wondered what sizes were best for the golf...went to go buy one today and the guy started going on if i had the correct size?? 'i dont know' was all i could say for about 5mins!:wtf:
if anyone has one, if it needs slight alteration and what size works best...any advice would be great

for a mkIv golf my understanding is that the polo rear aero wiper is a straight swap, however the mkV golf rear aero wiper needs the black plastic cap filing/sanding down a couple of mill at the base to sit flat just clear of the rear glass :hmmmm2::)

what car is it for?

I have the polo aero wiper although it must be the older polo because the cap needs filing down on mine at the bottom. It sits fine when still but will pop up as soon as I turn the wiper on.

Thats just a FYI, so if the newer Polo wiper fits perfectly even when working thats great.

thanks for that guys, im still confused tho!
the guy kept going on about wiper arm sizes...like 280mm or 325mm? when you bought yours did it have a specific size and what year golf/polo was it off.
cheers

A 2004 model Polo wiper should be fine, I think theyve brought out a newer model since then.

All I know is, when I had my R32 in 2004 I bought the latest model polo wiper and it fits perfectly.
