    My front wipers suddenly stopped the other day (i didn't realise until i tried to use them when it started raining). The washer jets still work, but the wipers do nothing. The manual says there is a fuse in the bonnet fuse box, i cant remember now which number it says, i think it was like Fuse number 43, but mine only goes up to 42 (or 1 before the number i need anyway). Does the fuse box lift up and there are more below or something?

    The nut linking the arms to the motor came loose on mine and they stopped working,you can get your hand under the motor to see if there's any play.Also read on here that HIDS can cause the motor to go.
