Wiper arm upgrade.

Hello everyone. My Audi a2 1.4 is very good. However, the pantogram wiper requires changing. I would like a later model with the spoiler wiper.
Any help would be well appreciated.

Thanks.

Hi
I offer a refurb service on the wiper arms
They are better than new when you get it as I use stainless steel pins and fit new bushes plus a complete repaint in satin black 2k

You have a choice of wiper blades some with the wind spoiler

Let me know if you want a wiper arm
The hook style gets a lot of stick but once the slop is removed it’s actually very good and you can get an aero style wiper blade for it

Paul,

Think I asked you some time ago but don’t remember what the answer was. How much would you charge to Refurbish my Original Aero Wiper Arm please ?

Regards,

Steve

Hi. £30 plus £7 postage to return it too you unless you wanted to collect from st Anne’s
That fits new end bushes, stainless steel pins and a complete repaint in satin black 2K paint
If it’s an aero wiper you have the option of the 3D printed cover for £10 extra

Cheers. Paul

Thank you for your prompt response. I will do this. The hook on my wiper barely holds it in, so I will opt for the later aero version if that can work.
What do I do now??

I can only offer a wiper arm on a like for like basis. I.e. if you have an aero style then I will send you an aero style Sam did you have the hook style. This is because I refurbish them and cannot make an hook style into an aero style

Hope clarifies
Let me know if you want one

Hi Anne
That is an aero wiper arm (the latter style)
I can supply a refurbished aero style arm complete with 3D printed cove to hide the rivet heads and prevent water ingress to the pivots for £40 plus £7 postage
There is a £50 refundable deposit on top which is returned in Full once I get the old arm back
Sorry I need to do the deposit thing but some members were not returning the old arm and without it the refurbishment service becomes untenable

I’ll have to look at sending it to you some time. You are only down the road though, so maybe get in touch if we are going your way.

You are always welcome to drop it off and or collect
If you want your own refurbishing and your own back it would be two trips

This is my wiper arm. The hook doesn't seem the grip the wiper & it's prone to loosen. Can you cure this? Or can that part be changed for the aero part??

Many thanks.

This is the earlier hook style wiper arm
I can cure the slop in the pivot pins which generally wear and allows the metal part which the wiper blade clips into to slop around as a result the blade can not be he’s at 90 deg to the glass and it results in the blade juddering when moving on the screen

K have never seen an arm that does not securely hold the blade in place. The metal is around 3mm thick and very strong for what it is doing so I think it unlikely that the blade is not being held securely unless the wiper blade mounting point is broken or worn. This would be fixed by replacing the blade itself which is around £12

Please have a look and see where the slop is and let me know

Yes they are offered on an exchange basis. You get a refurbished wiper arm with new bushes and stainless steel pins and a full repaint. But I need your old arm back to refurbish for the next customer

The hook style is £30 plus £7 delivery and a £50 deposit on your old arm. Returned in full when I get your old arm back

Certainly. Pm incoming
Do you want me to send you a refurbished arm before I receive yours ? If so the deposit is needed. If not then no deposit as I will have your arm back before I send out the refurbished one

Yes it will fix the sagging that allows the wiper arm to touch the screen
The damaged done to the screen is near impossible to repair so a new screen is in order
I need a picture of your wiper arm to determine if it’s a hook style or the later aero style arm
