SOLVED: Rear Wiper Seized
Just spent a couple of weeks by the sea without moving the car. The rear screen was covered in salty spray so I attempted to wipe it clean. Nice spray of clean water but just a one inch movement of the wiper then nothing. I checked the fuses which were all ok so then followed up on some posts here about seized spindles. It was.
Spent a satisfying afternoon stripping it down and putting the shaft in an oil bath. The removing of the trim is 'difficult'. It's now working perfectly.
Here's a PDF of the process...
EDIT: I have a better quality PDF but the site rules have constrained me!
