6N - Rear wiper removal

[Polo 6N] Removing the rear wiper

Download the PDF file for offline reference and printing.

Also, get the reader if you don't have it already:

When you remove the rear wiper on the 1994-1999 Polo, you’ll notice a big cutout in the glass. On later models, this cutout was replaced with a single hole, allowing for the easy fitting of a plug. No such luck for us, though.

We need a bigger piece of plastic to cover the hole up. I ordered a cover from Cult Society, based in Austria. They’re quite well known in the scene as a bunch of dub heads leading the way with an original and very cool style of modifying. As a result of the efforts of the brothers Altendorfer, a whole range of styling products was produced. Visit www.cult-society.com to learn more.

Total time:
Approximately 30 – 45 minutes.

Low.

Thanks fellas. I am amazed at how much better it looks! Especially viewed from the side - it just accentuates the 'roundness' of the rear. I mean, it looks as if the back is more or less straight from top to bottom, but I just noticed it's really curved, with the roof stopping earlier than I'd imagined.

Hope that makes sense!

:lol:

Oh, and ignore the filth. It'll be clean tomorrow...

Hey Ice, welcome! From Estonia? I'm impressed, there's members from all over the world here!

Right, ontopic:

The wiper is from the VW Polo Variant, part number: 6K0 955 707 and you'll need the cap that covers the nut: 6N0 955 435 A 01C. There's a chance that the cap is the same as your current one, but it's a cheap part - so you might as well get it.

It's a simple mod on the Mk4 - unbolt your current arm, take the wiper blade out and clip it into the new arm. Refit the arm + blade and you're done. Use some WD40 or similar to make it easier to take off the old arm, mine was rusted in place a bit.

Good luck!
