I am having trouble finding a 15" replacement for the rear wiper. Any reason I couldn't use a 16" Bosch, or something?

I've used blades 1" longer than specified with no adverse affects. Cleans a bigger area of the window with more visibility available. 1/2" on each side of the blade extra should be no problem. Just check clearance.

May tax the wiper motor a bit more, but couldn't be much. Plus, I know I use my rear wiper less than my fronts. I'd go for it.

I've used 1 inch longer too. Mine is an 02 so I think it's the same. Before this I also cut a longer rear wiper and put the rubber part in the old stock frame and that has worked too.
