View Full Version : Windshield Wipers are Dead

So on my to LA last weekend I went to use my sprayer and wipers to clean some bugs. The sprayers worked fine but the wipers didn't budge at all (not the slightest movement).

I checked all my fuses on the outside panel. My boost gauge light is working fine (75x), blinkers are working fine - everything is good except my wipers. I tryed to VAG the central electric but recieved no response from controller. Probably because my ndbw doesn't have the feature.

The wipers were working fine the last time I used them, and now aren't working at all. Which makes me think it would be a switch or relay somewhere. I did a search and found people that had a bad relay next to the 75x but they also said other things were not functioning aswell. Hmmmm.

The linkage is seized if it's a face lift for sure.

Ive had my wipers fail during use. It was pouring and i was wiping at full speed then they just stopped in mid action, stuck in the middle of my windshield. The motor was shot, dont rule that out. I replaced my wiper motor and everything is all dandy now.
