They are motorcraft blades but not the premium. They sell for about $25 for the pair so you may be able to get them cheaper with a coupon. The blades for the car are the frameless ones.

Yea they said my coupon wouldn't work, but he'd check to see if those blades fit. otherwise the 2802 & 2803 are $17.48.

The Rain-X site has a nice page that actually shows the different types of wiper connections: http://www.rainx.com/installation-in...-wiper-blades/

The 2012-2013 Foci use the I&L connector and use a style of blade known as a 'beam blade', while prior models use a J-hook connector. For random trivia, the metal part of a traditional wiper blade that distributes pressure is called a whippletree.

I'll take random car trivia for $200, Alex!

So put the OE blades from the dealer on the car last night. 2802 Driver Side and 2803 Passenger Side. It's the clips that are the same, but the fin on top of the blade that are different. They angle different ways... I guess aerodynamically????
