If I were doing this mod again I'd be inclined to try a wiper off a new shape A3 instead of the Fabia wiper I fitted. Same style as the Fabia, but looks shorter so you won't have any trouble with it catch the tailgate/spoiler.
Ive got a New A3/S3 Wiper on mine and i think it looks really tidy. same as A4 but slightly shorter and neater looking (actually slightly shorter than the original wiper by about 1cm.)
it fitted straight on but have you guys noticed with A4/Skoda wipers that they dont actually sink right down the spline until nearly touching the window? and you are left with a nearly 1cm between the glass and the base of the wiper cap? or is this just a problem with New A3 wipers.
NOTE! also the water jet is different on A3 wiper so some DIY inside the cap is required to work properly!
Can you elaborate on the DIY in the cap? That jet part is available as a spare part at the dealer. I notice the Audi A3 has twin jets that rotate with the blade on the new wipers. Is that still connected/functioning?
