in my 88 560sl with the original stainless steel wipers.
1 buy 19 inch refills bosch number z-367
2. use a needle nose pliers and spread the end tab that is in the short slot on the old refill, the other end is longer
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
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.
