2006 rear window wiper blade, how to replace??

Hello,

I bought a generic blade that is designed to latch onto a blade arm. I was able to fronts, no problem, they had a U-Hook, and the generic blade had a fiting.

Now I get to the rear blade haha,, How do I get the old one off ?? I cannot see any way to unlatch it.

If the 06 rear wiper is the same as 04, then it will work with an OEM refill only. Here's how to install it: Rear Wiper Blade Replacement 04 XT - ScoobyMods

If you want to use aftermarket blades, you can also swap out the composite wiper arm with one of the older metal ones for the 03 Forester.

cant view pics

that site requires a user name

Does this mean that you do not repalce the entire blade arm, but only replace the rubber insert?
