Bosch Icon wiper blades?

Thu Nov 18, 2021 3:01 pm

Has anyone used Bosch Icon wiper blades? I just bought some for my 2017 eGolf, but they don't fit.

Bosch says the 2017 eGolf uses their Icon 18OE and 26OE blades, but the ones I bought will not slide and snap into place. The problem seems to be that the Bosch installation video indicates that the inside dimension of the end of the wiper arm should be 19mm, but mine measures 19mm at its outside dimension. The inside dimension is about 15mm.

Thanks for any help.

Not sure if these are Bosch Icon blades, but I bought Bosch 5G1998002 wiper blade set and they work just fine for about half the price of the VW blades.

Yes to this - bought mine from FCP Euro. From reading around these which are called "AeroTwin" are basically Icons but with a different name for German OE. These blades are fantastic and way cheaper than the Genuine VW blades.
