I finally installed the Single Wiper Conversion kit!


The install was quite easy; it took me about 2 hours from start to finish. Not sure I will leave the wiper on the driver’s side as I may switch it on the passenger’s. That’s one good thing about this kit: you can choose where the wiper sits. I can be at many places, the most common being on the driver’s or passenger’s side and the TT DTM race car look: right in the middle! Here’s the video I shot last night. I’ll add another one soon, with the wipers in action under snow. (It requires I take the car out of the garage, where it sleeps all winter long:) )

First, I took the wipers arms out and the shroud under them

Second, I took the linkage and motor out, following the instructions

Third, I replaced the OEM linkage with Storm's. (linkage being the upper part)

Finally, I re-inserted the linkage (with only one wiper stud) and shroud. The only thing left is to install the wiper arm!

Here’s a video of the single wiper in action. (sorry for the quality, it was shot from my iPhone!)

I started this blog just recently because I have so much fun modifying my MK1 TT... that I need to let the world know! And it's also a good reference when looking back at my mods. Ciao for now! Andre
