Super quick to remove the latch itself. I did it multiple times on my mk6 so it was very similar here. I choose to remove the two bolts holding the drain tube and leaving that in the car, 3 bolts hold the latch to the body, remove those and unplug the 3 wires then twist clockwise 1/4" and it pulls out from the inside.

Just did mine today. $23 for the heat gun, $2 for fishing line, $10 for some scratch remover and it came out great after a good wash.

And now I have a heat gun for when I install the All-fit lip and scratch remover for the nicks in the paint i get from all my highway driving

I like having a rear wiper as I look out of it often.(been rear-ended a lot in my life by drunk aholes) I am however debating on removing the fender badging, as my wash mitts keep getting caught on the leading edge, tired of working around it, and I am getting the car covered in PPF and need to decide before than if I want to or not. Hashing it around.

Does anyone know if there are any entry level Golfs offered somewhere in the world that didn't come with a rear wiper? If so, did they come with a plug, or a rear window with no hole in it. I know with the Mk3's, parts of the world had Golfs with no rear wiper and there are a handful of people here in the States that have sourced those windows to do their wiper delete. I like the rear wiper delete, just don't like the plug. To me, it's obvious something is missing.
