You should only use the correct size wiper or wiper blade. If you cannot find one locally (which honestly would odd, since CRVs do not use some exotic wiper... but actually a very common one) then you can input your vehicle data on Amazon and then search for a wiper that fits and is compatible with your vehicle. The Amazon Garage feature holds your vehicle data (for multiple vehicles, which you can then select in your search) and it will confirm if a part is for your vehicle or not.Hi, I have a 2009 Honda CR-V LX and was looking to change my rear windshield wiper. The smallest option I had when purchasing the wiper was 16" and I believe the CR-V rear wiper measures 14". Is it ok to still use the 16"? Thanks for the reply!
