    Does anybody know if MK III rear wiper arm&blade fit MK IV CR-V ?
    Despite all the nice look of MK IV the rear wiper arm is the most basic thing and need replacing ASAP.

    Need to compare part numbers and a physical check too , but why would you want an older wiper blade ?

    If its any consolation, I ditched the rear wiper blade and slapped a Bosch Aero Wiper on there - 12 inch. Far better than the older style wiper and no squealing when it wipes too. The arm however, is unchanged.

    I managed to find a MkIII and measure the rear Wiper&arm and is about 25mm longer than MKIV .
    Will that be a problem?

    If you have a rear spoiler, yes as the blade will hit it. The standard blade is 13", my Aero Wiper is 12" (13" wasnt available).

    Suppose you could compensate the longer arm with a corresponding shorter blade, but then it will not wipe a big a surface area when it rains - which in my mind is a bit defeatest as you need good rear visibility when reversing/parking when it rains/snows etc.
