I haven't bought a new rear wiper so I can't be positive, but it looks like this according to gmpartsdirect.com

96688389

Looks like that one is about $12 from GM.

Bought of a set of these from Walmart and they seem to work great.
Driver: 24" - https://www.amazon.com/Michelin-8026-St ... AICW4?th=1
Passenger: 16" - https://www.amazon.com/Michelin-8026-St ... AICHY?th=1

Not so bad @ $25 and worked great to replace the rapidly failing ~1 year of usage on my OEM set.

Costco currently has the Goodyear Hybrid technology wiper blades on sale for $4.99 ea but you can only buy 2 wiper blades. The 24 inch blade is Goodyear 770-24 and the 16 inch blade is Goodyear 770-16. The blade for the rear window is Goodyear 730-12A but it is not available at Costco. I had to order mine online.

If you are looking for the best wiper blades for your car, check these items to see if they fit: Bosch ICON 26A, Michelin Stealth Hybrid Windshield Wiper Blades, ANCO 31-Series.

The Goodyear blades I mentioned above, for the front window, work fine once you figure out how to get the adapters installed on the wiper arms. At $5.00 each, they are a good deal and I have one set installed on my 2015 Spark EV. The rear window is slightly curved so the OEM GM blade seems to work best as both ends of the blade can bend to adjust to the changing curvature of the rear window. The Goodyear blade is rigid at the outermost end of the blade and does not always make complete contact along its length as it crosses the window.

You might want to go online to http://www.gmpartsdirect.com for Spark EV parts. I have ordered wiper blades and other parts with no problems.

DS Front wiper blade: GM part number 95108156: $15.25 …...Amazon: $21.39
PS Front wiper blade: GM part number 95108153: $15.25 …... Amazon: $21.41
Rear wiper blade: GM part number 96688389: $8.19...... Amazon: $13.76

Pay attention to the shipping costs. They are higher than I would expect to see.

^ because I ONLY want the rear wiper, the price is cheaper on Amazon (Prime means $0 for shipping cost)

The shipping fees from GMPARTSDIRECT is very high and exceeds the Amazon price with free shipping... so what appears to be cheaper, isn't really cheaper! Amazon FTW

Oh, for the front blades, I'm perfectly happy with the Goodyear we put on there (works great) Its the rear that is much more difficult to replace with a properly working one is all

I agree with you completely. When I had a need to replace the rear blades on my Spark EVs I could only find them at GMPartsDirect.com. I have a Prime membership too so, in the future, I will be ordering them from Amazon. I also agree that the Goodyear front blades work great. Costco sometimes has them on sale for $5.00 ea.
