Right guys, so I have the wipers seizing up and know it’s a common issue, tbf they are now close to 21 years old so done well

however, trying to source a new linkage arm kit is proving absolutely impossible for my b6 avant!? I can find thousands of LHD versions but not a single RHD version anywhere online ‍♂️

what’s going on!? Do the LHD version fit the RHD car!? This has me stumped, any help sourcing one or just settling my brain with why only LHD versions are available for this fix

even the part numbers match the LHD versions ‍♂️ what’s going on

I had the same issue, eventually I took out my own one, stripped it down and cleaned it up. Working fine now.

I did some pics about it HERE
