    Rear wiper suddenly stopped working and annoyingly is stuck about a 1/3 of the way round.

    Have check the fuse, done a quick search on here and come to the conclusion that the motor must have died. How do I get to it? Is there a guide to stripping out the hatchbank inner panel somewhere? I don't want to randomly start yanking it apart.

    Thanks for any help...

    well bugger me if it didn't magically start working once I'd undone the inner panel. oh well fingers crossed.

    come away children, ignore the strange man talking to himself on the internet :happy:

    It will most likely stop again, They usually do.
    Prepare yourself to be replacing the motor at some point.
