With 25k on the MKS, my wipers are getting to the point where they need replacing. I hadn't really looked at them before but it appears that you would have to buy them from the dealer as where they mount to the arm is not like any one I have seen before. Does any one have any experience with these?

Thanks, Paul

I'm replacing a Buick Enclave with an MKS, and the situation is similar. These new-generation blades are propietary to the manufacturer and can only be bought thru a dealer.
The good news is they are vastly superior tp the old style blades and last much longer.
Yoy can extend their life even further by frequently cleaning the wiping edge.

I went to my local Auto Zone Store, and saw Bosch wiper blades. I looked in their book, and saw that Bosch makes an "Icon" model blade for the 2009 MKS. They didn't have any of the model I would need. And, the person working said that they didn't think the blades would work due to the weird wiper blade holder. He said I should just buy them from my local Lincoln dealer. Anybody tried the Bosch blades?

My wipers were replaced with the proper size Bosch blades that I picked up from Autozone.  They even swapped them out for me for free, and they have stayed put, and work great.  Don't know why you would have to buy special ones through the dealer.

Just changed wiper blades. Car had the Trico "Force" style blades. Has an air deflector built in to the molded center section.Several auto parts places did not have the same style. Found a seller on Ebay & also found them at a local super Walmart. The wind deflector is supposed to help hold the wiper to the wind shield better. Comes with 2 adapters in pkg. My 2013 needed the "B" style.
