Bosch Icons work on 5-door?

My aunt has asked me to get her replacements for her 2012 5-door hatch Focus.

I know the wipers open in the "opposite" direction, not like most other normal cars.

In the past I have purchased either the Valero or Bosch wipers, which she has always liked. I noticed the Valero require 2 different part numbers because of this opposite opening. I think that is because they have the little spoiler on them to keep the airflow correct, and if you put the driver blade on the passenger side the spoiler will be upside-down and will not work correctly.

My question is, will the Bosch Icon work on the Focus or do they also have this issue with the opposite opening? They don't seem to indicate you need a different part number, but I wonder if I'm just missing something or if this upside-down spoiler thing doesn't apply with the Bosch Icon like it applies to the Valero?
