147JTD rear wiper wiring problem

Hi. Just had my car in my local garage to check out a couple of faults. First one was the rear wiper. A while back it stopped working and then seemed to start again a few hours later. It officially died about 2 weeks ago. Garage have checked motor etc, nothing clogged up. They said it is a wiring problem between a and b and have said although they could fix it they felt it would be quicker for the Alfa garage to fix as they know the exact layout of the wiring.

Has anyone had this problem before? Any ideas of how much time/labour it will take to remedy? I hear my bank account draining as i type!

Second problem was with motor control system failure light coming on after i pulled away fairly sharpish from a roundabout - the car judddered and clanked but engine did not cut out. This now seems to have cleared itself (touch wood!). It's been a good 6 months since i had any problems with the motor control light after i got the crank sensor replaced.

As he guy in the garage said 'Alfa's, like many Italians, are beautiful to look at, but they're a little crazy inside!'
