    If your aero wipers not wiping as well as before, save your self a bit of cash and get a wiper kit from your local dealer.
    I'm not sure if theses are available for all aero wipers but they do fit the Passat wipers.

    First, Get your aero wipers and the wiper blade kit (Part No, 1K0 955 429)

    Second, Pull the ends off.

    Thirdly, With the ends off, you want to find this clip and bend it up so you can pull the rubber blade out.

    Fourth, With the ends off take the old the blades out and give the unit a good clean.

    Fifth, put the new blades in, crimp the clamp down again and put the ends on.

    You don't have to do the next steps but I did cause I'm obsessed with plasti dip.

    six, put the wipers in your spray booth.

    seven, Cover in plasti dip and enjoy
