Ahh i see, single wiper arm conversions are popular on a number of cars but these cars are made with a universal scuttle.

By this i mean that the metal below the windcreen is constructed in such a manner that one wiper pivot is in the center and the other wiper pivot hole is opened up during manufacture on either the left of right of the scuttle depending wether the car is to be right or left hand drive.

A Manta scuttle has both wiper pivot points offset from center so to make a single wiper conversion a new pivot point would have to be created in the center of the scuttle.

There is talk that cars modified to use a single wiper will be checked at MOT time to make sure that they park in the correct place and the swept area is the same as the orginal.

Might be worth checking is VOSA etc before you spend time and money
