Windscrenen Wipers Spider v6


I've searched the previous posts and would be grateful for your advice.

Started the windscreen wipers in intermittent and moved the to the continuous position. At that time they stopped in the intermittent park position and the stalk, in any position, failed to make them move.

I parked the car and move the stalk up and down and could hear the relay work. I left the car for 10 mins and turned the key so the power was on. The windscreen wipers moved to the middle position and then stopped. I turned the key off and was able to move them back to the park position by hand.

They still fail to move; any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance - John.

Re: Windscrenen Wipers Spider v6

a few owners have had to remove their wiper motor/circuit board to solve problems.
if no water has found it's way in on the board then maybe you have a dry solder joint on the board, mine was one of the joints which went straight to the motor. you may also find that far too much grease is used around the copper contacts.

Re: Windscrenen Wipers Spider v6

Hi, just found the case of the problem. It was a dry joint in the control unit on the motor and controller assembly.

Prised the lid of the control unit off and , eventually, found the dry jont on the single post between the control unit and the motor. There appears to have been no solder on it at all. Added a little and it now works fine.
