Bought new wipers for my 2011 sorento today, the fronts were ok to replace. The back one was not easy at all, I was around the wiper arm for 5 minutes and just let it before i broke it. Anyone replaced the rear wiper? Please let me know. Thanks

The premise would be you're changing into winter wiper blades right?

Well, if you didn't notice the rear wiper is different from the front stock wiper, meaning it doesn't have a moving "V" assembly to aid the blade from wiping the window surface. In short, its kinda like a winter wiper blade already - so why bother changing it?

And I don't know if they sell aftermarket wipers that short (what is it 8" or 9"?)

I already changed my front wipers into hybrid teflon ones last week.

I replaced the back one once on mine a few weeks ago. I used a stock Kia wiper though. It didn't seem too hard. It is kind if different, though, so I doubt an aftermarket blade will work.

The rear is OEM kia wiper, I just can figure it out how to remove it.

I've tried the Michelin wipers but nothing compares to the quality and visibility you get with PIAA wipers which will be going on my Sorento in the upcoming month prior to winter hitting.
