Well, tried fitting my new aero wipers...
using the old hammer on the spindle to loosen the old arms...
DISASTER:censored:

Bashed the threads so the bolts won't go back on.
So now i need a new linkage, any ideas if the linkage is seperate to the wiper motor...don't wan't any unnesscary expense.

I HATE CARS[:@]

try carefully filing the top of the thread into a taper to remove the mushroomd top and then the nuts may catch on the good thread below

in future just loosen the nuts a few turns and then tap it

or try a brakers yard as I think the polo/fabia linkage should fit

good luck!

woohoo, all sorted. Had to angle the pass wiper arm up so it doesn't catch on the A pillar.

CC as in climate control or cruise control?
hehe, already got both. Custom Code software, my specialist used to deal in Revo, but he's changing software atm.
