IIRC, You remove the hinge bracket from the right side wiper, attach a 24" wiper to the middle bracket, adjusting it somehow... don't remember the details, just thought I'd throw a little bit into the mix

From what I've read in the past about this conversion, the wiper is pretty much useless for clearing the window of any water, unless you do the true uni-wiper conversion like the Mercedes have. In my opinion I think it looks kind of bad, unless the wiper was the true conversion where it could go down all the way so it wouldn't be hanging on the window all the time. But to each is his own, so if ya like it, go for it!

I have this and it works just fine!! You just remove the wiper on the passenger side and then like previously stated you put a 24 in blade on the remaining one. You adjust it by lifting the blade off the window (like when you are drying it) and pull it partially off the post, you then get it to the desired spot push it back on fully and place blade on window takes about 10 min to do everything!!

you won't get pulled over for having that wiper hanging in the middle of the window like that will you? Does that obstruct your view at all?

I have this mod and it cleans fine!! No probs at all. And I have had it this way for over a year and havent been pulled over. There is some obstruction to the passengers view but its not bad. As far as how it goes I already told you and posted pics.
