Bosch offers a line of windshield wiper blades that are compatible with any vehicle. The Bosch wiper blades are equipped with the DirectConnect option for simple, one-step installation. The DirectConnect system fits any type of wiper arm, without the need of a separate adaptor. The wiper blades are installed with a few simple movements of the wiper arm. Replace your windshield wiper blades at first sign of wear and tear, such as skipping on the windshield or visible deterioration.

Remove the old wiper blades. Lift the wiper arm away from the windshield. The wiper arm will prop itself up once it hits a 45-degree angle. Depress the small tab located on the underside of the wiper blade. Pull the wiper blade down while depressing the tab. Discard the old blade.

Place a towel down on the windshield while the blade is off the arm. If the arm accidentally releases and hits the windshield, it will crack the glass.

Pinch the sides of the adaptor housing together. Pull the adaptor housing back to open the adaptor. Slide the wiper arm through the opening on the top of adaptor housing. Slide the hook of the windshield wiper arm into the adaptor by pulling the wiper blade up. Close the adaptor housing to lock the wiper into place.

Lower the windshield wiper arm slowly to the windshield glass. Remove the towel. Repeat theses steps for the opposite wiper blade, if needed.
