I'm looking for a replacement multi function, wiper control arm part No. 7D0953503B for my T4. Any suggestions where I might find one most welcome. Thanks

Just out of interest... Does anyone know if you can retro-fit a multi-function wiper arm with a 'regular' version...

I'd think it a bit more involving than just swapping out the stalk and plugging it in. Chances are the whole instrument unit would need upgrading too.

I did the cruise control arm upgrade, that was a swap out and switch on in the ECU via the software... Was just wondering if it would be the same...

Would be nice if it was that simple but…

Thank you. The reference is for suffix D rather than B; do you think/know whether "D" would work on my T4 Cali Westi 1992
Hmm. Yeah I noticed that once I'd posted. Couldn't say for sure. On reading the listing further I'm not sure they'd ship to the UK anyway. Might not be a problem for you though as I see you're London and France based. The pictures on the listing are pretty detailed. You may be able to make a comparison.

Thanks I spoke to someone at a spares supplier and they said the parts are not interchangeable. I've scoured German Ebay found two items but one had been sold the other the seller couldn't find!! So I need to widen the search.

Has it just given up working or is there another reason for the need to replace?

How odd. All I do with mine is switch the wipers on and off. I don’t bother with the display.

Are you sure you've got a 1992? That dash and stalks look like they're from a much newer model.

Sorry 2002, which I bought in 2016 so not sure of detailed history. The problem is that the front and back windscreen wipers run continuously and will not turn off whilst the engine is running! I'll go back to garage on Monday to double check part number. They have contacted their German VW suppliers who have searched high and low but could only find the left hand arm. Proving very difficult to locate the Multi function lever arm.
