    Wipers

    Good afternoon all,
    Just one question regarding the wipers on the Zafira...

    Can the wipers be changed over so the drivers one raises first before the passenger one?

    Reason I ask is because I'm sick and tired of the drivers one stopping 3 inches short of the edge of the screen. The passenger one meets up quite nicely - if you were driving a LHD model.

    Obviously I know the angle of the arms are different so just merely swapping them is not an option, but would the new Zafira wipers (that actually do cater for our sceptic isle - drivers one raises first) fit onto my 53 plate Zafira GSi or will the splines be different?

    Anyone with any ideas?

    It's the linkage that needs changing. Most zafs were made with a LHD linkage fitted as standard and IIRC owners used to be able to go to vauxhall to have it changed for a RHD version under warranty so that it rectified this problem. Obviously on a 53 plate you have no vauxhall warranty anymore so you could try the scrappies in the hope you find a zaf with the modified linkage. I know Jalfrezigazee got his changed by vaux.

    Hi MM,

    Glad that it can be done...
    Must ask Vauxhall if they could get me the parts to do it...
