    Rear Wiper issue - 2005 sportback

    Hi guys,

    The rear wiper has packed in and i cannot even get the wiper arm off... I have taken off the bolt holding it down but i still can't get it to budge. Can anyone give me any advise on how to get it off and roughly what would be a good price to get a new wiper motor and arm?
    Have seen a couple on ebay for 70 but thats just for the motor.

    Thanks
    Ash

    Alright lads iv had the same problem with mine and had to physicaly pull it to bits it was that seized.the washer pipe goes through the wiper body an corrodes the innerds poor design realy,
    you might as well dismantle it because it will be well fooked. the new wiper motors have been revised to prevent the corrosion issues.honnestly if its as bad as mine was no end of wd40 will work.depending on your style the look quite cool left out and a gromit in the whole i tried it b4 i put the new motor in

    I'm in the same boat too. My wiper has packed in!

    I'm just going to remove it tomorrow and not bother replacing it. Do the Halfords grommets fit the hole? if so, what size? Thanks.

    rite m8 it was ither 20mm or 25mm in not 100% sure since it wasnt a perminant fixture i removed it ond put it back in the box i can remember the one i put in wasnt deep enough for the for the depth of the glass but it did fit spot on i suppose a little lip of clear silicone wont go a miss to mak it water tight
