Question about 1999 Volkswagen Jetta
Hi...Our windshield wipers just barely work. When my hubby gets the RPMs up, it seems to help, but still not normal. We've had the wiper motor replaced (twice), so it seems unlikely that its the same thing. What should we be looking at as potential problems?
If its a relay, how do you know if its bad? Do I test, check for continuity, voltage, amperage, resistance? Is there any way to test for the problem without simply replacing any component it might be, unless its a cheap component (are there any cheap components on VWs?)
Winter is upon us, and I appreciate any suggestions...we're at a loss, and so is our mechanic (who isn't as familiar with VWs and diesels as we'd like). Thanks in advance!!!! Sandy
Probably the wiper arms are rusted,,open the engine,take our the wiper arms and oil them a bit, should help i believe. Cheers. Tamer
