    Rear wiper repair/mod?

    My rear wiper seems to have gone floppy and has started hitting the paintwork on the boot lid. Anyone know how to straighten it? It seems the link between the blade and the boss has got some play in it, anyone have the same problem?

    Also whilst on the same subject has anyone fitted the aero wiper which is a really popular mod on mk4 golfs, polos, fabias, Lupos etc? I think it uses the current Passat estate blade? Never seen it on an A3 so I assumed it doesnt fit!

    Where the spring connects to the wiper there is a small plastic clip - this has broken so you need a replacement - I think they are around 14 from audi from memory!

    IMO remove it and the motor and put a bung in - you don't necessarily need the rear wiper and the car looks a lot better without it.

    Yeah thanks for that, i'll take a look, probably the weight of the snow has snapped it!

    It does annoy me when i hit reverse and it comes on smudging the dirt forcing me to squirt it.
