Answer

1. Buy the correct-fit replacements. Depending on the age of the vehicle, its becoming more and more important to lookup the correct rear blade due to the new, stylish rear wiper arms. In fact, as of 2008, over 32% of vehicles had one of five specialized rear arms.

The good news is - specialized rear arms do not automatically mean the wiper blade is difficult to change - it just means you need to get the right blade for easy (and successful) installation. You may have to go to your dealer or you may want to look into Trico Exact Fit Rear Integral Blades that fit these new special arms. (there may be others available that I am not familar with)

Correct replacement windshield wiper blades are not only correct length, but also correct attachment. Never just buy by length only. Always lookup your vehicle in an application guide at the store or now-a-days you can 'lookup wiper size' online. The key to an easy install is correct size/correct part numbers.

2. The new replacement wiper will have step-by-step, illustrated instructions. Take your new wiper blade and instructions out to your vehicle and physically get the old and new wipers in your hands and take a look. The instructions will make 100% sense once you're looking and touching them.

3. Most wiper replacements do not require tools and take approximately 2-15 minutes.

That rear wiper blade is only available at the dealer (there are no aftermarkets available). So, when you go to purchase the wiper blade, ask them for replacement instructions.

The Toyota Highlander rear wiper blade is held in place by two retaining clips. Remove the retaining clips and the wiper blade will slide out.

It will depend on if your rear wiper looks like a traditional wiper blade or if it looks like a newer, fancier wiper blade. If traditional looking then watch "hook arm" video. If a newer-style wiper blade then watch "xx-E video".

I do not see a rear wiper blade listed for a 2008 Ford Focus. If there is one on there, it must be a special Ford-only wiper (which is rare for Ford - they normally go with universal wipers). I do see that 2000-2007 Ford Focus has a rear wiper listed for both the hatchback and wagon. So, possibly you have the year wrong? If so, the wiper blade videos for hook-end wiper arms will show you how to change the rear (as well as front) wiper blades.
