    Replacing rear wiper?

    Hi folks,

    I'd like to replace the rear wiper, but am having trouble accessing it. Is there some secret to getting the wiper blade arm to stop halfway through its rotation so that I can reach the head of the wiper arm?

    Its simple:
    Start the wiper and push the tailgate open button when its on the screen middle. Then stop the tailgate and Switch ingnition off.

    I tried various suggestions from these boards a few months ago to no avail. Being frustrated, I manually stopped it myself, changed the blade, and then I turned i on it would not work. This has been the case since last September, with recent bad weather here it is now a safety issue. It is in the shop right now for oil change and rear wiper repair, fortunately service tech thinks its an easy fix. Still no idea how to really change the blade properly.

    Popping the hatch didn;t work and you have no winter setting?

    Winter Setting is only for the Front Wipers.
    For the Rear the Wiper stops only when you push the tailgate Open Button.

    I had a MY13 and now a MY15 and for both it worked this way.

    Thanks for the clarification. I;ve never played with the winter setting on our 405s as we haven;t needed to.

    The only thing that stopped the rear wiper in a position that left it accessible was popping the rear hatch mid-wipe. This was a pain to get right... That little arm moves fast!

    So annoying. I actually paid the shop to do it.

    From the UK forum:

    To get the rear wiper to stay in the middle of the window without haveng to open the boot at the exact time this works on my MY15.5

    1- turn the ignition on
    2- turn ignition off. as its going off hold the right stalk down in the single wipe position
    3- while still holding the stalk down turn the ignition back on front and rear wipers will move to the "service" position

    leave the key in the car while you change the blades then turn the ignition off to reset them.

    I'd watch out for the battery time-out though. if the ignition goes off they will probably return to their normal positions and if you've left them off the window then they are going to hit your bonnet.

    personally I'd use winter park for the fronts as i can turn the ignition off and there's no danger of them moving and this if i ever need to do the rear although it would be nice to be able to clean up there once in a while.
