Bosch aero blades upside down



  BMW M140i
i have just got my aero blades from amazon and they were here when i came in this evening so havent had chance to fit them but from what i can see it looks as if they will be upsode down.

is there a way to change the clip so it is the other way up or my my blades correct anyway i have bosch aerotwin ar530s blades.
 
yeah you should be able too. think you can take the ends of and slide the rubber blade out, switch it around, and then clip them back on. should say.

right i got the ends off but couldnt work out how to move the centre bit so i just changed the aerofoil around it doesnt slot together properly but it is not really noticable

Did you get generic x inch blades, or a clio specific pack ?

Remember that the Clio's wiper swing goes the wrong way to most UK cars......

Doesn't look upside down to me they look correct ? The 'U' bend bit on ur arm goes through the bit you have lifted up in the first pic then it goes around the clip underneath then you close it.

Have you taken ur old wiper off yet to see what it's like? If you so that it will make sense

They are the correct way already, Clios sweep right to left,

I will say though, how the visibility was massively increased with them, When wiping you get wind noise and they dont last long

From what I can see they will fit fine. I had the same issue at first with one set of Aerotwins but then swapped them for the set you have and they were the correct way around.

i made this mistake, ordered the moff ebay claiming they would fit a clio but as said the clios have the LHD type wipers :(

i just got them on backwards lol they still work
