Wiper position

PostPost by: Dieschelan » Sun Jun 21, 2020 8:31 pm

Hi

What is the correct wiper position in a lhd s3 car? Is possible to change the position?
My S3 start position is from right to left (view from inside).

Not sure of correct position but it can changed. You have to take the motor out and open up. There is a nylon cog that has to be pulled back and turned through 180 degrees and then pushed back, as i recall. Not got a motor to show you. But remember the arms are cranked to the park side, so if changed you will need different arms
If you google you will find some instruction somewhere. I found info a few years ago when i changed mine.
