Don't know if it helps but when I requested a price for wiper blades from Bowker Preston they told me that on purchasing the blades they'd fit them free of charge for me. I haven't bought them yet so can't tell you how its done but I'm assuming its quite easy considering they will do it for nowt.

Pretty easy. The instructions on how to change them are on the back of the packaging.

There is a small tab on the underside of the plastic cover (at the end of the arm) you need to push in and you can then remove the plastic bit holding the wiper blade. Then just tilt the wiper blade 90 degrees and it slides out of the pin holding it. Insert new blade and refit plastic cover.

Easy job, 5 minutes tops!

Be very careful removing the plastic covers they break easily.

the PIA part is getting the plastic covers off, so you can actually get the wipers off
