In the handle directly over the blade is a deep hole. You insert a long thin bladed screw driver into this hole all the way down. Twist slowly and it will locate with a screw. Undo the screw and then twist the remaining piece of blade 90 deg and pull. Replace new blade in the opposite way. Twist it so that the cut is to the front and then tighten up the screw. Do not tip up the unit while doing this as the screw might drop out and you might loose it

Testimonial: "thanks.did the trick.use you again thanks"
There's an exploded diagram of a similar model here. Don't let it confuse you though. I mention it, because it shows the clamp screw which hold the blade in place (35 on the diagram).
Unplug the saw before you change the blade.
In the handle directly over the blade there is a hole with a clamp screw at the bottom. Use a long thin blade screw driver to loosen the clamp screw.
Once the clamp screw is loosened, twist the blade about 90 deg and you should be able to pull it out (don't cut yourself, by accident)
Put the new blade in with the same orientation and twist so the blades are facing the front of the saw.
Tighten up the clamp screw and you're good to go.
Be careful not to tip your saw over while the screw is loose. If it falls out and you lose it they're a bit of a nuisance to come by.

Pull up the knob on the front at the top of the machine and push the yellow bit forward. Theoretically you should turn the knob anticlockwise three turns but it doesn't seem to make any difference on my one. Then take hold of the blade, ease it forward and turn through 90 degrees. You should then be able to pull it out. Replacement is, as they say in all the best manuals, a simple reversal of the procedure. When you are turning the knob clockwise this time it's supposed to click in place but my one doesn't do this and still seems to work.
Best of luck

I couldn't find that specific model number Bosch saw, but here is the link to get user manuals from Bosch in case you mistyped it.
(It's a long link that wouldn't all fit here, so I had to put a carriage return in it)
Or they may have a similar saw under a new model number. Here's the current model number of a very popular saw that has a less-than-obvious blade changing method 1587avsk
