    Got both mine from gecleant - one with a custom logo on it. I just sent him a jpeg of what logo I wanted on the bung and got it made and posted out!

    Great service!

    pull the cap back to reveal a nut undo it then the wiper will come off might require abit of lube and alot of pulling tho. I had to get my mate to take the wiper off mine i couldent pull it off. Oh and obviouly you will have to take the motor out but just pull the plastic inner off there just pushed on and i think they have a few screws.

    yup. Looks dry as hell so get some releasing spray (wd40 etc) on there first and let it soak for an hour or so.


    then give it a eyes closed pull :)

    I had this problem, couldnt get it off for the life of me, i ended up having to hack saw it off from the base of the shaft, quite easy really.

    Oh btw dont use the one from venom it sticks out too much.

    Still it won't budge should I be pulling from the outside or the inside, if the inside how do you get the boot trim off? Cheers

    Get a heat gun and put it on for a few moments - might help release but generally just try giving it a good wiggle, a small bit of force from a flat headed hammer on the top and should free up nicely.

    Even just soak it in WD40 or the likes for a few hours.

    People who say that they will miss it are just scared to lose it

    Once it's gone, you get used to not having to use it

    Anyone got any more quality pics of this mod please? On a black A3 would be ideal thanks.

    My wiper is knackered (fluid leaking, lock & alarm probs) & trying to decide on getting it fixed or deleting.
