Hi, the R52 is the convertible mini which (as far as I’m aware) doesn’t have a rear wiper, my r52 mini one doesn’t anyway!

i take it yours is a hardtop r50 mini one or r53 Mini Cooper s

a quick google and ebay search seems to suggest they are the same on those cars

Yes there is a difference. The mountings points are slightly different and so is the plug from what i remember. They changed from 04 onwards.
