Has anyone done this on a E36? One of my wipers motors broke and the space for it in the bottom of windshield is rusted out. Wondering if it's cheaper just to convert to a single wiper?

I have a single wiper on the MB. It came stock like that though. Works great, wipes a much bigger area than 2 of them together. It sorta goes up and down while moving left to right. If you really want a video, let me know and I can make one tomorrow.

I don't know about the price of a conversion though, especially if you get an actual system instead of just putting one on crooked.

The thing I really hate though, is when people leave them in the middle of the windshield while they're driving to show off. Some guy in an 80s Civic does this around here. Pretty pathetic, especially if it's painted yellow.

It isn't that hard to do a single wiper conversion, but the sweeping area isn't as good, and it looks a bit ricey in my opinion. The single wipers should be left for the Mercedes only!
