The original rear wiper can be improved, in looks and sweep, by using the arm and wiper from Citroen C2 rear. It's a straight swap.
The Citroen part numbers are:

C6429W3 Blade Holder £14.19
C6429T3 Blade £8.33

After

hi guys just replaced my wiper arm with a c2 one. whilst fitting noticed that the rubber gromet which sits between the wiper motor and screen seems to have a split in it, has anyone replaced this before, is it just a pop in job or a strip down

Does anyone know of a similar mod to replace the front right wiper? The front right wiper is, to my mind at least, about 5cms too short, and does not cover/wipe the screen as well as a longer wiper obviously would. Does anyone know if an SMax wiper is longer and would it fit?

Have just carried out the Citroen rear wiper mod and find the wiper blade body fouls under the rear spoiler which causes it to stop in the vertical position !, anybody else had this problem & if so what did you do to fix it (other than cut off the end off the blade housing ?).

Did you use the arm off a C" or a C3?
The C3 arm is a straight swap and does not foul the spoiler.

Hi MM, thanks for your response, I followed the post & bought the C2 arm & wiper !!!!
obviously wrong, although the pictures do show the C2 items, presume those who have also bought C2 parts won't reply asit doesn't work (assembly just too long) & they have got it wrong, I will go & have a look & measurethe C3 items & compare. thanks again for your reply, B Rgds, Paul H.

Apologies for being abit late to this but I've gone "the other way" and taken it off completely.

Take off the bolt for the wiper. Take out the two screws in the handles for the boot lid. The boot trim just pulls down. Three bolts and unclip an electrical connector and the motors out. Stick a21mmgrommet from Maplins in it and spray it with a water dispersal spray. The whole window then stays see through and it's one less wiper to replace as well.

It also looks alot better in my opinion.
