Easy Mod for you 07 08 & 09 models

My 07 Expy's rear wiper got a little bent up in the car wash last week, so I figured why not upgrade to the 10 model rear wiper that is concealed in molded plastic. For about $20 and ten minutes you can switch it over.
Part numbers are pictured below. Wiper arm was $7.23 and blade was $11.98

I like that! Did you need to by a new wiper arm cap?

I thought I would and ordered it but as it turns out the arm comes with cap and all, existing 13mm nut works as well.

I got the parts online at Tasca Ford Parts, but they sent the wrong wiper blade with the wiper arm, I returned the blade and picked it up locally at my dealer same day, for the same price, without shipping cost, which is where I should have started in the first place.

I can tell you with my 10. . .the wiper doesn't fold out (not sure if previous models do or not) so it makes it a PITA to clean all of the window because the wiper does get in the way

The one I just put on folds out just as much or a touch more then the metal arm and blade I replaced with, I had no trouble getting a rag underneath the wiper to clean the window.

How hard was the install? Does the assembly inside of the rear window have to come out?

Thanks for the idea. I was getting my oil changed today so I bought these parts. 10 minutes later and it is on. It gives the back such a cleaner look. My dealer wanted 11.98 for the blade and 10.00 for the arm.
