Issue with rear wiper

Well my rear wiper is acting up. It moved very slowly and seemed to be struggling. I guess the motor is on it's last legs. Great!

Anyone else have a similar issue?

Re: Issue with rear wiper

No, I can't say that I have seen any related issue with the rear wiper, or the motor yet bud.

Re: Issue with rear wiper

Mine did the same thing on Saturday. One pass was slow then the next pass it only went about 1/3 of the way. I had to "help" it finish the pass so it wouldn't be stuck in the middle of the window. I have tried a couple of times since with the same results. At least I'm not alone.

Re: Issue with rear wiper

Tried out the rear wiper these past 2 days and it's working fine now. Go figure!

Re: Issue with rear wiper

Here's an update on this issue. The rear wiper stopped working entirely last week. Brought it in this morning to the dealer. Motor is completely seized. First time they've seen one on the WK2. They've ordered a new one. Going back on Thursday for that.

Re: Issue with rear wiper

Easy fix as long as the problem was isolated in the wiper motor and not caused by something else causing the wiper motor to seize. Thanks for the update and keep us posted on the outcome of this potential "fix.'

Re: Issue with rear wiper

Dealer replaced the motor this morning and it's like new again. I also find it's operation more quieter. There was this moan before.
