    Hi,
    Ive fitted a new front wiper motor to a 2004 8p. No hids or automatic wipers. But it wont work. Ive tried to figure out how to code the motor, but cant find it on the long coding helper. Any ideas? cheers

    I didn't think it needed coding.

    You did make sure the bonnet was closed properly before you tried it didn't you because it won't work otherwise.

    the wipers can be coded under the central electrics module (09) and then click on to coding. before clicking on long coding helper select the front wiper from the drop down at the top and then click onto the coding helper. though i cannot see that being the problem in this case
