Hi everyone.

This is my first post so thanks in advance.

My 97 2L Diesel wipers have just started playing up. On intermittent wipe the wipers just do about 1/2 stroke then stop then another 1/2 stroke and so on, when on slow speed the wipers stop wherever they are when switched off and dont go back to park position. I think this may be caused by the wiper motor internal contacts. My questions are, am I right in believing it is the motor or could it be a relay. If it is the motor, is it worth taking the motor apart to clean the contacts, how difficult is it to get to the motor as it seems well hidden.

Thanks again. John.

it will be the motor , this normally happens when someone tries to clear the snow with the wipers & then realises it won`t work & switches them off , as they have already started to move they try to go full cycle & park , this leads to the park circuit failing.

Thanks for the very quick replies gents. It was snowing heavily here last week by the way so I think first reply has hit the nail straight on the head. Thanks again.

John
