Rear Wiper & Passenger Door Mirror Problems

Discussion in 'A3/S3 Forum (8L Chassis)' started by imported_vando, Apr 28, 2005.

  1. Hi,

    I have couple of problems:

    1. My rear wiper has a tendency to stall during its arc across the rear window, it happens every time i use it but then sometimes it will complete a sweep of the window without stopping?!?! Not a major problem but its just a bit annoying!

    2. My passenger door mirror doesn't heat up and I haven't got any idea where the hell to start to try and work out why this might be?

    Cheers for any help!

    Steve

    you can try and take the door mirror off and measure the resistance, if its too high or open circuit which they usually are when they stop working then its a new mirror

    Re: wiper : I would guess that it's been leaking water internally and is starting to seize up: do a search on posts by user "HTC" - he wrote a very good one with pics about why wiper motors play up...
    Here, I'll save you the trouble:
