I got the ones Rich links to on redpants.lol, but the connector is completely different. Does the connector itself need to be swapped over?

New blade should have directions for the hook type arms and just follow directions, I just replaced one today.

The wiper mount on the car is not the hook type, though... it has the square retaining clip.

I had the same problem with my Range Rover, couldn't find aftermarket blades that fit. Ended up with OEM ones. They are the same square mount with the button in the center.

I pulled off the outer piece that the Bosch came with and then it was the same. Passenger side does not fit tight against the windshield. Tried to pairs of Icons and same result. Had difficulty putting the old OEM passenger side back on. Was nervous and tried to swap the old driver's side and that worked... Waiting for the OEM's to arrive.
