You will need new wiper blades before you can perform a wiper blade replacement project. Get your "owner's car manual" as it will tell you everything you need to know about the wipers' size and type. The manual may also give you list of brands you can choose from for you wiper blades.
Buy the correct wiper blades, make sure you have bought the entire blade and not just the rubber insert. Read the instructions properly before you begin. It will show you how to perform the wiper blade replacement.
Take the wiper arms off the windshield. You will have to remove the old wiper blades very carefully so you don't hurt yourself. Wear kitchen gloves if you don't want to get your hands dirty or cut yourself.
Push on the tab of the old wiper blades and pull them out. You can also use a small screwdriver to lift the tab.
Take the new wiper blades and insert it in the arms very carefully. Don't push too hard, but do it gently. It will easily slide itself in. You will hear a "click" sound when the entire blade has gone inside.
Wiggle or shake the new wiper blades to see they are secured properly and won't fly away when you turn them on. If all looks good, lower the wiper arms back on the windshield. And you're done!
The wiper motor on a Volkswagen is an electric motor connected through a drive linkage to the wiper arms. Windshield wipers are an integral feature for operating a motor vehicle safely. If your wipers are not functioning, or seem to lack the speed or power they used to have, the wiper motor should be removed and replaced immediately .
The wiper motor on a Volkswagen is located directly underneath the plastic cowl cover. The cowl cover is located directly below the windshield.
Begin by removing the wiper arms by prying off the covers at the base of the arms and removing the nuts that secure the arms to the drive shafts. Label the passenger and driver arms so they can be installed in the same positions. They are not interchangeable. Remove the rubber hood to cowl weather seal. Unscrew the plastic fasteners from the driver's side of the cowl cover, then remove this half of the cover. Remove the fasteners from the passenger's side cowl cover and remove this half of the cover. Disconnect the windshield wiper motor wiring harness by separating the plastic wiring connector. Remove the three bolts that secure the wiper motor to the vehicle's body. Pull the motor slightly away from the body, then remove the nut that connects the motor shaft to wiper linkage. Remove the motor.
Place the new wiper motor into position in the cowl and reconnect it to the wiper arm linkage. Then reinstall the three retaining bolts. Reconnect the plastic wiring connector to the wiper motor wiring harness. Place the cowl covers into position below the windshield and reinstall the plastic fasteners that retain them. Reinstall the rubber hood to the cowl weather seal. Reinstall the wiper arms in the same position you removed them from, along with the wiper arm retaining nuts and lower wiper arm covers. Turn the windshield wipers on and test for proper operation. If the wiper blades slap against the bodywork surrounding the windshield, loosen the nuts that connect the wiper arms to the shafts and adjust.
You should be able to purchase from the dealer just the rubber inserts, not the complete wiper. Look on the end of the wiper insert and it should be "locked" in by a tab into the rubber. Pull on this end of the insert and it should slide out of the wiper frame. In either side of the old rubber insert should be a thin steel reinforcing insert, remove these and reinstall them into the new rubber inserts. Now guide the new rubber inserts into the wiper and be sure to make sure that tab locks into the rubber insert.
1. check the fuse to the rear wiper motor
2. check for power to rear wiper motor at the motor (power wire going in to the wiper motor with rear wiper switch on)
If you have good fuses & have power going in to the rear wiper motor...
3. Pull old rear wiper motor and install a new rear wiper motor.

hi from uk have come up against this problem on hondas and if you wish ? you can replace the wiper rubbers as i have done by going to halfords or other motor supermart and purchase the rubber/blades either same length or longer ? then remove the steel blades from each side of the rubbers on wipers by pulling from bottom whilst flexing the wiper clear ok? then pull out the rubberblade with patience you can easily feed new rubber into w/blade /make sure you insert right way ie there is a notch in rubber that goes to top look carefully ? then re fit steel blades one at a time into grooves in rubber making sure the top locates into notch in rubber job done ! and huge saving on having to buy complete arms and blade in uk rubbers approx £4 a pair ps if you get the longer rubber you can cut to same size as old b4 fitting hope this helps ?
