Hi All, This is a long shot, but does anyone have any information about the wiring for the rear wiper motor on a 9N3? (it's a 55 plate if that matters) Mine hasn't worked for years and I finally got around to looking at it yesterday. Long story short, there is a small circuit board on the wiper motor that's dead. I've driven the motor on a bench from a supply and know it works fine, and I've seen with a voltmeter that the car is sending a signal to activate the wiper, and power. I guess I've got three options, Replace the whole thing. Bit loathed to do this as it's only the circuit board that's bad, and I don't have a great history buying car bits. Build a circuit to replace the dead bit. Ignore it and leave it dead. (As half of the rear heated window doesn't work it's not a brilliant option) I'm interested in making a replacement circuit as I can do it fairly cheaply, however I don't know what all the pins on the connector do. There's a 4-pin plug connecting the motor. Giving the connector pins arbitrary numbers the pin-out is like this, pin 1 - ground pin 2 - ??? pin 3 - 12V pulse when turning on the wiper or 12V constant when activating wash pump pin 4 - 12V constant Does anyone know what 'pin 2' is for, or the kind of signal that is expected here? I've spent ages on Google and found very little at all, only that it's a signal going to the car computer but no idea what it does. Can anyone help please?
Prior to the Polo I did for a while have a Seat Leon (2003), and one of the things I did with it was to change the rear Wiper arm for one from a newer Fabia, as it was a nicer Aero look. Fitting it was easy and the arm wasn't too expensive, I was wondering if there are any similar mods you could do to the 6n2 Polo, certainly wouldn't take the Fabia arm, as it's a much smaller arm & wiper blade. any simple straight swaps from other VAG cars that'd fit on there nicely?
Hi, I'm new here and just bought my 1998 polo. I have a problem with the rear wiper working only if I open the trunk. tried to play with the micro-switch on the door latch when it was open and it really works only when it gets an "open" signal. any ideas? Thanks, Yaron.
