It is not very difficult to replace the wiper motor, but first you must diagnose this problem. 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 running at Audi.
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 in reverse order.
Success!

SOURCE: front wipers stopped working but you can hear the motor run also

If the wipers were buried under snow/ice or frozen to the windshield, you may have blown the red 10 amp fuse located in cavity 9 in the fuse block located on the bottom left side of the instrument panel near the parking brake pedal.
In order of easiest to check:
1) ensure wipers not frozen to windshield.
2) ensure wiper arms are not loose on the pivot stud,
3) check the red 10 amp fuse.
You stated that "you can hear the motor". Which motor do you hear? The engine or the wiper motor?
If you hear the wiper motor, then the fuse is alright. Try 1) and 2) above.

Check that you have connected the wiper motor correctly - ensure that you havent inadvertently got the polarity wrong!.
Leave the wiper arms off until you get the motor to run and park using the normal wiper on/off switch.
The motor 'park' control switching is normally an integral part of the motor drive gear and is not adjustable.
During your testing, affix a temporary indicator pointer to the end of a wiper arm drive shaft (use masking tape or similar) to prevent damage to motor or levers.

Hi i have a mk4 golf, my front wipers were slow but now have stopped altogether, any ideas what problem could be?


If they slowly died it is most likely the wiper motor. Over time the brushes in the motor will wear down and the motor will need replacement.

Windshield Wiper Motor could be causing starting and stopping where it feels like: REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Fig. 1: Remove the water shield fasteners 91226p14.jpg
Fig. 2: Using a suitable pry tool, lift up the base of the clip while turning the head 91226p13.jpg
Fig. 3: View of water shield retaining clip 91226p15.jpg
Fig. 4: Removal of the water shield weather stripping 91226p16.jpg
Fig. 5: Pull away the water shield 91226p45.jpg
Fig. 6: Remove any dirt and debris from the under the water shield at this time 91226p43.jpg
Fig. 7: Detach the wiper motor wiring harness 91226p48.jpg
Fig. 8: Removing the wiper motor and linkage assembly 91226p39.jpg
Fig. 9: Remove the screws from the wiper motor assembly 91226p40.jpg
When removing the wiper motor, leave the mounting frame in place. If possible, do not remove the wiper drive crank from the motor shaft.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable and remove the water shield at the base of the windshield.
  2. Disconnect the relay rods from the wiper motor.
  3. Note the position of the crank arm on the shaft. When the motor is in the parked position, the arm should be about 4 degrees up from horizontal.
  4. Disconnect the wiring and remove the bolts to remove the motor from the frame. To install:
  5. Temporarily connect the wiring and run the motor. When the wiper switch is turned OFF, the motor will stop in the parked position.
  6. Install the motor and connect the linkage.
  7. Run the motor again and make sure the arms and blades are properly positioned when the motor stops.

After looking at the schematics, I couldn't determine which subsystem may be causing your problem with the headlights. There is a daytime running lamps subsystem, but I am not sure if that's causing the problem. There are fuses involved but not sure if that's the problem.

There's a solid state headlight switch, but I'm not sure if that's a problem.

On the headlight issue, if it doesn't come back, just consider it a bug or glitch.

Have you had a battery changed on it recently?

Location of front wiper motor relay and code stop working only rear wiper working but when you pull the wiper towards you instead of pushing away? can't find the location and have tried to find relay with...


The rear wiper is on "off" position when you pull the "stick".
The relays are under the steering wheel. if you bend yourself down to the pedals, look up, ant there is a litle door, fixed with some nuts. remove them, pull the plastic just to look inside, and you'll see the relays. the relay that control the wiper system is the bigger one. is one relay for front and back. You could open it and you'll see two electromagnets which controls some contacts. you could try clean them with a soft and clean cloth(tissue). Also check the fuses. The fuses are located on the side panel trim from the driver's door. The fuses for front and back wiper sistem are separated. On the back of the panel from the fuses you'll see a diagram with what each fuse does.Good luck.
