    Re: Wiper Blade Replacement

    Yea, I found that out after I lifted the passenger side to replace my blades.

    It pissed me off because it chipped the paint on the edge of the hood. So I
    pulled the whole arm and moved it two teeth on the spline so that I can lift
    blade when I wash the car. Back on topic I replaced mine with Rainx and they aren't
    any more difficult than any other car. Rainx is sold at most auto parts.

    Part Numbers for the blades are:

    List is $29 each, $15 from http://www.gmpartsdirect.com/

    Also, remember that the wipers will park if you open the hood. If you have the wipers in change position, or are in the middle of the process, that could cause some damage you have anything in the area,or for some reason the wiper arm against the glass with no towel under it.

    I have Goodyear blades on mine. I believe the part numbers are just how long they are. In the case of the V - 22"

    My dealer had exact replacements, cost me $24 for both. Originally bought bosch but they are not as low a profile so called dealer for giggles and they had them in stock and where $3 cheaper per.

    Re: Wiper Blade Replacement

    Another zombie resurgence, but I can say safely that Bosch Icon will NOT fit my 06. The mechanism will only accept small hook, large hook, and pin-style wipers. Ours, not so much.

    :EDIT:

    Okay, so I went back to Pep Boys and took another shot at it, and Bosch Icon will fit - the difference is that you need to make sure the Icons you get are the "24 OE" and "21 OE" models. They take a second to figure out but snap right in once you've got it.

    I bought OE replacements from rock auto for $3.60 each. Snapped right in, wipe clear. Nice way to save $45.

    I just mine at Costco when they go on sale. They're Goodyear. I think it's like 6 or 7 bucks each blade. They fit and work well.

    I bought the Goodyear Costco ones as well but haven't installed them. Good to hear they'll fit.

    Re: Wiper Blade Replacement

    I have the Bosch Icon 21OE and 24OE. It takes two minutes to R&R. These are not the standard style, but I had worked on these before, so I did have some familiarity with them. But the Bosch's literally snap into place.

    Like everyone, I have the issue with the passenger arm contacting the hood, but the hood has already been scratched from contact, but what I do, is gently pull the wiper arm towards the top of the windshield, then pull it away from the windshield. On either side of the arm, are two finger clips. Squeeze them and push the blade away from the arm, tilting it a little at the end (so it unhooks).

    The Bosch's have a little plastic piece on them that you don't need. Use the push tab on the top of that plastic piece and pop it off. From there, take the blade over to the arm, hook it on the end, and lock the new blade's finger clips into the arm. DONE.

    I use the same blades. Once I realized there was that throwaway plastic piece it was smooth sailing.

    Re: Wiper Blade Replacement

    I actually had a crap fitment with those Goodyear blades, and they chattered while wiping...likewise for my dad on a Toyota Avalon. Guess we were doing something wrong???
