I don't know the name of the part but I do have a temporary solution. They have this product called quicksteel, it doesn't activate until you knead it together it cures fast but it's not hard at all to take off once you've found the replacement part your looking for. Which by the way I was able to find this array of shafts unless i'm mistaken they are what you need now its just a matter of finding one. I live close to a VW specialty shop and see what they have or if they can point to the right place better yet I just found their contact info no one knows your vehicles like you so give them a ring.

SOURCE: VW Golf 200. Rear windscreen wiper not working, I

a common problem with the golf hatchback is where the cables run thru from the car to the tailgate they pass thru a rubber boot surround by the hinges. because the bootlid is open and closed many times the wires that control items on the tailgate can break.
take off the rubber boot from one side where it fits to the car and slide it back over the cables that are inside it and if you see some cables are broken that is your problem.rejoin the cables and it should be ok.this is something to check after you know that the switch is ok, it is quite a common problem. hope this helps.

Hi, Had the same problem, just found the fault,it was a brcken wire causing relay109 to drop out. It was in the upper of the two harnesses on the bulkhead above the air filter, if you pull back the outer sleave and check the thin black/white wire for a break I think you will find your problem. You should have 12v between it and positive. Good luck.

Windscreen wipers and washers need diagram 1992 t4 vw camper van


Nobody is going to give you an exact wire trace here, I can bet my bottom dollar on it. You will need to painstakingly trace your wiring from the wiper switch on the steering column to the relay and then to the fuse box, then to the wiper motor to discover your fault.
Please stay in touch.

Windscreen wipers not working on my vw passat 2005 '05' but washers are working!


First time you must diagnose why windscreen wipers going slow and/or stopping.
If the windscreen wipers fuse is good:
In order to find out the cause of wipers stopping you can try follows:

1. Carefully extract the wiper arms from their axles (two pieces). In some cases you need to use an extracting tool. Heed of the windscreen !!!
2. Disassemble the plastic covers from the bottom of the windscreen.
3. With the bonnet up you can start the engine, (transmission in "N" or "P" position and parking brake on). Now you must switch on the control lever of the wipers, and go to the engine compartment. If the wiper motor runs let the wiper motor running for a few minutes and switch off. Go to the step 4. If the wiper motor do not runs you must check first the electrical feeding of the motor. It is necessary to unscrew three bolts of the mechanism and disconnect the electrical coupling (difficult assurance). If the electrical feeding is OK you must replace the motor - steps 5, 6, 7. If not you must check electrical connections, the control switch of wipers and electric cables.
4. Now you must check the two bearings of wiper mechanism with your hand. In the most cases the left bearing is out of order (is very hot). This is the most encounter fault of the wipers.
5. For have enough space to manipulation the wiper motor together with their mechanism you must extract the plastic cover of the engine computer box, and extract also the box screws. Then you can move slowly the engine computer box, just for a few milimeters.
6. You must disconnect the electrical coupling of the motor (difficult assurance), unscrew three bolts of the mechanism and extract together with the motor. You must move them slowly between windscreen and engine computer box until the wiper motor go out together with the mechanism. This is the most difficult operation!
7. Now you can repair the bearings, replace entire wiper mechanism or replace the wiper motor. It is not very simply, but it works.
Heed of the windscreen !!!
Refit all in reverse order.
