    Bought an S4 Avant at the weekend and the rear wiper was limp and after looking at it tonight it broke off. I cant get the fecker of the spindle so I'll cut it off and get a replacement.

    Do most people just fit the standard OE part or anyone tried and alternative?

    There was mention of the Aero wiper off the back of a Polo fitting, but I can't remember the exact details.

    Personally I'd just fit the same again, I think its quite tidy whilst sill being aggressively chunky.

    You want one of these chaps link
    or with buy it now here
    I had the same with my A4 (although my missus tried to use the old one as a grab handle). the arm came off but left a small doughnut of metal that I had to cut off (need to be careful to avoid cutting the spindle).

    Thanks fellas. I have to admit I prefer the original one to that as well. Will try the stealers and get a price.
