I`ve read several posts asking about where to get a replacement wiper for the rear. Simple! Go to a store that sells normal length wipers. Pick out the smallest one you can find, I think that would be 12 inches(no perv comments). Buy one. Take it home and carefully pull the wiper insert out of the wiper blade frame. Set it aside. Now go to your magnum and remove the rubber wiper insert off your back window starting with the passenger side of the insert, sliding it towards the drivers side until it starts to curl and eventually sliding out of the fingers that hold the rubber insert in place. Once it slips out slide the insert all the way to the passenger side until the insert is completely detached from the plastic wiper blade. Take stock insert to new blade. Remove the stainless steel strips on either side of the blade insert. Hold old blade next to new blade and simply cut to length.you decide how you want to cut.....dremel/wire cutters, something that`ll cut thru the metal inner "backbone" of the new wiper blade. Once cut slip the two stock stainless steel strips into the newly cut to length wiper blade. Install is reverse of removal. There you have it a new rear wiper without being dicked with dealer prices. If you buy a 20" or larger wiper you easily have two new refills. Last step go to Staples and buy an "easy button". That was easy.
Good info................ my rear wiper blade is 5 years old.

Good info... I did the same thing. Bought the cheap 21" blade and cut it with a pair of side cutters. Now I have a spare too.
Mine measured 10 1/4" long exactly, that's why I got the 21"
Beans to you.
Uhm, not to sound snarky, but here. Scroll down to the 8th option. They sell stock replacements of the rear blades for $8.44.

Wouldn't trust what a website says will fit. Just bought a rear wiper replacement from RockAuto and it wasn't even close. I'm just gonna pull out the 'blade' and stick it in the old arm like MidnightSXT did. By the way TireRack has the best front wipers for our cars. The Valeo's are buy one, get one free. Bought a set for the Mag and the wife's Jeep last year, and not a problem with them!

Thanks for the beans everyone.....I hope they dont make me fart. I have to edit something tho, there is no metal "backbone" in the wiper blade insert itself,just two stainless steel pieces that you can pull off and then cut the blade down to size with a simple knife or scissors.
nice write up for sure...mine's 5 years old also and I was looking to replace b-4 winter. I use Rain X blades for the front along with the rain X glass treatment...Hardly even have to turn the wipers on in the rain...water just rolls right off.

I like to pass!!
Would it be possible to get photos of the blade being replaced???
I just don't see how it is posible to get the old wiper blade out.................
Can the wiper blade be taken off of the wiper arm??? Would that make it easier to work on??
Never mind, I figured it out.................
Has the mod bug bitten?
Just replaced my rear wiper blade at lunch. It was so easy, it was almost comical. I re-used the factory metal "ribs", since the new ones were too wide, and I really didn't feel like cutting them to length either. AWESOME!
