2009 VUE 2.4L
Default Rear wiper blade- 2009 Vue XE

I have owned this '09 Vue XE since new, and I finally have gotten around to replacing the rear wiper blade... but I've discovered that I can't seem to find a replacement.

I've searched the forums here and have found a number of old threads of people suggesting replacements that will fit, but can't find anything recent, nor any of the suggested parts.

Any tips on a replacement part that will work?

I tried a Reflex 12"-B type fro Canadian Tire as it looked like it might work, but the post on the new blade is too large diameter to fit in the clip on the wiper arm... discovered after I applied pressure to snap the new blade in and the new blade broke in half. lol

There are a couple other mounting options in the 12" but don't really want to randomly buy parts hoping it might fit.

I'm open to ordering online as well if it's easier.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Did you try looking for the rear blade for a 2010 Captiva? That is what I used to have to do on my 08. Blade fit like a champ.

Thanks for the tip. As luck has it, I finally found a fit... NAPA was able to order one in that looks to fit the bill. Haven't tried it yet, but crossing fingers it fits.
