Ok,my rear wiper like many other 8p motors has never worked since i bought the car (didnt think to check when i bought the car)
The water jet worked but the actual arm wouldnt sweep. I checked the fuse and that was fine.I could hear the relay when moving the wiper stalk forward.Anyway after reading many threads on here i thought,looks like its a new wiper motor
Called Audi and the price is £104.78 including vat for the new revised part (ending in E).Anyway ordered the part which should be in tomorrow and was told i can pay cash on collection although i was going to pay by card on the phone
Anyway as i heard the boot panel is a pain to get off and the arm seems to weld itself on,i thought id start stripping the old motor out ready for the new one tomorrow.Couldnt get the arm off so i have left that to soak in wd40 (hoping it will come off easily tomorrow) Spent a while getting the boot panel off to find " The plug from the motor had been disconnected!!!)
Plugged it into the motor and hey presto,the wiper works fine!!
The only problem i have is when i spray the water it seaps out of the motor so i take it the seal/pipe has broken inside
My question is,do i pay £104.78 to spray some water on the rear window or disconnect and block off the water pipe and use the wiper without water and have a night out with the money saved???
