Hi, I have a VW polo gti 16v 6n2 and went to use the wipers last night and the back one wouldn't switch off just kept going. the water jet doesn't seem to be working on the back as there was no water coming out, then the front wipers started going and wouldn't stop had to pull the fuse on both front and back. Also when i pressed the back wiper button the headlight washer activated and sprayed. Sounds like a short somewhere. Any ideas what is causing this issue? the stalk is okay, when i move it to the fast potion it speeds up and slows down when moved back but doesn't switch off in the off position. Update: When the boot is open the front wipers and back wiper stops so tried testing the lock with with boot lid open and it went off so looks like its coming from the locking mechanism on the boot lid
Hi guys, my wiper motor has packed up on my 76 polo. I've stripped cleaned and reassembled it which got it going very slowly but it has stopped again. Does anyone know where I could pick up a motor that would work on my car? I can't find one listed anywhere. Failing that can anyone recommend a good repair place that can salvage this one? The mechanism is well lubed and moving freely. Thanks!
Evening all, ive got a problem with the wipers on my 2002 9N polo. It’s been going on for a while now but when the weather clears for a while I forget about it. Ive got an issue with the wipers, most notably the intermittent wipers. They’ll work when I turn on the car and put the wipers on, but they might only do a few wipes then just stop wiping. I can sometimes get round it by pushing them all the way up to the fastest setting, then all the way down and holding the stalk down to get the wipers to work. I normally have to try this 4-5 times until it works. If I let go of the stalk when it’s all the way down, before they’ve completed 2 swipes, they’ll just stop where they are and not park. It doesnt happen all the time, just typically when the rain is the worst! They’ve stopped working at least 5 times on the 40 minute journey home from work today. I went through all the relays and turns out there’s no relay for the wipers, and a bit of googling tells me it’s all done by the central computer or something? The only way I can get them to work is by having them on the constant setting, if I leave on intermittent they’ll stop working. But not all the time! It’s doing my head in. Any pointers? I can hear the click that the wipers make when on intermittent but they just don’t move. Likely to be a stalk issue, a motor issue or what? Thanks in advance for your help. Cheers, Alex.
