It comes with a 3/16 x 6 inch screwdriver (at least that's what the one that came with mine measures)--if you've lost that you'll need to find one like it. There's a hole on the top of the handle in front--put the screwdriver in that hole and unscrew the screw until the blade comes loose enough to twist 90 degrees and come out, then when you put the new blade in you reverse the process and tighten the screw.

1581 is still listed in the current catalog. If yours uses a button then I'd bet that it's a 1584 or 1587.
Incidentally there's an IPB at http://www.ereplacementparts.com/bosch-1581vs-0601581534-jig-saw-parts-c-128_1098_3098.html and the last item on the list is the special screwdriver, which you can order for $4.50 and shipping, but it's a special order item which they say takes 2 weeks.
