    Question Mk5 wiper arms on mk4s

    Evening all

    Scrapyard run today, got some mk5 wiper blades and arms on my mk4, hellish better looking, but no matter how much me and a pair of mates, couldn't get the ****ers lined up! and they kept on clipping.

    We banged some thin lead strips to pack out the splines and arms, worked pretty well too.

    Also, what size blades does every one use on their conversions?

    Passenger side blade. Can't remember how much exactly but it's only something like 2cm (or thereabouts) from the outside end.

    carefully remove the end cap, and then chop the same distance off the rubber, metal strip and plastic trim.. once done put it all back together again

    Just the man who I was hoping to respond

    The bit I'm trimming, is it towards the drivers side or the passenger side?

    Edit:- just re read and seen

    The whole lot. Saying that, I think the blades would be a fortune from the dealers anyway!
