Opinion on rear wiper delete

Postby Mikakey » July 23rd, 2014, 4:49 am

So today I removed the rear wiper and put a rubber grommet that I had sitting around for a while for, I think, the purpose of deleting the wiper. Anyway it worked despite being a lot larger than the hole. Let me know what you think as far as the grommet goes. Yes I know that I now have old silver paint showing from less coverage, looking to paint this winter maybe.

This is part of the part number. Something must have punched a hole conveniently in the first bit:

Thanks. Obviously its a little ugly with the paint missing right there but it'll be fixed this winter with paint

IIRC.. People have used "faucet hole covers" to accomplish this, they seemed happy with the results, never tried myself...

I had it lying around for so long that I couldn't tell you where I got it other than it is an official Honda part and there's most of the part number

It should look good. I only use the rear wiper below 35 mph when I'm checking traffic to to rear. Above that speed the rear window doesn't get wet.

The aftermarket rear wiper size is usually specified as 18 inches. I think the 20 inch size looks better.

The Honda rear wiper has a slight aerodynamic shape useful in the front. It used to have the same part number. A 20 inch aftermarket wiper blade with holes in the wiper frame is what I use on the rear window.
