I was going to delete the rear wiper on the 02 Type-S but my son says its actually useful sometimes like on mornings with heavy dew. His complaint is that even when the blade cleans, it leaves a small viewing area, leaving the majority of the glass untouched. The manual states that it is 500mm or almost 20". Has anyone installed a larger blade in the rear or possibly know what the maximum size is that can be installed to be more effective? Thanks.

From outside the car, it does look like pathetic coverage, but with how horizontal that rear glass is... just wait for a rainy day. I love having it, especially in the snow.

And two more pics showing outside and inside views after the removal of morning dew.

I was thinking about doing the same thing on mine, but I question if this puts too much strain on the motor. I'm thinking especially if there is snow on the rear glass.

So get the 26" for spring through Autumn. Swap the 20" back in for winter. Takes less than a minute. Acknowledging your very valid point about motor loading. Good statement.
