You can do this 2 ways. Go buy a new rear blade from the dealer and pay way to much OR go to autozone and buy a wiper the same length. Take the old rubber insert out and take apart the new blade and insert the new rubber in the old factory blade holder. I've done a ton of these at my shop becasue half of my customers don't want to pay $30 for a rear wiper blade :)

Thanks for the good info, I'll see what I can do tonight.

Any suggestions on wiper brands seeing as I'd assume we can use a frameless (such as Rain-x or Bosch blade)?

Have you checked the Hyundai parts dept.? My Accent has the same thing, the one piece frame / wiper blade. It was only $14.00, Auto Zone wanted $19.00. Still a bit of a rip, but no need to try and rebuild one. Cheers.

You can't use the frameless because your taking out the rubber only. Get the framed wiper blade and take it apart :)
Perfect, I'll see what I can pick up at the automotive store this evening.

Do you happen to know how its removed? I just ran outside to take a quick look. Do you unclip the frame from the rubber place, or just slightly bend the tip and slide it out? (*cough* thats what she said haha)

All you need is a new blade itself, not the whole "arm".
Here is a video of a rear blade change that has the same system as our SFS's.


You should be able to just buy this one piece, if not, buy a cheaper wiper blade that includes the arm, then pull it apart.
2 min job...

Get this blade - pull out the rubber blade - re-install it.

The dealer wants $18.27 for the blade. You can't buy that wiper blade anywhere but the dealer.
Let me guess... the dealer is the one telling you that you can't get it anywhere else?! :wink2:

See above.

Certified Conventional Wiper Blade | Canadian Tire

MIND = BLOWN!

I was not expecting it to be as elaborate to change the blade as that video shows hahaha You are a God among men for sharing that with me.

Will be visiting le local Crappy Tire to pick those blades up after work.

Thanks again everyone.

No the dealer is not telling me that since I run a mechanic shop. bennett auto supply had blade refills if you can take it apart as shown in the video on a TOYOTA MATRIX! ^_^

Any idea of what length "cheap" blade I should get that is not canadian tire? I have a 2014 Santa Fe and there is literally nothing but this thread that is helpful. I just need to buy one the right rubber length and take it apart like mentioned.

Thanks :)

If you can't find the exact length blade, buy any size and cut it down the correct size with a pair of scissors or razor blade.

It was a pain finding the rear wiper blade for my last two vehicles, always had to order online. Rockauto lists the denso 1605512 as a fit for rear 2014 Santa Fe, $6.78 + shipping

Aftermarket Rear Wiper Now Available

Thought I'd put a cap on this conversation. No need to "MacGiver" the rear wiper replacement on 2013-2017 Santa Fe's anymore - Trico literally just introduced the 12-K which is a factory replacement for the rear and snaps right on - boom. It also fits 09-12 Elantra, 10-15 Tuscon (its also the rear wiper blade for Kia Sorento, Sportage & Sedona of similar years). Here's a link: Trico 12 K 12" Rear Wiper Blade for Roc Lock 4 Rear Arm SUV Wagon Crossover 12K | eBay

Godspeed
