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!:mad:

Anyone else have a similar issue?

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

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.

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

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.

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.'

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.

Great! Hope you never see that problem again.
