    Hi Folks

    Thought I'd start this post relating to some wee problems that have popped up.
    Last week on the way home from work when it was pi##ing down my rear wiper decided to die on me,
    not a major problem but a couple of days later, my alarm started going off when I was in the house,
    then again at work the next day, each time I opened the car after resetting the alarm, the panel on the dash said my boot was open.

    Thankfully the car is under warranty, but they can't fit it in till next Sat, they checked it today and told me that water has been
    getting in through the wiper/motor and its shorted out the boot sensor, telling the car that its open when its obviously not.
    So they need to replace the wiper motor before they fix the senser, hopefully that will sort it, because if it keeps setting the
    alarm off, my neighbours will lynch me. Lol

    Common fault. New rear windscreen wiper and lock required - cost circa £130.
