    Mk4 Golf aero blade size (Sorry if already covered)

    Hi all,
    I recently picked up a bit of a bargain off eBay. Front aero wiper arms from a Mk4 Golf for £22 delivered.
    Now my problem is, I bought the standard size wipers, (21" and 19") but the passenger side is fouling on the black plastic trim down the side of the windscreen.
    Will just fitting an inch smaller blade fix this? Everyone elses that I've seen don't seem to have this problem.

    This might clear it up if I wasn't.



    Thanks everyone.
    -Callum.

    The genuine Bosch short blade is offset... guessing yours is in the middle... I had this with a set of replacement blades myself...

    I ended up just cutting a small bit out the blade which will do until I can buy a genuine set...

    Cheers tuffty, that's what I did at first, just to stop it catching. Looks like it'll have to do for now, more important things to be paying for.
    Thanks again mate.
