    Apologies bez,
    thats actually a very detailed description you gave there, I suppose I didn't 'take in right' when you said the B7 model and my fog lights and number plate lights were still working.

    so what is the brown wire for? As you mentioned you still had power at the boot release?
    I ask this as i have a faulty rear wiper and im wondering if it could be the same scenario.

    I'd imagine it's a ground/earth wire,

    So is there a way to test that wire is doing its job. Other than a continuity test?

    my boot release has now given up too. seemed to be water in the connection though. Where would be best to look for breaks on a avant?
