Rear Wiper Blade Needed for 2013 Fit

My question has likely been asked elsewhere, but I couldn't find it.

My 2013 Fit Sport's rear wiper blade is in serious need of replacement. The rubber measures 13-3/4" Long. If I buy a typical rubber blade at an auto parts store, will it fit in the Honda arm? Is there a brand and P/N I should seek?

Honda's rear blade is held within a nice arm cover which I want to keep in place. Thanks y'all.

76730-s2x-003 / blade, windshield wiper (350mm)$23.10
76632-s2k-004 / rubber, blade (350mm)$6.75


HONDA SELLS THEN
top is complete blade (includes part below)
bottom is just the refill (assuming you still have the metal strips that hold it in)

I bought the rear wiper rubber blade (only) at the Honda dealer. Can someone help me with the technique to install it? The blade assembly is contained by the arm trim piece at both ends and I can't figure out how to extract anything. Thank you.

No problem! When I was replacing mine, the rear blade was the most hassle to deal with for some reason...

That's true. My usual technique is to break the item THEN discover how it went together. :-)

Too, dealing with all black parts is always a challenge. It's hard to determine were one part ends and another begins!

Just thought I'd post two photos I took during the rear wiper blade replacement job to give an additional assist anyone who might want them.



Wiper arm in position to remove. When reinstalling, the small nubs on the inside of the blade assembly (unseen here) slide into the shallow curved grooves in the arm.




Pull blade tip and lift it out of the wiper arm to clear it of the metal stop at the end.
