How to replace Nissan Leaf rear wiper blade

This information pertains to the 2013 Nissan Leaf, however I believe this applies also to at least model years 2011-2015 since the part number has not changed. Part number for the wiper blade is: 287903NF0A, online price ranges from $12-$15.

Surprisingly, I could not find a video or detailed guide on how to do this, the closest most relevant thread I found was this.

I took some pictures that hopefully guide others on how to replace the blade, but it is extremely easy.

First snap out at by pulling the blade away at a approximate 90 degree angle, if it doesn't feel like it's coming out, just pull harder.

This picture shows how the blade aligns:

Here is another alignment picture as I was snapping the new one back in:

You snap by pushing it hard back in, again approximately 90 degree angle and watching for the proper alignment.

I just finished doing this on my Leaf. The MyNissanLeaf forum was a little confused about this, but your post shows it exactly how it works. If you can't get it at first, just keep manipulating it and it will become obvious soon enough.
