Packaging shortcut causes confusion
on March 25, 2012
The Bosch ICON & Marathon blades are very good blades. Just be aware that the Bosch "OE" blades 20OE, 22OE, 24OE, 26OE, etc] will not fit any vehicle with a J-hook type of arm. For those you need just the plain 20, 22, 24, 26, etc.
What causes this confusion is that the instruction sheet that Bosch includes in the package also includes instructions for the J-hook style arm. One would assume then, that these blades do adapt to a J-hook arm, right? Wrong. It's just a cost cutting measure by Bosch to send along the same instuction sheet for ALL types of arms for ALL of their blade models. Pretty dumb decision on their part. I played around with these a long, long time trying to make them fit until I contacted Bosch and was informed they were the wrong blades. An accurate instruction sheet would have prevented all of this.
Good blades though.
