I'll throw some fuel on the fire here, I just went ahead and replaced ours with a fancy Michelin beam type wiper from Walmart. They work great so far! And they look uber cool, because as a minivan owner, that's important to me. They work great even at very high speeds.

You'll find that they won't last the way the OEM ones do, start skipping, etc.

...Let the WIPER WARS begin
All seriousness aside, as @Waldo said, good visibility when driving is really important.

I already started a thread on this a while back, but if anybody discovers what Trico / Anco / whateverco wiper refill inserts work, everybody here would bow down to you.

...blades have two metal strips that slide out of the old insert and into the new insert to give it the rigidity to go back into the arm.

Found the same thing with the Ody. Ordered the inserts for $5 and they came mailed all curled up and floppy in a small envelope. The 2 metal ribs are the key. No problems before. This will be the problem now though to find which ones fit with the proper end notches and rib slots.

Went with the Michelin beam type ones and had the same problem.

Anybody find a good rear wiper replacement?

Has anyone found a wiper blade insert that works with the factory wipers?

Bump. One user claimed that the wiper blades were identical to the ones on their Lexus, but never heard back about a refill swap result. Anybody have any options for a ** REFILL? **

They are totally identical. I've swapped the refills many times.

The Pacifica has a 26" driver wiper and a 20 inch passenger wiper. Same size wipers as a 2010-2018 Lexus GX460. So, stop in to a Lexus dealer and buy wiper inserts for a 2010-2018 Lexus GX460 and you'll have your inserts. $7.50 each.

OR, order online:

You can get 2 pieces of wiper blade refill for under a buck on eBay. They come from china and take a few days to get here, and work just fine for me on my other cars. Haven't had to replace the wiper blades on my Pacifica yet, but shouldn't be too difficult. Takes a little bit of work to put it on since they don't make it easy to change the wiper blade refills. In fact, I couldn't find the blade refills at any auto parts stores or walmart/target , you have to buy the whole blade and a pair of them can cost $20-40 easily.

The refills are very easy to replace, not difficult at all.

I prefer galoshes to rubbers.
They give me more protection.
Waders are even better...
