But humor me anyway, seriously.

So the passenger side windshield wiper blade has a little bit of a curve to it. Which way does the concave side of it point, down or up?

My MY'99 blade is curved tips upward (concave side is upward). The curve lets it nest along the bottom of the windshield when in the parked position. If it were reversed it would overlap the lower windshield frame.

EDIT: oh wait! I am right. jaero, you mean the cave is downwards...
The wiper blades aren't the same through all model years. NYC4ever, what MY Passat do you have?

My wipers don't look like those in the picture above for the B5.5. The original wipers on a B5 had a curved blade on the passenger side, but it doesn't have the aero wing, and the curve is apparantly reversed. I meant what I said before, on my car the concave side faces upward.
