MK 1,2,2.5 Single central windscreen wiper...

Postby Mazda Mender » Wed Jan 28, 2015 8:14 am

This is a how to for those that want something different. A single central windscreen wiper that echo's of the 70's, there are a few bits you will need but nothing that will kill your pocket for this look and use like other kits that were out there that are no longer available .

**** please note that the how to below is for the MK 1 only as the MK 2/2.5 kits need a little more parts and more time to fit, how to for the 2's will follow very soon******
The kit will contain...
1 x 22" wiper blade,
1 x rubber grommet,
1 x rotation arm for the wiper motor.

Remove the drivers side wiper arm by removing the rubber grommet that cover the 12mm nut with the ratchet...

Pop the knuckles with the screw driver or trim tool.....

At the motor arm...

Unbolt the the wiper motor arm with the 12mm ring spanner and keep safe, we will need to reuse the lock washer and nut, and the old arm needs to be put away safe as that will be needed to be sent back for your return deposit....

Now it can be a bit tight as different makes we have tested will either miss or hit the windscreen trim...

So we recommend just nipping a little bit off with some sharp scissors...

Now you need to finish removing the Drivers side arm and mechanism, ( put this away safe in case you ever want to return her back to standard) this can be done without removing the windscreen scuttle trim with the 10mm ring spanner, please take care as the scuttle trim can be fragile, once removed just fit the rubber blanking grommet supplied...

Now it is just a case of adjusting the wiper motor arm and the wiper blade arm for where you personally want it to park.

Review..... very easy and simple kit to install in no time ,plus the fact that it is very easy to return to OE twin with using OE parts, bit of fiddling to sort out parking but no big hassle, would of liked a bigger sweep if poss, but looks the part, the old motor arm will need to be returned for a deposit taken so for cost and sweep.... 7 out of 10

Not bad. Agreed the sweep could be better and the faff of getting the position right broke the supplied wiper blade but eventually got it right. Image

I don't think it is that easy with the Mk2 as the pass wiper spindle is not centralised? If it was the quite easy to do just extending the sweep.
