    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!

    What aero wipers go on the front? and the back?

    Is it just the face lift arms etc?
