    Hi

    Im new on here and looking for a single wiper conversion for my A3 1.8T.

    I have found the kit for the TT but as above an finding it difficult to get anyone to tell me if the TT kit will fit a A3.

    Other option i was thinking if anyone can tell me does the MK4 Golf have the same wiper mechanism as a A3?

    Thanks in advance for any further info.

    I looked into this a while ago, and didn't bother in the end.

    The stock wiper motor would be modified to give you a single wiper activation I reckon, but it'd be fiddly.

    Be clocking the drive arm round, you could get the wiper to part vertically up the screen, and give a reasonable sweep across on the standard length arm.

    if you wanted full coverage and a larger sweep area, you could achieve this by shortening the actuating arm at the wiper end, as the shorter arm would give a greater sweep from a given motor input. This in theory could be made to park vertically or at the bottom depending on your preference.
