You need a long shafted flat head screwdriver that fits into the hole in the handle above the blade. Then simply loosen or tighten the screw inside there, and the blade twists 90 degrees and will pull completely out. Reverse to install. Also see pg 7 of instruction manual (click here.)
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

I bought used Bosch-1581-vs, unfortunately parts are missing required to secure the blade. Would you be able to tell me part numbers I need to buy? Thank you in advance.


The only clamp part you need is 2603400000 . It may be down in the shaft already. You need a thin flathead screwdriver to stick in the hole at the front of the handle. This is the bosch part number for their screwdriver for this jigsaw JA1001 .

BLADE CHANGING


What's the model number of that saw?
If it's one of the old ones, a 1581 VS or some such, you need a long thin flat-head screw driver that fits through the hole in the top of the handle and reaches down far enough to unscrew (loosen it) the set screw that holds the blade locked in place. Then you twist the blade 90 degrees (perpendicular to the direction of cut), and pull it out. Reverse process for installation, making sure before you tighten the blade it rides in the groove on the guide bearing below.
If that doesn't seem like it's the correct sequence for your saw I apologize.
The Bosch website won't accept any 10 digit tool product numbers due to some glitch in the system, and they made so many variations on that saw it'd make your head spin.
That's the other way some of them loosen up, actually, is by pulliing up the plastic head at the top of the handle and unscrewing it a few turns to loosen the blade.,, Vice versa for install..
Hope this helps a bit!
