Mk1Rear Wiper overtravel

Recommended Posts

Found the rear wiper blade hanging straight down. On operation it still travels the correct distance but it’s starting point can be anywhere. I’ve turned the blade to its correct start point and sometimes it stops ok but other times it stops but drops.

is this the spline that’s worn? Any ideas appreciated

EDIT: Found the end of the whole wiper blade assy that fits on the spline has cracked with age. Where to find the whole assy ?

Its just the wiper arm you need - steel shaft and the plastic arm don't work well together -


there are plenty on eBay, but be aware that the FRP (French) and JPP (Japan) built cars are different, iirc the 1.3 should be Japan built, the first 3 letters of the VIN will tell you

VNK - France

JTD - Japan
