Rear wiper Fault

3 posts in this topic

My wife has a MKIII P reg fiesta and I am having problems with the rear wiper.

I have swaped the motor, the controls on the colum and checked all fuses!

I checked the earth connection through the tailgate and that is good.

The motor will run if you connect 12v directly to it.

Could this be a relay? I thought the relay was just for the front wipers?

Any ideas anybody? I have been trying to fix the car up for months and I am really stuck on this one!

sounds like a relay, the relay also does the intermittent wipe too.

Thank you for the reply.

That was my best bet but the only thing is that the rear wiper does not have intermittent wipe, its just on or off.

I feel a bit out of my depth here. The local auto shop does not stock these, they suggested Ford dealers. Do you think their price will be reasonable or should I just phone the scap yards?
