How do i remove and replace the rear window wiper blade? I know noobie question but I'm scared of breaking something. Do i have to remove the whole arm or something?

Pivot the arm where it's bolted to the car so it's 90 degrees from the tailgate then just pull the blade away from the arm - you will see on the new blade the pivot at the centre this will just clip into moulded features in the arm. No tools needed.

Thanks rob for the quick reply lol

New wiper is now on, just a little bit fidgety but it came off after a few wiggles. Thanks!

Hi - not trying to hijack this older post but can anyone recommend a rear wiper for a '15 plate A3 Sportback? Audi have fitted two already and after a time they just shudder over the window, missing the water and making a horrendous noise.

Mines a 15 plate Sportback have had a Bosch A332H blade on for over a year now no issues. Purchased from wiper blades.co.uk

Bosch from Eurocarparts - they usually have some sort of discount running over Bank Holidays.

Just checked. Enter code "CRAZY99" for up to 60% off.

I have a 2017 audi A3 sportsback black edition and have been sent a Bosch A331h rear wiper blade. Should this be a Bosch A332h?

I don't know the difference but I've bought A332h before for my Sportbacks
