W211 Wiper Blade Refill Sources?

Looking for other than MB dealer, yet still high-grade quality of product source(s) for windshield wiper blades, specific to the W211, E320 CDI?

I ordered Bosch ICON blades from a well-known, Seattle-based online retailer and they have been great since installation in May. Will see how they perform in winter conditions here in the Northeast.

Same for my W123's Bosch blades.

I've ordered the Bosch from worldpac retailers. It's the same as the factory blade, think it's the Icon model. Works great. Lasts about two years in DFW. Just now need to replace them on my last remaining w211 now that it's raining a bit in Dallas.

Another option is the VALEO 900 Series 900265B (900-26-5B). I previously tried a set of VALEO Gen2 (SL26) and
Mercedes blades (211-820-29-45), but had noise issues with both.

I tested the 900's in the rain today with no issues (no skipping or missed areas and low/no noise). They are
lower profile/thinner then the current W211 replacement Mercedes blades (Mercedes has updated the design
several times) and have an original factory style (not universal) side lock attachment.

A pair of genuine wiper blades at the dealer are like $34 wholesale for a 211, did the CDI and the E55 this week. Why waste your time trying to refill them

Because my dealer charges $55/pair to pay for their fancy new building! The mail order Bosch stuff aren't refills, they are the same complete blade as the OEM stuff.

Precisely why I steered clear of the MB House too.

Title of the thread is "refill"

Fair enough $55 is a ton, time to find a better parts guy!

OK, are there directions on how to R & R the blades / wipers somewhere?


*Also - my engine compartment hood's, twin gas shocks are weak. How about the where of getting replacement gas shocks for them too?

Thanks for any help!!

Something like this -
1. Open hood to vertical position
2. Lift wiper arm away from glass as high as it goes (which is why the hood is opened, it blocks the wiper arm if closed)
3. Rotate wiper blade 90 degrees from arm.
4. Slide wiper blade off mounting pin.
5. Installation is the reverse...

Excellent tutorial, Jim!

Do you know if changing the hood's gas struts are done at the full-open/upright and locked position of the hood too?
