Rear Windscreen Wiper

For some unknown reason, the rear windscreen wiper is not functioning. It is stuck right in the middle of the rear windscreen. Front wipers are operating, but when in reverse the rear wont move. What is the best means of troubleshooting this, if any? Selling the car, but can't sell it like that! Think it maybe an MOT fail as well.... Gawd

Sounds like it has seized, common problem. Either strip it and clean it up or second hand unit off eBay.

yup Mike is on the money, the shafts corrode and seize up fairly frequently. Strip it down, clean it up and it will probably be just fine again. Its the sort of thing you need to do periodically, every year or other year depending upon use etc etc just to keep it going. Not a big job though.

Wiper should be easy as mentioned...

What happened about the head gasket dilemma in your other thread(s) in the end?
