I have had a horrible time with the clips breaking on the wipers. The rear wiper I have only found the at the dealership. This summer I am going to see if I can find the more traditional wiper arms with the J hook that will fit our cars.

As I posted earlier:

The Trico "Exact Fit" blade series part # is 10E.

10" blade and the "E" means it has the correct factory style attachment.

This blade is readily available at any good auto parts store that handles Trico - either in stock or they can order them in for you. Amazon also has them.

Trico makes the OE blades for GM.

Reviving old thread...

I just picked these Aero blades up for $20 on amazon for the set. Let me just say, they are way better than stock! It may be that my sonic is going on 4 years old, and likely the stock blades were never replaced. These blades are super quiet and leave no streaks! Best of all FREE shipping, NO Tax and half the price of store-bought "premium" blades. Lastly, install was a breeze in just 2 minutes! Not quite as fast as RMinNJ, mainly cause I was afraid of cracking the windshield

My Aero blades are in need of replacing already. I'l probably end up with them again because if I cannot find good blades locally that don't cost $20 each.

for the rear, make sure when you remove what's there, it pulls away from the base of the arm then will come out. It doesn't just pull "straight" out of that arm... there's sort of a inset notch...pull too hard and you'll break the arm out covering.

I just bought a regular 10" blade I believe, removed all the plastic do-hickeys that they include for the various types of connections, and it just pops right into the OEM blade holder... cheap!

Found these wipers. They must be made for the Sonic, right?

I just got those bosch pure visions as well.
26" and 15" fits just like the dealer ones.

Everything is crystal clear so far!

You can actually get the 15" size in many different brands from your auto part store or even walmart.

Post rear wiper blade

Hi, I also drive the hatch. I found that the rain-x expert fit size R-12-E, sold at walmart (and probably other places) first great. It's only slightly longer than the OEM blade, it reaches about a half inch higher. However, I can't speak to the longevity. I just bought it yesterday and put it on. Hope this helps.
