Fitting Bosch Wipers

Anyone done this? Got some new ones in the post today, meant to be the right ones. Went to fit them and can see no way how the cap can go back over. I think it looks shat without the cap on so would rather find a way. Any ideas? If not I might have some bosch wipers for sale!

Yeah, wish I did now hah. I've emailed the seller asking if they sent the wrong one. Guess I will ask for a refund. Right pita. I'm sure other people use the bosch wipers though? I don't see how you can without leaving the cover off?

Hey I did too and there appears to much 'casing' around where the pivot is, about to e-mail the seller. Have you had any feedback? I've removed some of the casing on the blades but couldn't remove any more, the ones I got seem different to the pic on the site I bought from

Anyone tell me if their OEM passenger side is 16" or 17 1/2"

I asked dealer what price was and they quoted me 50

BMW OE wipers are the dogs danglies and are 30 for the front pair from a dealers.

They usually come out and fit them for you too.

Fitted Bosch blades to my car without a problem, only took a couple minutes per side with the mounts no thicker than the ones coming off .The covers clicked straight back on as OEM.
Sounds like you have the wrong blades, the correct Bosch part number is
A073S (Aerotwin)
Size wise, the box says drivers side 24" passenger 19"

Yep, did you all buy from Parts monster? I got sent AM19U (pass) AM24U (drivers) and the cover doesn't go back on. To be honest they fit without but as it is meant to be a retrofit item I find this unacceptable. I have emailed the buyer asking for a refund as they are not as described and have not had a reply in 3 days. If he doesn't reply to my next email (sent this morning) I will just open a paypal claim. Looks like I will have to order the other bosch ones or OEM. Such a pain!

Yep, Parts Monster was the seller, I e-mailed him yesterday, assume he won't respond until Monday.

I received AM16U (passenger) and AM24U (driver)

You sure on the 19" for passenger side? Mine are approx 2" too big, maybe the rake on the E90/E92 windows are different
