A quick favour.... wiper length.

Could someone do me a quick favour and measure the wipers arms on a Grande Punto please?

The distance from the bolt securing them to the wiper motor and the point at which the wiper blade attaches.

Thanks.

direct measurments end to end
60cm for drivers side -
78 for passengers side
both are is dog leg shape so measurements are not very accurate to take - you really need to have the car with you if you are putting on accessories

Thanks.

How can they not be accurate? just need the straight line length from the pivot point to the wiper clip.

Cheers.

you can use the dimmensions i gave you but if you are thinking of putting something on them or changing them they are a very unusual shape - again you need to have the car with you as they are recessed under the bonnet with very little clearance - can i ask what you have in mind.

Re: A quick favour.... wiper length.

I want to fit them to my Mk1.

I had a good look at 2 GP Sportings at Gaydon on Sunday and the wiper arms looked very very similar to mine. Same design with the approx. 6" gap between the pivot point and the hinge.

But I think you are right, I'm going to call around the local scrap yards and see if they have an GP's in.

Thanks.

Bugger.

Mk1 wipers are 50cm and 60cm. Back to the drawing board
