I've had 3 Mk2's and cant say I've ever noticed it being an issue.  Just a thought, what brand of blades are you using?

Not easily, it would be possible to modify the clock on the motor but a LOT of work.

The better solution would be to "upgrade" the scuttle to the later Mk2 / Sharan/Alhambra ones as they create an aero barrier off the back of the bonnet. Have a look at the latter sections of this:

You need to replace the scuttle top as well, cost about 45 iirc for the parts from SEAT. Basically two long bits of plastic, the aerofoil bit and the one under the wipers. The wipers and mech are the same,

I just wanted to put the wipers instead of having them resting "down", have them resting "up" if you get me.
There's a lot of people that do that in the Smart For Two
