    My rear wiper won't switch off. I pressed it by accident and then tride to turn it off but it won't!!!!!!!!!!!!. tride all the options on the stalk (for the rear wiper) but no luck.Was thinking about pulling the fuse for the moment but read somewhere that this disables the front wipers as well. Is there not a seperate fuse for the rear wiper. Anybody know what the problem is & how to fix it. i don't want it to mark my rear window !!!!!!!!!!.

    thanks

    might be the pipe has come off and water is going into the wiper motor causing it to malfunction

    so if you pull the stalk towards you it stays on? if so possible malfunction stalk or motor or something.

    you could just take off the back panel and disconnect the rear wiper till its sorted
