There is an alternative to going to the dealer for a replacement rear blade on the 2005+ Nissan Xterra's. It may first appear that the blade and arm are one piece but if you take a look, you'll see the wiper blade can be replaced and its actually quite simple. It is a special wiper blade though. There may be other alternatives, but the 'Trico Exact Fit Rear Blade' available online snaps right onto the special rear arm and looks like the factory original. Much cheaper than the dealer alternative. Comes with removal and replacement instructions too. Hope this helps.

You can do even better by going to a larger wiper blade. The stock 2nd Gen X rear wiper blade is 12 inches long. You can replace it with a 14 inch blade from the Murano.
It fits perfectly and clears more of the rear glass.

I've gotten OEM replacement blade that is exactly what Nissan uses for the Xterra. I got it online, think it was autowarehouse.com and if I remember correctly it was less than $20

Be careful with this idea unless you're looking at replacing the rubber blade refill insert only and not the entire wiper blade assembly. I always replace the blade and frame because it goes through a lot of abuse during our wisconsin winters.

Yes, the Trico Exact Fit Rear Integral Blade comes in 12" and 14". I stick to the original size because I don't want to stress out my wiper motor, linkage or arm. As mentioned above, the wisconsin winters are brutal on wipers - especially rear wipers.

Yes, the trico is an exact OEM replacement without having to deal with the dealership!! I think it was about $12.

Thanks for the tip!
It's actually autopartswarehouse.com

I ordered Monday afternoon and was pleasantly surprised when standard UPS shipping got it to my house the next day. Turns out one of their warehouses is very close by!

Trico part # W0133-1854544 fits perfectly.
Cost about $10 + $5 shipping.

just have to pop the cover and take the bolt that holds it off. Easy and quick.

Pretty much comes out to the same price.

And also over at autopartswarehouse store you can use a coupon code "APWCART" to save some $$

It would probably make sense to buy up to 5 pounds worth of merchandise to offset the cost of shipping. Maybe get extra wiper blades, in-cabin filters, you know, stuff you need every year.
