    Hi mate, you have a PM. As for the rear wiper and LCD screen, these are very common problems. The LCD's can be repaired/replaced using services off eBay and will cost around 90 quid all in and will involve posting your instrument cluster off and takes around 3-5 days. My rear wiper was the same so I just took the motor out and got a rubber grommet for the hole!

    Cheers for the PM, have got back to you.

    That rear end looks smooth with no wiper, may go down that route if I can't fix it. No point having a broken motor just sitting there.
