David,

if you have removed the rear wiper motor and don't want to keep it, I might take it off your hands [?].

I think i know the guy whom had the grommets, i'll do a search.......

It's knackered internally. I remember that post but can't find it.

When doing this "de-wiper" mod, how much of the motor mechanism do you have to remove? and how difficult is it? im not against a bit of DIY but i know VW can 'over engineer' parts of the car.. (if anyone has taken their doorcards off to reveal loads of bolts and metal sheeting will know what i mean!) Its just that i live in the lake district and although its endless empty A/B Roads make for the UKs best Automotive Playground, it also P*sses down all the time during winter months and i might not like not having a wiper and want to stick it back on. can i just remove the Spline that the wiper bolts onto, or is it a full motor/arm/mechanism out job??

cheers

When I took the rear wiper off of my 306, I replaced it with a grommet from a Pug 106.

They are specifically made for this purpose - the earlier lower model 106's didn't come with a rear wiper.

The grommet is a 3 piece solid plastic thing, with the blank on one side, a rubber washer and a bit that screws securely on the back to stop it from coming apart.

Did the job perfectly and only cost me about ?3 from local Pug parts desk.

I can post up a pic if u would like...

Go to B&Q. They sell the right size and you get 10 in a pack for about ?1.

Anyone know what the correct size is, save me removing it before going to buy a grommet!
