      Working Bonrath Mono wiper kit, pulled from a GTI I'm parting out. $275 shipped from Lufkin, TX. Might trade for some other rare parts.

      It appears the linkage has broken and been repaired. Do you have the cap/plug and pad for the unused hole?

      Also, is that the correct Bonrath wiper arm? Judging from the pic, I'm not so sure.

      I'll inspect it today, if it's been repaired I would be off on the pricing. In that case I would probably just hold onto it and use it on the Jetta. Wiper is a bosch.

      That square steel piece with the 4 bolts through it is a repair. That arm was a known weakness on the Bonrath units... cheap metal.

      The big thing I'm getting at however, is that the wiper arm itself appears to be incorrect. If it doesn't have BONRATH stamped on the front face, it isn't original. It appears to be a standard VW wiper arm.

      Just the same, I'm sure people will still be interested in buying this with an adjusted price, I just don't want to see somebody get an unpleasant surprise.

      That's what stopped me from buying the last two kits that popped up on here...

      Nope. Confirmed that it does have a Bosch arm. I guess a 25 year old part has been through hell! Lol.

      Motor is stamped with Bonrath on the label along with a ton of specs in German.

      Feel free to make an offer but I'm probably going to just install it on the car now.
