windscreen wipers replacement

Post by JayBee » Sun Sep 20, 2020 5:58 pm

We have '17 Niro 2. Have just noticed the rubber on the rear windscreen wiper blade is splitting (about 5cm).
How easy is it to buy replacement wiper blades?
Is it just the 'rubber' bit I have to buy, or is it better to buy the blade with the rubber already attached (but not the whole arm...).
How easy is it to replace
a) just the rubber bit.
b) the blade and rubber.

How easy is it to actually buy the parts and will it affect the warranty if not fitted by Kia?

And finally.... Why is Miss Universe always won by someone from Earth?

Over to you....

Hi. I have a 2017 Niro 3. I couldn't find a rear blade online and just bought one from the dealer. I think it was £16. It's all one unit and is very easy to replace. Lift it slightly away from the window and just pull gently towards you. Google videos on YouTube.

I’m not sure about the rear blade/wiper, but I bought a set of front blades from Amazon. They fit and work perfectly even though the Amazon system said they would not fit!
These are what I bought.

I expect others will have found cheaper, but I got next day delivery
A quick google search found this for the rear wiper.

Hope that helps.
