Hello all,

The rear wiper on my 2004.5 variant points to the right when turned off. The rear wiper on my 2001 variant pointed to the left when turned off. The wagons on the VW site show the wiper pointing to the left.

So my question is:

Did A) someone put my wiper on backwards, or B) this is an odd 1/2 year modification by the factory?


Thanks for your help!

if your wiper points to the left and you want to point it to the right you take a Golf 4 wiper motor, it fit 100%

Are these "only in Europe" parts?

The wiper in the pics is also on the Touareg. I saw one today.

Is this an easy job ? Are there any instructions or guides to follow ?

My wiper points to the left, and i'd ideally like to change it for a smoother looking one, is my only option to change the motor so it sits on the right, then change the arm & blade ?

Thanks in advance.

Marc,
It is fairly easy job, I bought parts based on Marc's site ( http://www.passatplus.de/umbauten/heckwischer/heckwischer.htm ) and just swapped OE motor for Golf one. It sits with no problems whatsoever. It is real bolt on DIY mod, same goes for front wipers.
You will have no problem to do it.

Thanks for the info.

I will look into the motor swap, but there must be other VAG cars with wipers that sweep from the left, to make it an easy swap.
