i`ve seen some clips at youtube og single wiper conversions..

on alot of the clips i see that the wiper is either parked too high,, or it wipes outside the windscreen..

 

does these wiper kits go all the way to the bottom on both sides? and park at the bottom?

 

anybody? :unsure:

They wipe in an arc which can take a few days to get used too as its not the wipe your used too. Mine was parked normal at the scuttle, not in the centre like some.

They do wipe to both sides bottom. Faster as well.

anyone know if the single wiper convertion fits mk6 when its "made" for a mk5b??

 

Mine was off a mk6 on here then fitted to my mk5b so yes its fine.

Mine was fine in heavy rain, different arm beneath makes it wipe faster & mine parked low on the passenger side down close to the scuttle.

Get a good one & fit it correct & it will be fine.

It will never be as low as the standard wipers but can still be pretty low and out of sight from the pictures i've seen.

 

Mine was!

what make is yours ? ^^

 

could be beause the actual motor arm is too short so it hasnt got much of a throw on it, i used to have a storm one, it wiped within an inch on the bottom of the drivers side, and sometimes hit the scuttle on the passengers........

 

brilliant in heavy rain too, as pete said buy a good one and it'll be fine, personally i think theyre better than the 2 wiper set-up, after all quite a few high spec merc's come with them :)

i got a storm kit!! and it dosent wipe all the way too the bottom on either of teh sides :(

i know it not posible to make it wipe like ALL the way dorw.. but there is alot more that could be wipped..

but if i exstend the arm on the motor then the arm on the wiper will hit the firewall -.-
