Rear wiper... Anyone had trouble finding a replacement on the 5? Autozone didn't have a single blade with the correct size clip. They had the right lengths, just not clip size. I know I could hit the dealer for a factory replacement but I was trying to avoid that. Hell, I had a bitch of a time just trying to find blades that I might consider an upgrade for the front that fit correctly.

Any suggestions or tips would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I think it's one of those dealer only /genuine parts . I got to look at mine . Maybe just swapping the blade rubber itself is possible

My rear is pretty much gone. Leaves dirt and grime. I park in an open garage and the dust and soot from exhausts passing doesn't do it any favours. NONE. WHATSOEVER. Up until a few weeks ago after watching a Scotty Kilmer video, I didn't even know you had to clean it. I'm learning a lot as a first time car owner.

Kia advertises our blade as some kind of special thing. Heh... I might get some Rain X when Walmart restocks them.

Just going to pop this in here, might be of use:

Part numbers and dealer pricing (Canadian) for the OEM Aero Blades that came on my SX:

Driver side - Front Left
Part Number: 98350A7600
Price $30.55 (plus Tax)

Passenger Side - Front Right
Part Number: 98360A5000
Price: $21.45 (plus Tax)

Rear
Part Number: 98850A7000
Price: $17.06 (plus Tax)


A bit steep, as to be expected as they are dealership prices.

If people have the ability to ship to a US address, you could use somewhere like Quirk Auto Parts | OEM & Aftermarket Car, Truck, SUV, & Van Parts and Accessories

Prices for the parts there are:

Driver side - Front Left
Part Number: 98350A7600
Price US$6.60 (plus Tax)

Passenger Side - Front Right
Part Number: 98360A5000
Price: US$6.60 (plus Tax)

Rear
Part Number: 98850A7000
Price: US$6.60 (plus Tax)

USPS - First Class shipping for the above three items seems to be around US$6.51

I did ask and quirkparts confirmed that they are full blades and not just refils, so that's great.
