Glen, I've recently fitted a polo rear wiper to my Mk4, the dealer storeman said they are the same that go on the Mk5 Golf. Not too sure if he's right but the wiper fits a treat and so easy to fit. The part numbers if you need them are.
He is right, Steve.. mine looks exactly the same as the Mk5 rear wiper. I ordered the polo wiper, it's the same part. It tidies up the back end a treat. I'm certain it does fit with rear spoilers.. I think it's the A4/Fabia one that has problems with spoilers.
Dead easy to fit too Glen.. lift off the hinged cap,(you may need to squeeze the cap to unclip the clips.. bit like a bottle of white spirit that you have to squeeze), undo the nut.. you may have to twist it a little as it has a ring of softish metal that bites into the splines on the shaft and may be a little seized. Once it's off, put the new wiper assembly over it.. tighten the nut so the metal bites into the splines, then replace the cap and your done.
