    Just the motor I would of thought. And remove your HID's as you will buying a 130 motor quite often!

    Buy OEM HIDS, only way around it. The noise generated by non OEM ones burns the motors out as you have already found

    Without being funny, but surely the current state of the wiper motor would answer your question even before posting it on here.

    Fit oem's & your problems will disappear & if you need an installer look me up.

    Is this on the facelift or the prefacelifted models? I know I heard lots of stories with the prefacelifted ones with burning out the wiper motor.

    Marnie the people on this thread have already explained that the HIDs are your problem and your motor has been blown. Your only option now is to replace the motor. They have recommended that you remove the HIDs or else you should expect to be replacing motors regularly.

    I am not sure what the icon means but I assume it related to the motor. It might be in the manual though so take a look to see if it explains what it is.

    RTFM = Read The Fecking Manual

    Unfortunately alot of people dont do this, its not we're being unhelpful & rude, but these simple things are in the book, we try to get people to read before asking as the site has a wealth of info & I personally advise this route 1st then ask what you dont get, I am always happy to help people that many know, that are willing to read, learn & listen, please note this for future reference fella.

    Anyway, that icon just this time is Rain/Light Sensor faulty.
