    I got a rhd linkage fitted under warranty as all the A Zafiras came with lhd setup on. It was to reduce production costs but the problem is you get a bit piece not being wiped at the A pillar when it rains. Instant warranty claim, wonder if the B model is the same

    My 07 B definitely has the correct linkage, as I get a 2" unswept bit on the Left side, but only 0.5" on the right.

    Using LHD linkage isn't anything like as bad as what Citroen did with the old ZX - the single wiper used to park on the LHS of the screen, so when driving on intermittant all the water you had just swept off used to just blow back up the screen on the driver's side!

    If you notice Zafira A has the drivers wiper underneath the pasengers one in rhd form so the sweep is never going to be as good on the drivers side. On the Zafira B thay have made the drivers one above the passengers one so the sweep will be further up the screeen. Had a look at a B system and looks as though the blades are actually lower down the screen than on the A as there is a dip in the lower end of the glass to accomodate them, this is not on the A ,so difficult to fit. Really need to try some to confirm though.
