Problematic rear wiper, tried to remove rear wiper arm, seems jammed on do not want to prise to much incase rear window smashes. So keep applying releasing spray. Has any one modified rear washer on mk2 ocatavias. Not keen on drilling metal work and paint. Had thought disconnecting washer pipe but unsure where.Ive seen numerous torq screws on casing but do not have those sizes, can it be modified any way or not.
Need you suggestion as I am not sure about cars/motors.
Seems my SKODA OCTAVIA ELEGANCE TDI 5 DOOR HATCHBACK 1968CC (BEIGE/BUFF) (2005) DIESEL AUTO rear wiper motor not working.
Is it good to buy new OR used?
New one costs £58.20 and used £35.00 (3 months warranty).
Which one is ideal?
Kindly also let me know any good place to buy motor other than Euro car parts.
This is my first post, so apologies if I have missed something essential....
I've had an issue recently with the rear wiper on my Fabia Mk1 hatchback and it's started to play up again.
The rear wiper motor blew it's fuse. I replaced the fuse, but the wiper would not work. after a couple of days, i tried the wiper and it did work, but stayed constantly on. I removed the rear trim and exposed the motor unit and it was absolutely sodden where it was leaking from the plastic connector on the motor. The electrical connection was soaking too. I took the motor unit apart and it was full of washer fluid. I since replaced the motor unit as it clearly needed changing anyway, but 2 weeks later, the rear wiper has started acting stangely again. If I turn the rear wiper on, it seems to only move 1/3 the way through the full motion, then stops and doesn't come on again, even if in automatic. When i cancel the wiper, then put it back on again, it will again shift about a third the way through then stop. sometimes, it does move all the way through, then stops. There isn't a general rule. When I spray the screen wash, it will do about 2-4 full movements and then stop.
I checked the unit and it is not wet and no water has gotten over the wiper motor, so I don't think dampness is the issue.
I am not sure as to where the issue may be coming from.
Any ideas from anyone? Would be really appreciated if anyone has got any ideas.
Thanks in advance,
The rear wiper stopped working yesterday. I thought a good starting point would be to check the fuse. According to the handbook the fuse is 41 in the fuse-box under the cover at the driver's end of the dash. Fuse 41 is the second fuse in the second row up. On my car there is no fuse in this position!
