thats not totally true! U may need to trim a mm or two of the plastic cap as it can foul the glass and scratch! I trimmed mine with a junior hacksaw and it looks perfect!

U can but it off VAGPARTS website for about ?15 all in! thats where i got mine!

Ditto. If your getting them from a stealer, there are 3 parts - arm, blade & cap, all with part no's.

Foxy's web site had the no's, but i don't know if it's still up....

Yea il second what paulGT said, i had to take a few mills of the cup that fits over the water jet.

I did it gradually with a heavy file, constantly checking as i went, because it kept poping off when the wiper moved.

I trimmed mine by finding a smoothish paving slab and placing it on the slab. Just move it back and forth and there you go!

There is one small modification required to the cap for the wiper arm, s couple of mm's need shaving off to allow the cap to fit.

I fitted mine this morning and took 5 mins and an adjustable spanner.

I got the part numbers from Foxy's website.

Whatever works I suppose!

I used a stanley knife to do it.

Thats what I did with mine too [:D]

I recently bought the wiper blade for a Touran. It's about an inch longer than the polo one, but now it clears much more area now, including all of the Third brake light area (which makes it safer I guess).

Thanks guys.

Just ask for a polo rear wiper then ? I take it, it can be from a 04 model.

Also what is the part no for the areo wipers for front ????

would like to change the front also.

interesting! I may have to get one! i find mine judders and stops randomly really badly on the rear screen, whatever i put on the screen too! It does work fine after its left on intermittant for 15mins or so, perhaps its the motor!? [V]

Erm, I didn't have to make any modifications with mine - just took off the old one, popped on the new one - easy peasy. Nothing needed to be 'trimmed' at all...

Sounds like the motor is seizing up. Maybe u can get away with taking it apart and giving it a general clean up and lube?

You may find (like me) that the old wiper is a little seized on the splines. it has a ring of softish metal (brass or copper, I guess ?) that the splines bite into when you tighten the nut. Mine was a bit seized after six years.. just need to wiggle and waggle (whichever puts wind in your sails [:p]) it about a bit then it's straightforward from there.. [:)] A simple mod.. (even I can do it) and it tidies up the rear end a treat.

Hmmm. Okay chaps - which wiper do I have:

I see all of you guys saying you've got Polo wipers and needed to trim bits, but I didn't!

I ordered a Polo wiper from vagparts, and this is what I've got. No modification was required.

There is a simple reason why some of us had to trim the cap, and some didn't!

It's down to how the factory fitted the wiper motor onto the car. There is some tolerance to the way it's fitted, hence some of us find that the spline is a tad short, whilsts for others it's fine.

No big deal really, and nothing to worry about!
