2009 Murano Rear Wiper Replacement

I am trying to replace the rear wiper on my 2009 Murano and can't get the arm off. I removed the plastic cover and the 10 mm nut but the wiper arm will not come off the stud. Any suggestions on how to remove the wiper arm without damaging anything? Thanks, Charlie

Replace the nut and the plastic cover.

Pull the wiper away from the window, then rotate the blade toward 90 degrees perpendicular to the arm and it will pop off. You can either buy an insert to put in the existing blade, or replace the whole thing with an exact-fit from NAPA, Anco, Silblade, or others.



To replace, repeat the steps in reverse order. This is a Silblade replacement.

I think Charlie is trying to remove the entire arm from the motor shaft. The arm is most likely dry on the shaft and seized. Try some liquid penetrating fluid like "Liquid Wrench" and let it soak in. Then try tapping on the shaft (with the nut almost completely removed but still on the shaft-this will prevent damage to the threads) using gentle taps with something light but solid (plastic handle of a screwdriver?) and wiggle it at the same time. It should come off with some careful persuasion.

Perhaps so, BikerJohn. We've got him covered for both possibilities. :-)

I have seen other threads that advised removing the entire arm to just change the blade or the refill. It might be there is something different between the 1st gen and 2nd gen Murano.

This looks easy enough. Where did you get the replacement blade?

Or, if you have a good dealer service department (which I thankfully do) you go buy the replacement blade from your dealer (about $10 with tax here), and the nice young gent man in the service bay pops it on for free....

My 2012 appears to work exactly like this.

Definitely different on the 1st gen and even among 1st gens. I've got an '04 and the rear wiper is a single plastic piece hinged at the base. Was a hassle to figure out how to remove the old blade without breaking it.

The blade has a roll pin in the center which snaps into the housing. You have to slide the blade around a plastic bracket first before snapping it in. Removal process is to just pull the center of the blade straight out but that's likely to break something.
Instead, I took a tiny screwdriver (the really small ones) and gently pried the roll pin loose. There's a small gap on either side of the roll pin that gives you just enough room to get the driver in there. I found this method on another forum. Apparently the manual provides no instructions for rear wiper replacement except that the owner should visit the dealership.

Other 1st gens have an articulating, 2 piece arm that is apparently removed the same way as the 2nd gens but the whole arm needs to be taken off to provide enough clearance to swivel the arm backwards. Stupid.

At least they got it right for the 2nd gen models

My '03 has the same arrangement, a one piece arm, a hinge piece attached to the motor shaft, and a wiper blade assembly snapped in place. In my case I could not figure out how to get the blade out. I could not see any way to release the arm from the motor shaft, and there was no cap to remove to access any nut.
I pulled the rubber and steel wiper blade out of the Anco AR-14A arm. There are two metal strips, keep it all together. I pulled the old wiper blade out the end of the Murano arm, cleaned things up, and slid the new rubber and steel pieces in. Easy peasy.

Just did mine this weekend - Replacing Rear Wiper Blade? - it was pretty easy. The arm just "pops" off - I actually went into the garage to get some tools to pry it and when I came back, it had "popped" off and was laying on the ground.

Sadly you can't put the back wiper blade at 90 degrees as it will snap the arm in half. Nissan Canada has told me that they need to replace the arm and wiper on the 09's to do it properly without damaging anything.

This is the correct way to replacing the wiper blade on an 2009; it's the same way as on a 2006.

It really IS this easy - though the first time I replaced the rear wiper blade on my 04, the splines were very tight. So it took me a couple of extra minutes to pop the blade assembly off.
