    How easy are these to replace? Is it a tricky job or could anyone have a go at it?

    Very easy.

    Put wipers in service position.

    Bonnet up, scuttle panel off, 2 T25 screws and pull out.

    Pretty easy. Its bonded quite well to the windscreen so you may have to give it a good tug ;)

    No idea about the linkages I'm afraid mate.

    My Advice is to purchase one of these:

    wiper removal tool | eBay

    Its a wiper removal tool and it makes the job 10x easier and you will have it for the future. For the scuttle panel make sure you pull it 'up' from the corners and not towards the front of the car. You will be able to see it peeling away soon as you see it slowly pull it away from one end to the other. For the linkages etc a simple socket set will suffice.


    I would advise on buying a second hand motor as they can be quite pricey. If not contact Jb0o im sure he can supply you one from Audi.

    jb0o I've sent you a PM but it's not showing in my sent messages so apologies if it has been sent a few times. If not how much could you get me one for? Are you in Hartlepool, per chance?
