Default Main front screen wiper is on the left

My early 2011 308SW has a long and a short front wiper blade the longer one giving a larger area is in front of my passenger can I change them over?
I assume this part of the car as been built as for use in Europe.
Thanks
David

I very much doubt if you could, as if you look closely they don't both wipe the same distance, and need to keep in sync so they don't clash.

This is one reason I wouldn't buy a car with the wipers that way around - luckily the 407 has them the right way around.

1) Nope

2) Yes, and for some reason on the 308 Pug were tight and didn't design a RHD specific set up. It does slightly mar the enjoyment of an otherwise excellent car.

I'm on my second 307 (same system as 308) and it is something you quickly get used to. Whilst, ultimately, having them the other way around is optimum for rhd, I don't ever feel as though my view is compromised by the wiper being smaller by an inch either end on my side.
Our 207 has conventional wipers, and I prefer the 307 system, as I don't think the 207 driver's wiper gets close enough to the a pillar.
