It looks as though they are a complete unit.

In the picture simply grip the clips either side of the blade and pull it away from the wiper blade arm, once out perhaps 45 - 90 degrees slide it off the lug holding it onto the wiper blade arm.

Installation is reversal, so attach it to the lug on the end of the blade arm and push it back to the original position where a click will be heard.

I couldn't see anything on the blade that indicates it can be replaced, even in the manual it says this is the correct way to complete a wiper blade replacement on the VE.
