How's the wiper contact with the glass? Is it raised on the edges or do you have full contact?

Well I`m not after a single blade wiper...just a more modern motor for my super. So is there any VW part for a straight replacement?

I think I know what you are asking. The stock wipers of a 1303 generally don't maintain contact at the windshield's bend.

The single-wiper conversions I have seen look like they go bend-to-bend. So, yes, they maintain contact with the glass but, no, they don't swipe the area of the bend either. In fact, it looked to me if the wiper was extended to include that area on either side, the wiper blade would extend beyond the top of the glass when the wiper would point at 12 o'clock.

I think they mount up the same, but the plug would be different. I'll try the mk3 motor on my stock 1303 assy later today.

geez bullet bug ur grave digging every thread from the vault LOL

i had a single wiper conversion for a while
i just cut down a flat screen beetle wiper motor so it was only one shaft and mounted it to the LHD mounting hole in the center with a stock 1303 wiper just with the bend straightened out
i also changed the arm arrangement so it parked in the vertical position
it gave great coverage but i had to return it to stock to keep the local authorities happy

Hi

I'm going to stick with dual wipers as the engineer that has to pass my car has said that the duals have to stay.

What I'm thinking of doing is altering the pivot ratio on the passengers side of the car so that it does a longer sweep, this is on a 1303.

Steve
