Dealership.

If this is still the original you can just replace the Blades.

Wiper blades hasn't changed its design for decades. It's a U shape hook.

If you can't do this yourself, just buy one from a stealership and they SHOULD install it free of charge. Can't guarantee if they will roll their eyes at you.

The Dealership would be glad to sell you wipers and even put them on for you. Also Partsource will sell you wipers and install them for you.

Not on a VW, it isn't. There is a button that you press to release the mechanism, and the blade slides off along the axis of the wiper arm.

It is not worth going to CT for them, just get them at the dealer. You will save at most $2 at CT per blade, sooo not worth it.

All blades are made out of the same material. It is just a question of whether it is a beam type or not. Get the beam type.

Don't replace the rubber alone; get a new blade. Your wipers are a piece of safety equipment. Never skimp on wiper blades or tires.
