    Does anyone know if there are any of the newer model aero wiper kits that will fit the rear screen of a B6 Avant, I only bought a new wiper before Christmas and its already not wiping the window the best, not that bad but just annoying.

    I got the front set changed to aero wipers from VAG parts but at the time they didn't seem to do a kit for the rear

    Cheers for any info

    I used to have a polo rear aero wiper (mk 6 IIRC) on my a3.
    I was a bit dubious about weather it would be big enough when buying it.
    It was easily big enough though and tidied the rear end up a treat.
    I got it off ebay for around £25 but it may be worth going to a Vw dealer to
    check their prices as they may be cheaper.
    I think the Mk5 golf one MAY also fit.
    Had a quick look on ebay and I think this is the same as the one i had,

    Hope this helps

    Is that much neater than an existing rear wiper arm then? Not £27 neater surely!

    Haha...maybe not, although I dont know what the wiper looks like on the avant,
    as mines a saloon it doesn't have one......if its anything like that of an 8l a3 though,
    it will be the best £27 you ever spent!!

    Your not wrong there mate!!.....but the polo one is slightly....and i mean slightly neater!
    The one on my old A3 was a shocker!!..
    Must say though I would be changing it....if I had one. Its the itchy feet thing of always looking for your next mod.
    It would be nice to have matching aeros all round aswell I think.

    The existing wiper arm is very neat, but I think the wiper itself doesn't wipe the window that well, I only replaced mine in November and its already leaving a 2" smear in the middle part of the wiper. The aero wipers on the front are brilliant, so I thought I'd give them a lash on the back, if I could.....and I think the aero wipers look more modern
