3. slide the old refill out
4. reuse the 2 long metal inserts out of the old refills
5. slide the new refill on while holding the metal inserts inplace(you need 3 hands)
6. use the needle nose pliers to squeeze the tab back into the small slot on the refill.

ten minute job and looks a lot better then the new after market wipers, no pics, but once you have the new refills you can figure it out
Kennedy,

I am having trouble locating a supplier for the rubber wiper blade. BOSCH Tech Siupport says they no longer make the rubber-only insert. Did you buy a BOSCH blade refil and modify it to fit the original steel blade holder? I appreciate your advice.
