SOURCE: the rear wiper workes if
Hi You may want to check one thing. Roll the rear window down a few inches and then rolll it back up. There must be a relay switch to tell the car the window is open. If that does not work, it might be the relay switch. There are three possible points of failure; the motor, the parking switch, and finally the switch that turns it on. Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.
Obviously, the motor is located in the hatch itself but also there will be a parking switch that supplies power to the motor after the user switch is turned off and until the blade is in the park position. The user switch is of course located on the dash or in a stalk on the steering column. Check for voltage with a multimeter at the motor and/or continuity of it. You should be able to eliminate the items that are working in 20 or 30 minutes.
Thank you for contacting fixya.com

Don't make this more difficult than it is. One of the gears inside the wiper motor is made out of bad quality plastic, and wont last very long. Replace it with a used one is just a wast of money, get a brand new one.

A relay is used to switch on high amperage with low amperage.
Think of amperage or current, as water, a low running stream and a fast flowing river.
The relay will magnetize a coil and pull down contacts to make a circuit.

check fuse first then get the wire checked to see if there is any power going to it you can do this with a bulb and a couple of bits of wire connect wire put it on battery to see if bulb lights up if it does there's your circuit tester use this to see if there is power if still not there will be a break in the wire some where also make sure the earth for the motor is connected if it has one but most as long as they are bolted to body thats your earth hope this helps ivan

SOURCE: Got ford focus 18 zetec climate 57 plate rear wiper not working, but can here clicking sound when I activate the rear wiper. Can not find relay to replace not seen fuse box like this under glove box b
you have multiple fuse boxes I don't know the year of your car because you didn't specify, but I yours is a new one 2015 fuse F42=15 amp & R5 = wiper micro relay but honestly I don't think that's it because you say you here clicking where is the clicking coming from the front or the rear please post back with year and be more specific about where your hearing the clicking sound and what was the cause of he problem you have now EX. did you try to operate the wipers without clearing snow/ice away is the noise/clicking your hearing coming from the back where the motor is/and does it sound like it's cycling as if the motor is working on a normal wiper speed and just the arm is not moving I want to help you and so do others here but if your not as specific as possible about the cars year and what's the exact stuff happening & from where your hearing noise/clicking it's going to be very hard to get you to the problem remember all of us are not standing there at the vehicle with you so what you know/see /hear/and events leading up to the problem will get help a lot to get us there EX. did you go to the car wash & the wiper was on or did the guy there pull on the arm to wipe the window and the net day or so it did not work anymore but you hear the sound of the motor rotating on a normal wiper sweep EX. click then short lapse then click again then lapse again, if so there are rubber bushings under some arms that can be damaged from getting pulled on by people or car wash equipment if the wiper was on & was grabbed by the rotating rags this is it they look like rubber hats that fit on the arms & grip the knurled wiper linkage shaft that attaches to the wiper arm & if pulled on the knurled part cut through the rubber & stripped away the extra rubber that made it fit tight on the linkage please post back with info and I'll get you there if I haven't done that already & say hey Stephen this is Richard with he focus=== year//// symptoms====== what /when/where O.K.
