    Default Rear Wiper

    Hi

    I have a 2003 1.8 Club hatchback and have the old style wiper blade. I want to put a flat blade on like on the newer models, can I do that or would I need to buy a new wiper arm too?

    If I can put one on, does anyone have a link to one that will fit?

    Thanks

    Carl

    AFAIK, you need the arm and the blade itself. My Mate's 07 SRI has a different rear arm to my 03reg.

    I'd like to know too, i fancy doing the same mod, but not sure if the spindle is the same size

    You need to swap to a newer style arm too.

    Done this to mine as well - you may need a puller to get the old arm off - they are quite tight!
