    I am wondering too. I need a new set. I am thinking that you could match them up at AutoZone or the like but I don't know the size.

    The blade refill or the entire wiper blade (that connects to the arm)? I use 20" Bosch refills, usually Napa has them in stock but since all of my cars use the same, I tend to order them in groups of 10. I had tracked down a few replacement blades in the past but since they were missing the aerofoil, I never purchased them.

    I purchaced new wipers (complete) this weekend but they do not have the aero wing on them. Is it possible to get just the blade refils? I have the old blades with the areo wing. If yes anyone have a part number or store that you can order from - online?

    I just carefully took out the blades from my old wiper arms - actually an easy process.

    Next time, just get the refills...cost is about 1/2.

    Outstanding - are the Bosch refills or another brand? Do you have a part number?

    Just call NAPA...and yes, as I have mentioned before, they are Bosch refills. Mine are 20's but then again, I have a T Cab so I don't know what is required for your car.

    Just got off the phone with NAPA - they only have trico refills - ordered 2 sets to see if they fit.

    Anyone have a part number / source for the actual Bosch refils?

    Mike from Bosch just called back:

    Bosh part number for a complete set of the 500mm blades including the aero wing is: 3 397 118 561

    Refills only part number: 3 391 014 603 - he said there is some footnote that they may need to be shortened

    NAPA will not recognize numbers - He said to have local NAPA outllet call thier NAPA distribution center - The distribution center can run the Bosch number to get pricing and availability and special order.
