On the 960 the scoop is mounted to the arm and not the blade assembly
so changing the blades not affect this.
If the old blade gholders were OK and it was just the rubber that
needed replacing you might be able to disassemble and remove the
rubber from the new blade an install it in teh old one... That's what
I have done with some cars.
