Seriously? Then you're doing something wrong. Like haus said, it takes 5 minutes.

Have you ever tried to change only the blade, i.e. just the rubber strip?

You have to perfectly align two metal guides that love to pop loose. Just annoying...

I have to agree with you, Nate. I had problems getting the blades installed right on my old 525i and every few weeks they'd need to be adjusted as they started to slide off the wiper arm. :rolleyes:

Then again, I feel sorry for you if you have my mechanical aptitude...I have a handyman at our house today doing some odd chores I'd rather not do. :p
