Rear windshield wiper blades should be replaced every 12 to 18 months and checked every six months. Weather is a huge factor in the wear-and-tear of wiper blades. When a wiper blade gets old it begins to make noises, bounce on the glass and not do its job properly. Changing the rear wiper of a Hyundai Tucson is an easy do-it-yourself project that only takes a few minutes to complete by yourself.
Pull the wiper arm up off the rear windshield. It should stick out away from the windshield by itself.
Press the locking tab on the wiper arm and pull the wiper blade toward you at the same time to remove the wiper blade.
Attach the new wiper blade by aligning its hooks in the same place where the old one was attached. Push the new wiper blade into the wiper arm until you hear a click, which signals the wiper blade is locked into place.
