Arrow Rear Wiper Blade on 04-05 Foresters

Have been using the 14" trico exact fit 14-B rear wiper blade. Just noticed on Wipers123com that trico just came out with a new part number in oct 2010 and is specifying the 16" 16-B for the 04 & 05 Subaru Foresters.



They're still specifying the 14-B for other years though (fyi).

I just put on a Trico ExactFit 16" 16-B Rear Blade replacement from AutoZone ($9.99) today. It is identical to the rear factory blade on my 2005 Forester (both in style and size). The swap took about 10 seconds and it fit like a glove.

You must live in the big city!! None of the autoparts stores within a 10 mile radius of me stock them... So I figure if they have to order it, I might as well order it myself! ;) https://www.wipers123.com/detailed_p...products_id=91
