ahhhh ya there is
GOOD LUCK ON THE RELAY, THERE ISN'T ONE, IT IS PART OF THE GEM MODULE, AKA LIGHTING CONTROL MODULE.
Hummmm, so you replaced the wiper motor with a new one, and also the "multi function" switch….the black or chrome lever that operates the wipers and the turn signals…correct? That lever/switch is the most common failure for this problem that I have seen.
If you have replaced both of those, have your mechanic check to see if you have an "intermittent wiper governor". This part is about half the size of a cigarette box and just plugs into the wire harness for the wipers. Look under the left knee area of the driver side dashboard and follow the wire harness from the steering column going to the wiper motor. There should be this box plugged into the wire harness within that section of wires.
Some models had this governor, some do not….so you will have to check to see if yours is equipped with it or not. Your mechanic should be able to tell you this. We have replaced a few of these governors over the years, usually for the intermittent part of the wiper not working…but it COULD be the problem in this case

The problem with this wiper blade set up is the slides get jammed up w/ crude. You should lubricate the slides and they should slide off. Then carfully lift the arm and remove the blade. Warning you should never leave the arm in the upright position. Windshields get cracked this way. Also note the pivit points the blades attach too. These will normally sieze up and cause clearing issues even with new blades. Lubricate these pivit points and use a pair of channel locks to move it back and forth until it will go 360 degrees with your fingers. Install is in reverse order of removal.

Yes, is the same fuse nr.41 (15A) !
For Audi A3 the fuse box is located on the left side of dashboard behind a plastic cover (for left hand steering wheel vehicle). On inner face of the plastic cover you will find the fuse diagram.
The fuse nr.41, (the second fuse from right to left direction, on the second row from bottom to upper direction, on the fuse box), F41 (15A) = Rear screen wash & wipe system !!!
Replace blowed fuse with new one and problem will be solved quickly !
Please rate my response. Thanks!
