It slides off, but it takes a bit of force. It's designed to come off and clip onto either side, depending on whether you have a LHD or RHD car that uses that type of windscreen washer. The illustration on the back of the box shows someone removing it and fitting it on the other side with their bare fingers, but I was much too feeble to do that.
Thanks for clarifying in plain English. I am hopeless at following those hieroglyphics they print as "instructions" :)

Bought Bosch SP set for qashqai from Europarts about a month ago SP 26S & SP16; but found a gap left on bottom of screen and the passenger side sweep is too low.
Interesting to read that an 18 inch blade will work for the passenger side. Is that OK - a 2 inch bigger size? Just want to check before I purchase a single one in replacement.
Also it seems a 28 inch would be OK for driver side as well, but would that work with an 18 inch passenger side also.
being tall we miss the larger sweep
after a search I ordered a Bosch SP 18 inch via Amazon. through Euro Car Parts. At £5.49 , it was even cheaper than ordering on line to collect at their place locally! & free delivery, came today via DHL, fitted OK. Usual very difficult to fit, just have to grip the sides and push. Didn't forget to put a thick blanket over the windscreen just in case.

Finally got mine this morning (so much for the Monday/Tuesday delivery). Anyway I have just fitted them and they went on fine. Managed to remove those washer thingys by pulling slightly towards me at the same time as sliding across as it looks like there is a little black piece of plastic that acts as a stop so it wont just slide.

Right ... just need some rain now so I can test them ;-)

i am very satisfied with the original wiper blades. i have them 4.5 years and are good as new no lines etc.
From the greek http://qashqaiforum.gr/thread/138i found out that the car's oem wiper blades are mitsuba and nissan does'nt sell only the rubber inserts.
But honda does.
The honda product codes for our car are 76622-STK-A02 (driver LH), and 76632-SWA-J02 (passenger LH)
