How many people have encounted the problem where the paint on the windscreen wiper arms peels off to reveal white/grey metal??

I know this is a common issue with the Audi's here in the UK, however... do "the rest of the world" have this problem also??

Please advise from where ever you are!!

Cheers

I had this issue (corrosion) on the wiper arms and had them replaced by Audi under warranty. Our winters are pretty harsh here so it's a common problem.

I had the same problem.But as the car is out of warranty Audi would not change them.So i upgraded my pair of arms and blades for the new B7 A4 aero type.They are a direct replacement for the B6 A4.And not only do they look better they clear the screen better and are silent.But they did cost me £67 but well worth it.
Part numbers for anyone interested are:-

A4B2 955 425 B x2 For the blades

A8E2 955 407 C x1 arm
A8E2 955 408 C x1 arm

Where did you buy the replacements?? As there are no specific audi dealers where I am and so i may need to buy off the internet.

Thanks

Adam.

My 2002 A4 has the same problem. Anyone know of any USA retailers (other than Audi) of the B7 type - sounds like a very good idea.

I installed the B7 wipers on my B6 today. It was a 15min job. The hard part was getting the old ones off.

The old wiper arms had grooves corresponding with grooves on the driveshafts. The new ones didn't, but the conical shape was the same, so they fitted.
