    At Welldonehid we have been doing research for years about the wiper motor problem in the Audi A3 8P.

    As most of you may know, the wiper motor will stop working after using aftermarket HID kits.
    Audi Dealers know about this issue so they will reject to repair any wiper motor even if the car is under guarantee.


    The only HID kit that can be installed is the Welldone A38P, specially designed for the Audi A3 8P (2003-2012)
    Xenon A38P - Welldone Lighting

    We developed first this HID in 2009 & after some months of test in some A3 owners, vehicles we finally launch it to the market.
    Since then about 10 Group Buys were made in different Audi forums around the world.

    Unfortunately not everybody knows about this & some people find out to late, once their wiper motor is already broken for using a non compatible aftermarket HID kit.

    That is the reason why we also worked to find a solution for all this people who had a broken wiper motor.
    We came to the conclusion that the wiper motor could we repaired & so we have been doing that for the last years.

    Since used A3 wiper motors are very rare to find & the new ones are very expensive, many clients around Europe are sending their wiper motors to be repaired.

    For those who find themself in this situation they can request online the wiper motor repair in our website.

    To request the wiper motor repair you just need to follow this steps.
    - Make an order online
    - Select the payment method (Credit, bank transfer, PayPal)
    - Send your broken wiper motor to our warehouse.

    Recently we received this wiper motor.
    Was broken after using a non compatible HID kit.

    We proceed to disassemble & repair.
    Shortly the client will have the wiper motor in his A3 fully working again.

    Remember, regular aftermarket HID kits will blow away your wiper motor.
    If you want to install HID in your A3, we recommend to use only our A38P HID kit or the new OEM HID kits Valeo & Mitsubishi.
    Is the only safe way to install HID kits on Audi A3.

    2 more wiper motor received.

    One is from France.
    The other is from Portugal

    Wiper motor from France was manipulated.
    Client tried to repair it & he broke few inner parts, fortunately we were able to fix the mess :wacko:
    We had quite a hard time trying to solve the problems with the broken parts

    This is not something everybody can do by their own. Do not try to repair by yourself, you will probably end up having to buy a new motor.
    We can not guarantee our work if the wiper motor was manipulated.
    For that reason we will refuse to repair manipulated motors.

    Hi Bagger_12

    You won't be able to replace them with regular H7 HID bulbs.
    We use special HID bulbs designed to work with the Audi A3, not common aftermarket bulbs.
    The A38P HID kit is different from any other HID kit in the market.
    That is the reason why it's safe for your wiper motor.
    If you were able to use regular aftermarket bulbs you would most likely end up blowing up your wiper motor.

    The price for the A38P HID kit is £127 (-20% discount for GB)
    Audi A3 - Welldone Lighting


    Shipment to Cornwall is £5.75
    You can also pick them up in one of the stores in GBP to avoid shipping fees.

    Another wiper motor received & repaired.
    In this case, the wiper motor is from a Peugeot 407.

    Peugeot 407 suffer from the same problems after using aftermarket HID kits.
    We also use our Welldone A38P HID kits for Peugeot 407 with great results.

    Peugeot 407 has 2 wiper motors, instead of only 1 as the A3.
    One motor is Master & the other Slave.

    - Left Motor = Master
    - Right Motor = Slave

    The right (slave) wiper motor is the one that will broke after using non compatible HID kits.
    This can be verified just by disconnecting the slave motor. Then you will be able to see how the wiper blades work again.

    Audi A3, Peugeot 407 & Volvo V40 they all have the same problem.
    (HID = High Voltage cables = broken wiper motor)

    They use the same wiper motors with minor changes like different connectors.
    We recommend not to use regular aftermarket HID kit on this vehicles.
    Is just an advice from our experience. We fix wiper motors every single week.

    As you can see the only difference is the connector.

    So what your saying is basically the bulbs you sell carry the device that stops the wipers from blowing?

    No, what you are saying is imposible there is not such a "device".

    You can not buy a dirty cheap HID kit & use a "device" to solve the problem.
    This is not how it works.

    You have to chose the right HID kit, compatible with Audi A3 from the beginning without adding anything.


    Any of this HID kits will work for your Audi A3.

    Wiper motors for UK vehicles are different than wiper motors in other European markets.
    UK wiper motors have reversed connectors & supports.

    Here you can see pics of the last 2 motors received.

    - Audi A3 wiper motor (Spain)
    - Peugeot 407 wiper motor (Spain)

    Remember that to avoid the wiper motor problem in the Audi A3 & Peugeot 407 you need to use Welldone HID kits specially designed for those vehicles.

    (Also you can install the new OEM HID kits Valeo & Mitsubishi)

    REMEMBER:
    Aftermarket HID kits can not be installed in the Audi A3 8P (also Peugeot 407).
    Adding relays, battery harness & other devices to an aftermarket HID kit DO NOT avoid the problem.
    Only Welldone HID kits are safe for your wiper motor since they are specially designed to avoid this issue.
