Goodyear wiper blade is on sale at Costco

$7.99 and you get one for free (that's like $4 each folks), only good for two weeks I think. Compare to $15 for each on Amazon.

The easiest is to look at their fitment guide book (available by the bin at Costco to check for make/year/model of your car), at least for my X5 they fit perfectly. BTW these are Goodyear Assurance blades which comes with different length from 16" to 24" so if you pick the correct size for your car no cutting etc.

Don't waste your money. They are garbage, less than a month old and rubber separated from the spine.

Really? I have these on a ML430, been on for a year. They've been great.

I have the '03 X5. Bought the 24" (model 765-24). But my problem is that the wiper adapter slips into the u-hook no problem, but it won't stay. Supposedly there should be a "click" to latch the blade in (as shown in the one page installation guide, section A for hook arm).
One user in another thread said he had to bend the hook to make it stay. But I kinda don't want to "cut feet to fit the shoes".
How did you manage to make it fit your X5? Do you remember there was a "click" to latch the blade in?
