 Santa Fe and they list the Exact Fit - Blade - Rear - 14-A, so I'd say it's the same thing
