Replacing Rear Windshield Wiper Blade

I have a 2008 4 door JK with the hardtop and need to replace the windshield wiper blade. I have looked at it 6 ways from Sunday and can't seem to see how to remove the current blade to replace it. Front is super easy because the whole wiper blade comes up. On the rear it only lifts up about 3 inches. Any insight would be appreciated, and yes I do use it and no I do not want to get rid of it.

Many new vehicles have this style rear wiper arm/blade style. Need to remove the plactic cap (carefully, especially if below freezing) then the blade will be able to lifted all the way up. Then rotate the blade out of the arm. You will need the exact replacement but most auto part stores have them now.

Maybe this will help...



If not, I will take a video of it tomorrow
