Anyone know the length of the rear wiper? I heard it's 10", but I cannot find this information anywhere online to confirm.

It's a 10" wiper. I tried looking everywhere to see where they could sell it, but no luck. Last resort was Toyota and they sold me it for 26$ :(

That's for the whole assembly or just the refill? Seems expensive for just the refill.

No. I was trying to look for wipers that were compatible with my 2013 RAV4. No brand seemed to manufacture it so I just went to my local Toyota and asked if they sell the wiper. Would be funny if they said no though. :D

Won't any 10" wiper fit it? I'm looking at a couple of 10" blade from TRICO, Valeo, and Bosch

In the FWIW department, I've been using the Toyota OEM refillable on my all my wipers for 8 years on my 09. I always thought it was a good deal (a replaceable item instead of whole arm) Toyota offered. The last rear refill at the local dealer was $3.48, but that was a couple years ago. Never had an issue with the arm tension or a need to replace the whole assembly --though it may be necessary in extreme use situations.

Agreed.. no need to replace the whole arm. Just get the refill.

Check here for your year and model.

Same here. Have been using just OEM refills only since '08. They last. Cheap and easy to replace. I like the OEM arms design, permanent color, no paint peels. No problem with mechanism.

Same here, but last time I got refills at the dealer, the price had jumped to over $9 each. Same price for all refills, driver's side, passenger side, and that little 12 inch on the rear.

i had the same problem, and yes it is the 10" specifically for rear window, AdvanceAutoParts had it but was "out of stock" so ordered me one sent straight to store, $10-$11 bucks no problem,, just some random brand i think it was TRICO...........



the little safety cover is the trickiest to take off - you think it's a huge deal but really just pull it back and lift up, easy peasy, swap the wiper all good now :)
