    Fitting Wiper Arms

    Hi folks, just about to fit the wiper arms and wanted to confirm the approach...here's what I suspect I do (S&J wipers onto AK):

    1. Fit arm to spindle in park position.?
    2. Secure by tightening the screw?
    3. Fit blades to end of arm somehow (need to look in more detail at this)?
    4. Extend arm to cover required height of screen?
    5. Secure arm position by using the locking tag on the arm - if this is what it is for?

    Appreciate additions, corrections, deletions!

    Cheers Mike

    Don’t forget to power the harness to park the motor before you fit the wipers

    And you should be parking on the drivers side, unlike your daily driver, so you need to make sure the spindles spin to the near side first.

    I had to do quite a lot of bending and shaping of the arms to get the right angles for the blades.
    The blades would not sit parallel to the screen frame or contact the screen along their length without the tweaking. Remember to wet the screen when testing or you could scratch the glass.

    Agree here, i had to twist the end of each and bend in the middle of the arm to get the correct pressure to wipe the screen, still not great but hopefully good enough to pass IVA.

    Who will drive it in the rain anyway, only required if caught in a passing summer shower right?
