    I have a 2015 c class and need to change the wiper blades. I can see what looks to be a button on the wiper blade but cannot get it to budge. I don't want to force it in case I snap something I shouldn't. Also looking at buying Bosch replacements but have read they don't always come with the correct adaptors!!
    Any help appreciated

    Normally push the button in and the wiper arm should slide off, they can be a bit tight and need a wiggle but they are incredibly tough so I doubt you will do any harm unless you have arms like a gorilla.

    Mine is a 2016 E350 but I believe yours will be the same.

    Halfrauds will do them for you ( If you trust them) I know they stock the Bosch wipers, and from memory they are cheaper than their own brand ?.

    The Bosch Aerotwin or Valeo wiper blades are hard to beat.
    ECP have them with 35% off or pay a bit more and get Halfords to fit them.

    Rather than push the button in, you can swing the blade away from the arm, from the bottom. You will see the button disappear. You can then push up the plastic cap, end retaining bit and the blade will come out.
    To replace, insert the blade, push it towards the arm them slide the plastic bit back down to lock it in.

    Digressing slightly ..... I replaced the wipers on my car a few times due to the driver's side wiper juddering at speeds of 50mph +. I tried a few makes, OE and the Bosch from Costco, both of which were fine for a few weeks. I bent the wiper arm in a little to add more pressure to the screen which did help a little for a short time. In the end I replaced the arm entirely - sorted. :)
    ..... it really didn't want to part company with the taper spindle .... And all for £30-odd

    Thanks to everybody. My mate gets discount with Eurocar parts so will try them. Wish I'd bought the Michelin ones weeks ago when I was in Costco. Its a 60 mile drive so think I dropped a dogs dangly there.

    As I'm typing I've just seen the discount code below for Eurocar. DOOOHHHH
