OK peeps what are the options on a MK4 for the rear wiper??

I'll start the list:

Polo

Fabia

Think there's some Audi ones but not sure which.

Pics would be good too [:D]

Cheers

Hi mate, ive fitted the skoda/audi arm, this allows you to clear a roof spoiler, if you have one, and is just a bit smaller than the original golf one, heres a pick on my car:

Shag, the part numbers are:

skoda wiper arm, 6y6955707

skoda wiper cap 6y6955435

audi wiper blade 8e9955425c

audi wiper arm 8e9955407c

It does work out expensive as you need the above parts.I like it though![:D]

I prefer the Polo/Golf Mk5 aerowiper:

It's so easy to fit too.. literally (asuming the wiper comes straight off) you could do it in just about 1 minute ! and it looks so much better too ! And works great.. mine was in constant use on the way to work this morning.

Tylerama - is it a straight swap? I'm going to order one from VAG parts, but want to check it's an easy swap (not being very good at car DIY [:I] )

Yup.. it is straight on. Squeeze the cap a bit to release the caps.. that hinges back.. then you can get at the nut. once this is off you may have to twist it a bit as it has a soft metal ring that bites into the thread/splines of the shaft.. this may be a little seized and difficult to loosen.. but it will eventually come off. Then just put the new one on, tighten the nut, replace the cap.. eh voila !

I've got MK5 on mine, you have to file the cap down a little to clear the window, but its easy to sort with an emery board. You'll also have to break a little tab off inside, or it'll pop off when it it rotates. Time to do & fit, 10min max[:)]

?17 from the stealers[:)]

yeah I had to file the base of the cap down aswell, didn't have to break off a tab though. never had a problem with mine and it clears the screen much better

Jace - I've got a 52 plate that doesn't have the aero wipers, I think late 2002-03 did have them. I noticed you've got them on a 03 plate do you think they'll be an easy fit on mine? (I like to have a nice clean screen and if they're better than i'll get some)

I dont know if there worth the ???? to buy aftermarket, maybe some others would like to comment, I think they're serious coin though for some wipers....but good too.
