    hi all because off the poxy snow we have been having my rear wiper spring has snapped dont know why maybe because of the cold or because i put the wiper on when it was still frozen but anyhow the spring has snapped and doesnt really clear the rear window anymore so can i get a new spring from audi or is it a complete new arm from audi i was also thinking of updating it to the aero wiper as a few people have done on here is that worth thinking of doing

    Just take it off lad - plenty of visibility from the wing mirrors - I've taken the rear wipers off both my A3 and S3 over the last 3-4 years and have had no real issues with visibility - just keep it clean :)

    That's the same guy I ordered from... Quick delivery, can't complain. To get mine to fit I had to sand down the cap and the inside of the wiper arm in order to stop them rubbing on the rubber grommet on the window.

    Loose the wiper dude, you won't have any regrets especially if you use a glass sealant/polish which will keep the window clear and just sheet any water off

    If you think the one on the A3 is bad, next time you see a 1 series, have a look, its like something from the 80's!
