    Rear wiper conversion

    Evening,

    I was perusing another forum and there was some chatter about converting the rear wiper on a MK4 Golf to the rear wiper from a MK1 Fabia, I was wondering if anyone had tried it as I like the look of the wiper compared to the original Golf one. Also if anyone can tell me how to remove the wiper arm I might have a go at it myself

    Your wiper has these 3 parts on show and then the motor underneath



    you need to pull the small part pictured above off or at least lift it to the side as below





    then undo the nut 10mm/13mm approx???

    now comes the hard part (sometimes) or most of the times! you need a long flat strong screwdriver to leaver the wiper like





    you will be left with something like this



    fit the new one in reverse and hey presto

    most people just de-wiper them
