    Dont know if this has happened to anyone but my rear wiper has today started playing up.

    Sometimes it wont work. Then it will go half way + then stop & then just stay there. And then go back really slow& juddery!

    The washer still works fine.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    It's most probably seized up. You need to take it apart and lubricate it, or at least try and squirt some WD40 into the rotating part.
    Happens a lot to the front ones, but as they're sealed it's really difficult to get any penetrating fluid to the seized part without dismantling it completely. Need to use a blow torch on my front one in order to seperate it.

    i've got a similar problem ,
    my rear wash was blocked so i blew it out with a air line
    now it will not stop working .
    i ended up disconnected the motor due to lack of time to sort it out .
    it's all good fun though
