How does one replace the rear wiper?

Kind of basic i know, but my gal picked up the part from the dealer and wants me to install it. The last thing i want to do is break something (it all looks like plastic) i'm sure it just snaps on and off, but not exactly sure. is there a trick or a release?

It should just be a wiper 'insert' not a completely new blade. In which case you just slide out the thin rubber piece, and replace with new!

There is a cap at the end of the wiper arm where it mounts to the wiper motor. Pop that off and you can pull the wiper arm away from the car. (rear wiper mod Toyota Yaris/Prius - shows what I'm talking about.)

Angle the blade portion away from the arm and you should be able to pop it off pretty easy. Once you get it back you'll be able to see how it pops out.

Just pop the new one on the same way.
