I have the stock 15" rear wiper blade on my 06 Nox. Just wondering whether I can install the 17" wiper blade instead.

I tried something similar on my Pontiac Vibe, and it didn't work so hot. The longer blade combined with the curvature of the window caused it to miss important areas of the window. Oddly enough, I think they put on certain size wipers for a reason - what a novel concept !

hmmm... my rear windows are pretty straight... and there is a lot of room on the top and sides... Thats why I was hoping to have a couple of inches of extra blade.. ;)

"Extra inches" is never a bad thing - providing there is no curvature on the "window" !
