    B7 Aero arms and blades will fit straight on. I can dig out the part number if you like, or a quick Google should reveal it.

    Another newb over here.

    Are the B7 wiper arms of better quality finish?
    I ask because the paint/lacquer on my wiper arms has peeled/flaked off revealing the metal underneath. I've already attempted a repair, but this hasn't really worked and looks pretty poor.

    If the B7 arms are of better quality, then I'll go for them rather than a straight replacement.
    Any part numbers would be welcome, cheers.

    B6 wiper arms are prone to corrosion and the paint peeling, I resprayed mine to good effect and know several other's have. I don't know if the Aero arms are coated differently, but the paint seems much more robust.

    Part numbers for Aero arms are:

    8E2955408C - OS WIPER ARM
    8E2955407C - NS WIPER ARM
    4B2955425C - AERO BLADES.

    OK... so if I'm right in saying TPS are Trade Parts Specialist, how the hell do you order from them? They don't seem to have an online shop.

    They can be a bit funny about selling to retail customers, I always ring them first and order the parts. Very rarely do they ask who I am, just requesting payment if it's a non-stock item, then when I turn up to collect they've no choice but to let me in.

    If they get funny on the phone just do some creative thinking, they won't turn business away I'm sure.
