    It will not fail the MOT. You don't require a rear wiper for it to pass. It has probably seized due to a leaky washer pipe (very common). You might also find your boot lock will seize shortly too (if indeed it is a leaky pipe). I just removed mine. Couldn't be arsed with it. Removed the lock too!

    Thats the funny part. I used one of those pikey wheel centre stick-on things that you buy from Halfrauds. I then sprayed it black (they only come in CF effect). Ideally a rubber grommet/bung would be better, but I couldn't find one!

    Yeah piece of wee!! The only bother you might have is removing the main nut that secures it on. Mine was seized so I gave it some with the WD and came back the next day to try again. SORTED! At the same time you might as well remove your boot lock and fill in the gap with Aluminum filler. Looks much nicer with no lock! Mine was buggered anyway (from the suspect leak thats all too common!).....All I did to the redundant washer pipe was tie a good knot in it, whack a few plasti-cuffs (sorry zip ties) round it for good measure and wrap it up with balck and nasty!
