I recently changed mine using a genuine Mercedes insert. Prior to that I had used a Bosch one. The Bosch insert was trickier as it came with only the rubber insert and I had to re-use the existing metal strips. However, the Mercedes insert came with the rubber wiper strip and the metal tension strips already in place and little yellow plastic snaps that were holding the whole thing together.

So I simply yanked the old rubber/metal inserts out and the new Mercedes one slipped in easily. As I slid it into place, the yellow clips just pop off. 45 second job. The Bosch insert took me a good 5 minutes...
