Highly recommend seller. Received items quickly and in perfect condition. Just bought my first Mini and so glad I found a great site to purchase "extras" for it. Thanks.Ellen Robinson

I had a bit of disappointment today when my new hitch arrived - it was not the correct model for my car.
In retrospect, I looked back at the ordering page and found that it was my mistake but I could see why. I searched for a hitch for a Mini-S R53 and it took me to a 1001 which is for a non-S R50. The model numbers for the hitches and the cars they match up with were at the very bottom of the page, which I didn't see when ordering. It would have been very helpful if the drop-down menu had not just the hitch model number (1003) but the car model as well (R50, R53...) to help avoid this confusion.
It cost me return shipping and another week or more of wait. Not fun.Douglas Thompson

These guys are the best. Their knowledge of these cars is over the top. You get so much more than parts here; you get knowledge and amazing customer support. I just won't deal with anyone else anymore, this place is that good. Than you Aaron and everyone for making a great place to keep all my MINI's going strong!Tony

The Best Windshield Wipers and Glass Treatments for Your Car

Why you should trust us

Ed Grabianowski has been writing about the automotive industry for sites like HowStuffWorks since 2005. He’s written about million-dollar supercars and raced a $200 Saturn in the snow. He said, “I’m no master mechanic, but I handle basic maintenance and am slowly restoring a classic car (if you think finding wipers for your car is hard, try finding them for a 1963 Ford Thunderbird).”

Rik Paul was the automotive editor for Consumer Reports for 14 years, where he edited all of the publication’s auto accessory tests, including, yes, windshield wipers. Prior to that, he was the senior feature editor for Motor Trend for nine years, where he wrote a monthly column about car care and maintenance. He cut his teeth in the area of auto maintenance and repair by writing DIY repair manuals for Haynes Publications, rebuilding an engine that started out as pieces in a wooden crate, and coaxing several past-their-prime cars down the road with a ready toolbox and lots of TLC.

To help us figure out which wipers work best, we also talked to other automotive writers and experts, interviewed several auto-service shops (in Chicago and Portland, where wipers get lots of use), dove into user ratings on several websites, and have been running ongoing tests of our picks and other wipers.

When to replace your wiper blades

Wipers should smoothly clear water, snow, and slush from your windshield with no squeaking, chattering, skipping, or grabbing. If you notice these signs, or if a wiper is leaving streaks or bands of water, it may be time for new ones. When long-term testing our picks, they typically worked well for about nine months to a year before showing signs of wear, although this varied, depending on the conditions, the type of wiper, and how well they were maintained. Sure, wipers see a lot of action in wetter and snowier areas, but even in the southwest, where you can go months without rain, they can degrade quickly. The constant heat, dryness, and sunlight can deteriorate the rubber element; we’ve even seen long-unused wipers that had to be peeled off of the windshield glass. So, in those conditions, it’s good to run your wipers about once a week while spraying the windshield with washer fluid.

When we asked representatives from several service shops about problems they’d seen caused by worn, neglected wipers, the answers were both similar and convincing. “I personally have seen people wait so long that the blade becomes old and brittle, and it damages the window,” said Joe Betancourt Jr., VP of Joe’s Expert Auto in Chicago. “In some cases, the blade comes off with the backing and the arm will gouge the glass, causing an expensive and unneeded repair.”

Pete McAdoo, of Honest-1 Auto Care in Portland, agrees, “I’ve seen them come off, come apart to where they scratch the glass. And now they have an etching of the sweep of the wiper on the glass.” McAdoo has also seen disintegrated wipers get hung up on something and damage the wiper motor: over a prolonged period of time, even a wiper that’s chattering and dragging on the windshield “puts stress on the motor and linkage,” which can shorten their service life. “Change them on a regular basis,” he advices. Travis Decker, of Portland’s Atomic Auto Service, agrees: “Wipers are cheap insurance” against more costly repairs.

If you notice your wipers having problems, first try cleaning the rubber blade. Sometimes that’s all it takes to get a few more weeks or months from your existing wipers. Dip a clean paper towel or cloth in a little water, washer fluid, or rubbing alcohol and wipe along the edge of the blade. Also, look at it closely and feel for any adhered debris or roughness. The edge should be sharp and smooth without any nicks, chips, or gaps, and the rubber should be pliable, not cracked or brittle.

In the winter, thoroughly scrape ice off of the windshield before using the wipers, as ice can abrade the rubber and dull or damage the edge.

Geoff Helzer, of Portland’s Green Drop Garage, said that another common problem he’s seen is a film that builds up on the windshield from oily, greasy road-grime spray. “The film can be removed by using a windshield stripper product that does a deep clean of the windshield surface,” he said. It requires some elbow grease, but “has proven to be very effective in returning the glass to a like-new condition.”

If cleaning doesn’t help the wipers, it’s time for new ones. And always replace them in pairs, because if one wears out, the other won’t be far behind.

Replace both wipers. Once one blade wears out, the other won’t be far behind.

While a lot of people wait for these problem signs to appear before buying new wipers, it’s better to be proactive and replace them before you need to. Not being able to see clearly in a sudden downpour or heavy snow or ice storm can be a real drag, not to mention dangerous. And then there’s that “cheap insurance” thing, too—it’s better to replace them before they wear to the point where they can cause damage to the car.

So, how often should you replace your wipers? Wiper manufacturers and a couple of the shops we talked to suggest replacing them every six months. But once per year may be a reasonable interval for you. In an online poll we conducted, about a quarter of respondents said they replace their wipers about every nine to 12 months, while about a fifth said every 12 to 18 months. Almost as many—18 percent—agreed that we summed up their thinking on the issue with the question, “Wait. Wiper blades don’t last forever?”

Travis Decker, of Atomic Auto Service, recommends to replace them as needed, but that depends on the climate. “Here, in Oregon, I suggest every fall.” Joe Betancourt, of Joe’s Expert Auto, said, “In areas like where we are (Chicago), I recommend every 3 to 4 months during the winter season, due to icing on the windshield.”

If you have a tough time remembering to get new blades, tie the task to another regular event. The windshield wiper industry has tried to co-opt Groundhog Day as national “replace your wipers day,” so you can use that if it works for you.

Types of wiper blades

There are several types of wiper blades available for today’s cars, including traditional bracket blades, low-profile beam blades, and newer hybrid blades that combine those designs. Each has its own advantages, and the one that’s best for you depends on your vehicle, your budget, and your local climate.

The older-style brackets, which use a framework with multiple contact points to press the blade to the windshield, are typically the least expensive, but they’re more vulnerable to wintry conditions. The metal framework allows snow and ice to collect during winter driving. That buildup can bind the wiper and cause smearing, streaking, or a complete failure to clear the windshield. If you drove cars before beam blades became popular, you might have had to open your window while driving and reach out to “snap” the wiper against the windshield to clear away the ice buildup. So-called “winter” blades are designed to prevent this; they’re basically a bracket blade with a big rubber boot that covers the metal framework to keep the ice out. But winter wipers have all but disappeared since the introduction of beam blades.

Beam blades, which use a single curved piece of metal within the blade to provide tension and contact, generally work better than bracket-style blades in wintry conditions. That’s because their sleek design doesn’t give snow and ice anything to build up on. They can cost a few dollars more than bracket-type wipers, however. Some of the manufacturers and experts we consulted told us that the design of beam blades gives them better performance and greater durability than bracket blades because they spread the force evenly along the length of the blade instead of at the contact points where the brackets attach.

Beam blades generally work better than bracket-style blades in wintry conditions.

Geoff Helzer, of the Green Drop Garage, said, “We have found the beam-type blades maintain better contact with the windshield and produce less chatter during lower temperatures.”

Luke Perkowski, former senior product manager with Bosch, told us “The pressure distribution is also better on a beam blade. With a bracket, the load path travels through the frame to the claws that connect to the blade. There’s more pressure at the claws, which accelerates wear. We can also engineer beams more precisely, to create the best curvature for the radius of the windshield, which allows for consistent wear and even pressure.” That sounds great if the blades fit your car, but, again, different windshields have different curvatures.

In terms of durability, however, our long-term testing didn’t show a significant difference between beam and bracket blades.

Hybrid blades, which have become more popular in recent years, have a similar construction as bracket blades, but with an outer shell that helps give them a lower-profile, more aerodynamic shape. This helps give them similar resistance to snow and ice buildup as beam blades.

If your vehicle originally came with bracket blades, you can typically upgrade to beam-blade or hybrid replacements. If your car originally came with beam blades, however, you should replace them with the same type to make sure they fit right and provide the same performance.

How we picked

A variety of wiper blades still in their store packaging.

Our initial research on windshield wipers led us to three insights: There are no recent tests of wiper blades that are a reliable barometer; it’s very difficult to get hard data on wiper performance; and, as long as wipers fit the windshield and can handle wintry conditions, there doesn’t seem to be a great gap in performance between most wipers in the early months of use. In fact, Geoff Helzer, of Portland, Oregon’s Green Drop Garage, said, “Honestly, if they are being changed twice a year, almost any brand will be sufficient.” (Of course, we know that most people don’t change them that often; only 16 percent of our survey respondents reported changing wipers every six to nine months.)

So, we reasoned that the best way to identify wipers that are best for most people is to see which models draw the most positive—and the least negative—feedback from users and professionals. We interviewed representatives from several auto-service shops in such weather-challenged areas as Chicago and Portland, Oregon (which averages more than 150 rainy days per year). We also reviewed user ratings on a number of websites that sell wipers, noting which models tend to show up at the top. And finally we took a deep dive into the ratings for the top 60 best-selling wipers on Amazon. Here, because of the high number of user reviews, we could look beyond the overall ratings to see each wiper’s percentage of five- and one-star ratings and the differential between the two. We’ve found that when a driver buys a wiper that doesn’t fit his car’s windshield—leaving streaks or bands of unwiped water—he or she generally gives it a one-star rating. So that is a good indication of how many cars a particular wiper doesn’t fit well. So, the larger the differential between five- and one-star ratings, the more people were happy and the fewer people were unhappy. And we figured that means it’s more likely that you’ll be happy with the wiper as well.

Our pick: Bosch Icon

While no wiper blade is right for every car, our research shows that the Bosch Icon is a good bet for most drivers. Sure, you could get a wiper that fits your car perfectly by paying a visit to your dealership and possibly paying more. But if you want to simply order online or pick wipers up in an auto-parts store or big-box retailer (as more than 80 percent of people who responded to our online wiper survey do), we’re convinced that the Icon is an easy choice for many people. The Icon is a beam-blade wiper that, like all beam blades, works better than traditional bracket wipers in wintry conditions, so it’s a good year-round performer. Among the four auto service shops we talked to in Chicago, Illinois and rainy Portland, Oregon, Bosch wipers are recommended by two of them. The Icon, which is Bosch’s top-of-the-line model, is consistently among the top-rated wipers on websites that sell a wide range of models, including Amazon, Walmart, Advance Auto Parts, and JC Whitney. And on Amazon, which has by far the most user ratings, Icon models not only get among the highest overall ratings of any best-selling wiper at the time of this writing, across all sizes, they earn the highest percentage of five-star ratings and the lowest percentage of one-star ratings among the most popular wipers, meaning the Icon is more likely to fit your car.

Although the Icon has been around since 2005, Bosch reformulated its rubber element at the beginning of 2015, now using what it calls its “ClearMax 365” composition, a design that’s exclusive to the Icon and other premium Bosch models. The company claims that internal testing shows this formula to resist cracking from ozone up to 40 percent longer than competitors. Because that’s a Bosch test, you can take it with a grain of salt (and ozone certainly isn’t the only thing that degrades wiper blades). But it’s a good example of how things are constantly evolving in this market.

What we can tell is that most users rate the Icon wipers highly. Our in-depth look at user reviews and ratings on Amazon, for example, revealed that the vast majority of people who bought the Bosch Icon wipers are very happy with them, more than with any other popular model.

Bosch is also a trusted brand in this area. As one of the largest suppliers of auto parts, it provides original-equipment wipers to such companies as Ford, Volkswagen, Mercedes-Benz, Volvo, and Porsche, according to Autohaus AZ. Geoff Helzer of the Green Drop Garage in Portland, Oregon, said that his shop tends to use Bosch wiper blades on their customers’ vehicles. Similarly, Travis Decker, of Portland, Oregon’s Atomic Auto Service, told us that they typically recommend Bosch Evolution wipers, a beam blade that’s one step down from the Icon in Bosch’s lineup. He added that they used to sell the Icons, but that “the Evolution seems to be a very similar product” at a little lower price. (When we checked, the Evolution was a couple dollars less than the Icon on Amazon for similar sizes.) The only other brands recommended by the shops we talked to were PIAA and Denso, which supplies original-equipment wipers to several automakers and isn’t available through many retailers.

Is the Icon a sure bet? No. A small percentage of users have been disappointed, often because it didn’t fit the contour of their windshield well or didn’t attach to the wiper arm correctly. In fact, we experienced this latter problem when installing a set of Icons on a 2013 VW Jetta for long-term testing. Although the car selector tool indicated that the 24OE and 19OE versions would fit the car, the connectors on those wipers don’t fit easily in the car's wiper arms. (Similar problems with the Icon OE models have been reported by other Audi and VW owners, and the selector tools have now been corrected.) We were left with the choice of either returning them or removing a couple small plastic protrusions on the connector to make them fit. We went with the latter option, which took about 15 minutes per wiper with a drill and small grinder attachment; though not the most elegant solution, it worked.

Long-term test notes

Over the past couple of years, several Wirecutter staffers have had good experiences with the Bosch Icon wipers on a variety of cars. One of this guide’s writers, located in the New York area, got excellent performance from the Icons on his 2013 VW Jetta for more than a year before he began to hear some squeaking and saw some smeared water left behind after a wipe. Still, he cleaned them regularly and squeezed another year out of them before buying replacements.

Other staffers have had no problems with their Icons over the past nine months to a year (including a full winter) while using them on a 2000 Honda CR-V in Saint Paul, Minnesota; a 2005 Honda Pilot in the San Francisco Bay Area; and a 2008 Ford Escape and 2004 Ford Explorer in Houston. In a future update, we’ll let you know how long they go before showing signs of wear.

Runner-up: Rain-X Latitude

When we first published this guide in 2013, we chose the Rain-X Latitude as our top pick. And after running it on a number of cars over the course of a year, we found it worked well for most of our drivers (although not definitively better than the Valeo 600 bracket-type blade that was also in that test). Overall, though, it doesn’t fare as well in user reviews as the Bosch Icon, and more people have complained that it doesn’t fit their windshield well.

In our long-term test, only one of eight drivers had problems with the Latitude from the start (on a 2004 Chevrolet Impala). And while the Latitude is a best seller on Amazon and is generally rated highly, it’s garnered more negative reviews than the Icon, with many people complaining about the fit.

While our experience has been pretty positive overall, on other websites we looked at, the Latitude doesn’t show up among the higher-rated models as often as the Icon, and none of the service shops we interviewed mentioned they recommend it to their customers.

In 2015, Rain-X introduced a new version, called the Latitude Water Repellency wiper, which the company claims leaves a thin layer of Rain-X water-repelling treatment on the windshield to help water flow off more easily. Although this wiper gets mostly positive user ratings on Amazon, some people have complained that the Rain-X coating lasts only a few weeks, and a few have complained about the rubber element becoming separated from the wiper. We’re not surprised by the first gripe, as, in our own testing, we’ve found the Rain-X repellent itself effective but short-lived. We’ve also just installed a pair of Latitude Water Repellency wipers on a staffer’s car to get our own impressions.

Also great: Valeo 600 and Rain-X Weatherbeater

If your car originally came with traditional bracket-type wipers and you don’t need the extra insurance that beam blades provide in snowy and icy conditions, you can save a few bucks by sticking with a bracket wiper. The Valeo 600 is one we can personally vouch for, as it was one of the two wipers (with the Rain-X Latitude) that we used in our long-term, multicar test. The Rain-X Weatherbeater is another best seller on Amazon that has gotten high ratings. It’s also among the higher-rated wipers on Advance Auto Parts’ website.

In our long-term testing, the Valeo 600 received high scores from most drivers; an exception was one with a 2010 Ford Edge, who gave it only a six out of 10. And though yes, a lot has changed in the wipers market since we first started testing, Amazon users still rate it well. The differential between five- and one-star ratings puts it solidly between the Bosch Icon and Rain-X Latitude in how well it works for most people.

The Rain-X Weatherbeater has garnered similarly good reviews as the Valeo 600. Some Weatherbeater versions have also earned a high rating from users on Advance Auto Parts.

Upgrade pick: PIAA Super Silicone

PIAA Super Silicone wipers cost a few bucks more than most wipers of a similar design, but they’re claimed to last longer and are backed up by high praise from both one of the shops we interviewed and Amazon users. When we asked Travis Decker of Portland, Oregon’s Atomic Auto which wipers he recommends, he told us that “PIAA Silicone are the best I have ever used.” They “last longer and are impregnated with silicone, so they leave a slight bit of water-repellent film on the windshield.” He does admit that they’re pricey, though, which is one reason he typically recommends Bosch blades to his customers. PIAA claims that the silicone element will last “at least 2x longer than traditional blades.” We can’t comment on this until we have spent more time with them, but users are pretty enthusiastic, giving the bracket-type Super Silicone wiper a high overall rating on Amazon. PIAA wipers are available as beam-blade, bracket, and hybrid designs, and on Amazon all get high overall ratings with relatively few negative reviews.

Best window treatment: Rain-X Original Glass Water Treatment

Water-repellent windshield coatings, which help water bead off the glass, can be an effective supplement to wipers, helping make it easier to see out of your windshield—they’re especially useful in heavy rain. If you want the most effective repellent, pick up the classic Rain-X Original Glass Water Repellent and commit to applying it once a month—its effectiveness wears out after several weeks.

Once applied, Rain-X forms a hydrophobic coating that causes water to bead up and quickly slide off your windshield—instead of spreading out on the glass—especially at highway speeds. This makes it easier to see through the clear areas between the beads, and takes some of the workload off your wipers. Rain-X has worked very well in our testing, and it has received the most reliably positive user reviews we’ve found, but most users agree that you need to reapply it about once a month to maintain effectiveness.

If you simply want to give your windshield a boost, Aquapel Glass Treatment isn’t quite as effective as Rain-X and is quite a bit more expensive, but it can last much longer—it’s a better option if you don’t want to bother with monthly applications. Instead of coating your windshield, Aquapel bonds to the glass chemically and should last for three to six months before you’ll need to reapply. To give you an idea of how the two compare, check out this YouTube video that shows a 30-day comparison: Rain-X is more effective at first but after a month Aquapel still works even after the Rain-X has all but worn off.

For either product, you’ll need to start with an extremely clean windshield, and both products dry best in warm weather, out of direct sun. Even when perfectly applied, however, these treatments have potential drawbacks. Some people complain that the products cause noticeable haziness at night. Others report trouble getting windshield chips professionally filled after learning that the chemicals interfered with repair methods, though Aquapel’s site refutes such claims.

How to choose wipers

In our online poll, we asked people, “Is it hard to find wiper blades that fit your vehicle?” While 93 percent of the respondents said no, seven percent said yes. One person wrote that the clips often don’t match the arms on European models (a problem we experienced with our VW Jetta), but we were surprised to see owners of such models as the Honda Civic and Fit and the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Liberty having problems, too.

Unfortunately, there’s often no surefire way to figure out which brand and model of wiper blade will give you the best fit until you’ve actually bought and tried to install them. So check the return policy and keep the receipt regardless of what you buy and where you buy it. If you’re having trouble finding a wiper that fits your windshield well, don’t fret; we have some best practices for finding something that will:

  1. Find the right size. Look in your owner’s manual to see what size wipers your car or truck uses. Often, it needs different sizes for the driver and passenger sides of the windshield. And if your vehicle has a rear wiper, it could need still a third size for that. Amazon and other websites that sell wipers will recommend wiper models and/or sizes if you input the model and year of your car, but we’ve found that the recommended versions can be incorrect now and then, so check your manual to be sure. The chances are that you’ll install the new wipers and be on your merry way. But if they can’t attach properly to the wiper arm or don’t fit well with your windshield, leaving unwiped bands or areas of water, what’s your next move?
  2. If you don’t mind possibly spending a little more money, you could get wipers through a dealership that would be direct replacements for the ones that originally came on your vehicle. These may not be the latest high-tech designs, but they should fit. Or give a call to the dealer’s parts department and ask which make and model wiper comes on that car. Then, you may be able to order it online through the normal channels.
  3. Check what’s working for others. Look for online forums for your make and model of vehicle and search for “wipers.” The forum users may have had this discussion already and come up with specific wiper recommendations. Or search online user reviews of wipers, using your make and model of car as the search terms. If users have had success or difficulty using particular wipers on your make and model, you’ll know whether to buy or avoid.
  4. Here’s another alternative. Several wiper manufacturers offer an “OEM” line of wipers that are claimed to be similar to the ones that came on the car. Trico Exact Fit and Rain-X Expert Fit are two examples. True, you have no guarantee those wipers will fit or attach properly, either. But at least, that’s what the manufacturers are aiming for.

Our bottom-line advice is to find a wiper that fits your car and replace it every year.

What about refilling existing blades?

Sometimes, you can save a few dollars by replacing only the rubber wiping element of your windshield wipers (known as a wiper refill or insert), and keeping the existing metal frame. This is an inexpensive way to refresh your wipers that many people have long championed. For most people, though, we don’t recommend doing this because of the drawbacks. First, you need to remember the exact type of wiper that’s on your car so that you can get the correct replacement element. For many people, installing a refill is more difficult than simply attaching a wiper blade to a car's wiper arm. In addition, the wiping element isn’t the only thing that wears out, especially with traditional bracket-style wipers.

Close-up shot of a wiper blade.

The wiper’s framework and connections are also subject to wear, and they can get bound up or loose, causing the wipers to rattle, to skip, or to lose contact with the windshield. Former Popular Mechanics autos editor Mike Allen wrote about wipers in 2005, saying, “But by the time you need [wiper refills], the articulated arm itself is probably in bad shape, too. If it’s sticking, the blade won’t conform to the shape of the glass, leaving you with streaks or unwiped areas. Spring for a complete wiper blade.”

As we heard from all of the shops we interviewed, worn wiper arms can come loose or break, marring the windshield or damaging the wiper linkage or motor. That said, if you’re handy with auto parts, know what to look for when inspecting wipers, have some patience, and can find the right inserts, installing them remains a money-saving option.

How often should wipers be changed and what are signs they are going bad?

Most manufacturers recommend inspecting your wiper blades every six months for wear. Besides wear from exposure to the elements, the rubber component in a wiper blade deteriorates due to road debris, chemicals, climate and ozone exposure. Failures can be identified by excessive noise, streaking and chattering. If the rubber has started to tear apart from the blade it should be replaced immediately.

Is it sufficient to replace only the driver's side wiper?

It is recommended to replace the driver’s side and passenger’s side wipers at the same time for improved vision and increased safety. Do not forget to replace rear window wipers as well.

How do I find the correct wiper for my vehicle?

Consult the Bosch vehicle part finder for the correct part numbers for your vehicle. Most auto parts retailers carry Bosch premium wiper blades. Retail store counter personnel will be happy to help you with this question as well.

Why should I purchase Bosch wiper blades?

Bosch has been manufacturing electric windshield wiping systems for over 80 years. This knowledge of the entire wiping system helps Bosch understand what determines excellent wiper performance. The expertise from original equipment manufacturing goes into each replacement wiper we make. Offered at various price levels, Bosch wiper blades are available for virtually every vehicle on the road.

How difficult will it be for me to install my own blades?

Bosch wiper blades are designed with the do-it-yourself customer in mind. For most vehicle applications, the Bosch installation system allows for quick and easy one-step installation without having to deal with adapters.

What can I do to prevent snow and ice from clogging up my blades?

The best solution for the winter season is the beam blade. By design, beam blades are not affected by snow and ice build up. The enclosed tension springs help keep the blade flexible and effective in wintry conditions.

Some manufacturers offer a winter blade. However if the rubber boot over the blade should tear, the water can collect inside and freeze, causing the blade to become ineffective.

Do I need to clean my windshield before installing new wipers?

Windshield contamination is a common cause for poor wiper performance even if the wipers are still in good shape. Some kinds of contamination, such as tree sap, can destroy the wiping element in a short time. We recommend cleaning the windshield regularly with car wash soap as regular dish soap or hand soap can be corrosive to car paint.

What is the difference is between A/B/OE on ICON wiper blade packaging?

Bosch ICON blades use exclusive tension spring arcing technology to create a fit that is custom-contoured to the curvature of each side of the windshield. The correct blade for a particular vehicle is based on a combination of the blade length and the curvature of the windshield.

Driver side always has an “A” part number. Passenger side can have an “A” or “B” part number depending on the vehicle. Blades with a “B” part number have a greater curvature specifically designed to wrap around the passenger side window for greater visibility and clarity. Bosch continues its innovation and leadership with the ICON OE Multi-Clip connector, which offers a like-for-like OE replacement. The Multi-Clip features a flexible connector system, simplifying the installation process for all types of vehicles.

Reference the Bosch Wiper Blade catalogue or ask your auto parts professional for the exact part numbers for your vehicle.
