    i bought the Bosch icon on the understand they would fit my 2016 Prius.
    My oem blades were chattering on the windshield and not doing a good job.

    Does anyone know how to replace? Do I need an adapter to make them fit?

    and welcome to Prius Chat
    I'm sorry, but I think the Bosch blades won't work on the Prius. As far as I know, the blades are permanent and only the rubber inserts can be changed. No doubt someone will offer a solution if you hang on for a while as this is a very helpful forum.

    The Bosch Icon blades do work fine on a Prius. You do not need an adapter.

    Denso makes the OE .. they are high quality. Get the replacement inserts .. I never toss the wiper blades on my Japanese cars.

    Try cleaning the windshield glass, and the wiper blades, with a heavy-duty automotive glass cleaner.

    It's puzzling to hear of near-new car owners changing wiper blades; our 2010, build date Aug 09, 66,000 km's, still on original blades. More northern climate and usually garage parked are factors too, I guess.

    Are you sure they fit. Gen 4 Prius? The one listed in your profile is Gen 3.

    Your Toyota dealer should be able to get the correct items.

    I'm so confused about this as well... Looks like my factory wiper blades are crapping out after a year up here in the north east. Has anyone been able to get a complete set from Bosch? I only see the long 28" blade as compatible on Amazon...

    I own a 2010 Prius and for the record Bosch Icon 26A & 19B were purchased by me and successfully installed without any difficulty or issue.

    I know this thread is pretty old but because it’s being linked to from Google it’s usually the first one seen.

    I hope whoever sees this will be benefited.

    But you have a 2010 Prius and this thread is about the newer generation 2016 & newer. There were major design changes. It does not even look like the same car.

    This gen4 is my third Prius and I always ask the guys at the authorized Toyota service to switch the blades (every 2 years).
    So if you change, don't throw the OEM ones away, if you want them later.

    IMO they last far longer than Bosch or Valeo that they sell here.
    Haven't had them changed on this gen4 yet though.

    In europe you can order these Bosch ones from Germany that should fit gen4 according to the site.
    BOSCH Scheibenwischer Aerotwin 700mm & 400mm A158S
    Called Bosch Aerotwin A158S here. It's a set with both front wipers.

    They seem to be in short supply for gen4 here. The stores here in Finland have them listed but nobody has them "on the shelf".

    Here people are told to clean the wiper blades with antifreeze wiper fluid (-30C) a couple of times a year and that's what I do also (Just put a little bit of it on some kitchen paper and gently clean the blades with that).
    (If you don't have that a good single malt scotch might work also ;).)

    The ones on gen3 definately do not fit gen4.

    I like Bosch. They seem to last much longer. Drove around to 4 stores today trying to find Bosch wiper blades that will work on my 2016. The Bosch attachment is wrong. Auto parts guy even tried switching the attachment, no luck. Even ordered a pair online from Amazon. They won't attach. Damn Prius... why so complicated?!

    I hate to buy the cheap Toyota rubber, but maybe that's the answer. The rubber split after only a year.
    (How does Mendel get 8 years out of an air filter & wiper blades??? :ROFLMAO: My filters are filthy after 12 months.)
