Mine had a broken/repaired arm when I bought the car - so I replaced with a new one. However, I just couldn't get it adjusted just right so it always left a smear.
So - when I had the paint job I opted for a new screen and deleted the wiper gubbins.
I think the back end does look so much neater without, and it's never caused me a problem in the rain (though that could be because I would usually be in the Merc if its raining Embarassed )

Seriously though, with a good coat of RainX the rain falls off as soon as you start moving.

I fitted the RS rear window, no heater no wiper much lighter and causes a strange squashing lens effect. Treat with rain repellent, love it.

Where did you get the RS Rear Window from..? Cool

I love the rear wiper and the way it always takes you two goes to remember how to put it back down after washing Grin

Plus if you drive really really fast backwards in the rain it's useful to have Thumb

Not forgetting, if you drive really really slow forwards its very usefull to have Laughing

I got rid of mine, firstly with a bung and then with a new screen. Occasionally would have been useful but the aesthetics of the car are a big part of ownership for me (practicality can't honestly be anyone's main driver) and the cleaner look works for me.

Doesn't it leave a mark on the rear shelf?

Mine has an insert covering the wiper motor hole in the shelf. Looks neat and you'd have to be looking closely to notice it.

Gunner, are those original tips? Are they meant to sit that far out from the bumper? Car looks mint btw.

No, cargraphic from memory. I thought the originals looked a bit meh and the OEM big ovals were too expensive.

...it's a wiper, it's useful for wiping...I doubt anyone really cares if one is fitted or not...if you have one you can choose to use it or not...for wiping purposes...if you don't have one ...you don't have a choice...

It's just a wiper ffs....

Gotcha.

Did yours sit differently? I don't think I've fitted them wrongly (they've stayed put for the last couple of years anyway) but I wouldn't rule it out! Laughing
