    I would love to know first hand if any of these work. My past searches on replacement blades seemed to turn up empty, but I got mine at the service center. Both blades cost $23 each (they try to charge you $20 in labor costs to put them on...lol no...)

    Just bought and installed a set of Bosch 19PUV and 26PUV wiper blades. They were $18 and $20 respectively at O'Reilly Auto Parts and they will install them for free. The blades look comparable in quality to the factory original blades.

    The B1903 and B2603 did not fit into the receiver of the wind shield wipers in my Tesla Model 3.

    PLEASE NOTE!!!

    The Bosch Spectrum DirectFit Beam Wiper Blades (Part numbers B1903 and B2603) did NOT fit into the wiper blade receiver on my Tesla Model 3. It appears the Bosch product selector may be in error, unless Tesla changed the blades they were using on the Model 3. I apologize for the misinformation.

    However, the Bosch PureVision Wiper Blades (Part numbers 19PUV and 26PUV) did fit. They were $18 and $20 respectively at O'Reilly Auto Parts and they installed them for free. The blades look comparable in quality to the factory original blades.

    Thanks much for this valuable info! I'm not really diggin' the wipers that came on the car. I mean, they're "ok" but leave trails of water on the windshield, as they sweep and then settle back in under the hood. It takes several additional pushes on the stalk button to finally clear all the water. When driving in rain, no issues but, washing, meh. Best wipers I've experienced: Lexus is250. Man, you could hit it to wash and clear the windshield and when it was done, perfect!

    I got the pair - they fit on my Model 3 just fine. I had to remove the installed adapter and put on the adapter that came with it - then remove "shim C" as shown in the video that was listed on a piece of paper that was in the package:

    My adapters were a little different but the basic concepts were the same. The wiper blades look the same as the Tesla ones, once installed. The rubber feels the same. Long term who knows, since it's currently $14 for the pair, I'm willing to try it out.

    :) I didn't have to break anything off - just removed an adapter for other kinds of wiper blades and put on an included one. Imagine that!

    Fantastic. And how are they working? I've not been happy with the OEM blades for quite some time but didn't want to switch them out since no other options existed that didn't involve a DIY modification of the adapters.

    Any silicone blades that work? Far better, never wear out or dry out...

    I've only had them on a day or two, but they stick to the windshield and wipe fine.

    Are they available anywhere else, besides the service center? If so, will they include the correct adapter?

    The ones I've been talking about are not Tesla original - they are made by some other company and I got them from Amazon.

    I would appreciate a link on Amazon to the blades you purchased. Are both sides 26 inches? Thanks.

    He said he paid $14 for the pair in his last post and didn't mention the brand. I don't see those in his earlier post.
