Bosch Icon wiper blades part numbers for 2016?

Recommended Posts

I have used bosch icons for years and had them on many vehicles including my last edge, an '09.

now it seems like it's impossible to find the right blades of any brand. i bought a set of Bosch Icon 28A and B, supposedly A for the driver's side and B for the passenger's side. The clips weren't the same as on the car. The wiper arms are basically like a stick. no U-shaped hook at the end like the old ones. I took them back no problem but now i'm wondering if the 28AOE and BOE will work. i'm not sure. and on top of that, the store only carries the AOE and no BOE. they are asymetric so i can't (shouldn't) put the same one on both sides.

 

here's the funny business:

  • the bosch website states only the 28BOE is for the 2016 edge but they're asymetric
  • the packaging clearly shows A for driver's side and B for passenger side.
  • a local car part chain's website states: A type blades for U - hook style arms and B type blades are for pin arms and flat blades which is totally BS

I don't want to order from amazon in case i get the wrong blades and they don't fit.

 

has anyone here bought bosch icons? if so, what part number fit on your 2nd gen edge?

I'm also keen to hear what Bosch Icon blades work, although I'm real happy with the OEM ones and will most likely get them off Amazon when the time comes for replacement.

Amazon lists the 28AOE and BOE for the Ford Edge.

 

hah, interesting. amazon.ca doesn't!!! i should have looked at the .com site.

 

so here is my report. i was anxious to get new blades so i went to one of the big chains (canadian tire for anyone who's interested) and i bought a 28AOE. they don't carry the BOE though because they are idiots.

 

it fit! since the "spoiler" part is meant for the driver's side, i couldn't buy two AOE models. so i went to another store where they carried both AOE and BOE but their price is nearly double. $28 at CT (remember, canadian pesos) vs $53 at the other place. so i just bought the BOE there. i complained to the person helping me and they brought the price down to $44. so my average price was $36.

 

As an additional note to any other potential buyers who can only find one side or the other, i have a sneaking suspicion that one could pull the clip off of the blade and turn it around to make it work for the opposite side. I didn't try it but when it comes time to replace these ones, i'll try to take them apart, that way if i break them then it won't matter. i didn't want to risk breaking a brand new one.

 

So there you have it, the Bosch Icon windshield wipers that fit my 2016 Edge are 28AOE (driver's side) and 28BOE (passenger's side.)

 

BTW, the blades are great. they are smooth and quiet and they leave the glass absolutely clean and streak free. let's see how long they last.

I know this is a little late to reawaken this thread, but I have a 2017 FORD EDGE Titanium AWD 3.5L V6 and I bought those 2 exact wipers. Bosch icon 28AOE (drivers side) and 28BOE (passenger side) and for me they don't seem to click in perfectly like the ones that came with my edge. They go in but not a hard flush tight click like you usually get. There is a nail gap between metal and plastic that isn't there with the other wipers that where already on the edge when I bought it. So I'm just wondering,  is this normal?
