yep, you can sit it where ever you want, the original linkage did snap after two months but i think that happend because the original corsa bit that i used was so old,

Nope, i've snapped two of them now with my single wiper conversion, alltho they have both lasted 6 months, i think that there must be too much extra strain with the new linkage, allthough ive mounted the wiper motor with rubber washers so hopefully it will take longer to break this time.

oh and btw, my wiper linkage is a storm one, and the wiper arm (with washers built in) is Wipex, but havent been impressed with Storm, took forever to get the linkage,
