    Yeah same thing happened to me. Though I think i left it too late - the rear motor doesnt work anymore - so if anyone reading this has deleted their rear wiper and looking to shed some weight - I'll happily take their wiper motor off their hands! (I'll pay P&P etc.)

    Haldex ECU - Fault Code J492

    There is an A - but it really does look like a Y at the end there. As for the cables - did you mean the corrosion to be on the lead or on the multi connector on the ECU itself?
