DIY: Installed a Volkswagen Polo rear wiper on my Skoda Kushaq
I also had the option of using a Vitara Brezza’s rear wiper, but opted for the Polo’s unit instead.

DIY: Replacing my Kushaq’s rear wiper
The Kushaq’s rear wiper has always annoyed me. It’s an eyesore and just looks ugly. I’ve seen cars much cheaper than Kushaq with proper frameless wipers.
Ever since I read BHPian @Atharva14’s thread about how he replaced his Taigun’s rear wiper with that of a Polo, I’ve wanted to do the same.
The only thing I was concerned about was that it wasn’t an exact replacement, you would have to make some adjustments to make it work.
I continued my search and found the following video where Brezza’s wiper is used to replace another Taigun’s wiper and is a direct replacement. In this video you will also learn how to change the wiper arm.
I know it’s just aesthetics but I liked the Polo rear wiper design more than Brezza, it just looks more premium. So I went ahead and ordered the arm and blade for Polo from Amazon.
I had to go to my local mechanic to get the cable carrier mentioned in the video.
The tricky part that @Atharva14 mentioned was the size of the blade, it’s an inch larger and gets stuck under the spoiler.
I just slid the blade lock a few inches to the right and voila!, the wiper works with no issues. I didn’t have to use glue, you just press the two ridges onto the blade’s latch, move to the right and release, and it locks itself.
My apologies as I don’t have photos of the whole process but I will attach the before and after photo.
