I bought Bosch replacement blades for my 1997 and they work great. I got them at PepBoys.

Just take your old ones off when you get there and bring them inside so you can insure you get the right length.

Now don't slide out the rubber piece, but remove the whole bow assembly (but not the control arm!)

New one pops right into the hook and snaps into a locked position. If I'm not mistaken, I had to remove a plastic locking gismo off the Bosch to fit my wiper control arms.

The passenger side is curved and the driver's side is about 1/2" shorter. I buy the 22" refills and cut the driver's side.
