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:

Passenger: https://www.discountpartsmonster.co...0NjAmeT0yMDE4JnQ9bHV4dXJ5JmU9NC02bC12OC1nYXM=
$14 item
$20 shipping

If you guys decide to just replace. Don't forget my tip of getting 28 inch driver side wipers. They don't hit at all and you get a bigger wipe. OEM says its 26 inch for the driver.

You miss what I said earlier on. These wiper blades are not made by Chrysler, they are a third party manufacturer. They are the exact same wiper blades that I had on my 2010 Lexus ES350, 2013 Lexus GS350, 2015 Lexus LS460 and 2017 Lexus LS460L as well as my 2015 Kia Sedona. So, while I've only replaced the blades on the Pacifica once I have replaced them on those other cars many times. The blade arms and the blades themselves are identical with all the same markings, etc.
Big thanks. I was able to get the rubber parts from Lexus and it was a breeze to replace. Chrysler full blade housing costs $35 for driver and $45 for passenger for some odd reason. Paid $20 at Lexus.

No problem! Glad it helped!

I also made the mistake of buying the Michelin wipers at Costco and they chattered so badly I replaced them with my worn out OEM blades within days. I'll try the Lexus refills. The factory ones are really high quality. They lasted me 3 years in the Pacific Northwest where it rains constantly, so I was tempted to just pay for them.

Yeah just for grins I tried all the new blades again last month on the Pacifica and nothing was as good as the OEM Blades.

The part numbers for the complete OEM blades are 68197138AB (left, 26") and 68316740AA (right, 20"). They appear to be hybrid blades and not a true beam design.

The Lexus/Toyota part numbers for the refills are 85214-02340 (left, 26") and 85214-60120 (right, 20").

I assumed the blades on our van were OEM because they looked sleek and were installed by the dealership, but I just discovered they are Trico Flex/AC Delco Advantage blades. These are the same blade sold under two different brands. They worked good for the most part, but they need to be replaced after only a year and a half. They actually still work fine, but the rubber is starting to tear at the top of the driver's side blade. My only complaint with them is that they would chatter on dry or slightly wet windshield. I started using Rain-X (orange) washer fluid, and that stopped the chattering.

Personally, I've had good luck with Rain-X Expert Fit beam blades from Walmart.

"After only a year and a half"??? Where do you live? Around here in Midwest fly-over country it's a once a year replacement if you get the good ones. Stay with those Tricos!

We live in Iowa. The Rain-X Expert Fit beam blades I mentioned are on both of our other vehicles. The ones on the Equinox are close to three years old.

I probably get more mileage out of my wiper blades because I've always been picky about keeping the windshield clean. I can't stand looking through a dirty windshield. Shortly after high school, I once drove a friend's car in the rain that had a lot of road grime built-up on the windshield because they never cleaned it. I turned the wiper blades on and feared for my life because my visibility was so bad, we were driving on the interstate, and it was night time so the glare from lights made it even worse. I took the next exit to pull into a gas station and scrub their windshield clean. My friend couldn't believe the difference. I decided I'm never going to let my vehicles get that bad. To this day, I religiously clean (read: scrub) the windshield at almost every fill up, even if it's raining. I also occasionally wipe the wiper blades down to clean any oxidation or bug debris off them.

I just bought these and installed them and they are as you and everyone else above say, EXACTLY the same as the OEM.

13 bucks each online, free shipping.

You probably find better prices if you just search TOYOTA with the parts numbers and don't reference Lexus LOL...

Thanks for the advice everyone!

Toyota dealer told me those part numbers have been superseded by the following parts: 85214-0E151 (left, 26") and 85214-0E140 (right, 20")
Those wipers are a match of the 2018-2019 Toyota Camry. The driver side was slightly different on one end, seems like they made it a bit wider to prevent it from popping out.

OK I recently ordered and installed today windshield wiper inserts for my 2018 chrysler pacifica - and it is pretty easy to do. It took about 2 weeks for delivery direct from China. www.aliexpress.com $9.78 delivered for 1 left, 1 right and 2 rear replacement inserts. It took me about 5-10 minutes to replace all 3. Ben

I've used the refills from Toyota/Lexus with great results on the front. Has anyone found a refill for the rear wiper?
I was able to track down this Toyota part number: 852140E010 and it appears to be a 100% match. It was less than $8 before tax from a local Toyota dealer, same as 852140E140 and 852140E151 mentioned above. I hope this helps someone!

Keeping this alive, and repeating an earlier request for the REAR wiper rubber insert: Has anyone found the correct replacement for that Pacifica 14" rear blade rubber? I just confirmed that the driver side 26" rubber from Toyota (used on 2019 Camry, not only on Lexus) 85214-0E151 matched the original Chrysler factory rubber precisely, differing only because the date codes molded into the rubber were newer. Same for the passenger side 20" rubber which is Toyota 85214-0E140. Each of these was $10.99 "List Price" and in stock at my local Toyota parts counter. Chrysler got them from the same supplier as Toyota, probably made on the same equipment.

Thanks @blbrinson3 for the pointer to those direct-from-china discount pieces. I may order some, just to compare. But I have been an engineer at car companies and know first-hand that parts going into new vehicles in the factory really do meet higher specs than general aftermarket parts, so appreciate (and within limits will pay more for) actual "Factory Original" parts. Even if I have to buy my Mopar parts from Toyota.

Any leads on replacement inserts for the rear blade? Another Toyota using the same size blade as the Pacifica rear? I do note, as detailed in @blbrinson3 's post, that the rear insert is not as wide as the front blades.

Great Thanks, @sunshine123 ! I was just not reading closely enough to catch that fact. Now I know what to get at my local Toyota parts counter (even if they charge the List Price of $10.99 again. Must be better competition in your neighborhood for Toyota parts.).

Yeah, In hindsight, I could have been more clear about this being the rear wiper refill. Anyway, for what it's worth, I'm located in Tampa and have a few dealerships less than a 30 minute drive away, so maybe that indeed is a factor.
