How to check & change a wiper motor, and repair wiper mechanism on 2001 VW Golf

First time you must diagnose why windscreen wipers going slow and/or stopping.
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. If the electrical feeding is OK you must replace the motor - steps 5, 6. If not, you must check electrical connections, the control switch of wipers and harness.
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.
5. 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!
6. 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.

Rear window wiper wont turn off on my vw golf tdi 2OO2 MODEL


Hi,
Looks like the problem is in the wiper mechanism switch.
Located in the base of your wiper, wires are connected in that area, one contact point might have fused itself to return contact point. Check on that and let us know.
You could check also the rear wiper switch, the contact inside might have fused with "on" contact point.
Hope that stops that reckless wiper!
Thanks for using Fixya!

How do i get out wiper linkage on vw golf 03?


Remove wiper arm by wedging a small flat head or similar tool to remove the cap revealing the 13mm nut. Then remove the rubber gasket holding the rain tray from the engine bay. Remove the tray and the wiper motor, linkage, ECU and the interior air filter will be accessible.

The fan won't shut off after turning off the car. Takes About 12 minutes it will finally turn off. 2000 VW golf.....2.0 ltr VW replaced the ''module'' but that did not solve the problem. The VW dealership...


That fan is to cool the engine. It is normal for it to continue to cool after the enging is shut off and operates much longer in hot weather than in cold weather. If you think it is cooling to long before shutting off I would check the cooling system to see that it is operating correctly. If no and the engine is overheating somewhat that is why the fan runs longer.

The rear wiper on my 2000 golf continues to run intermittently after it is turned off


Turn it off completely. You have two positions for your rear wiper: intermitten and continuous and you have to turn it completely off to have it off. (two clicks)

I have a T25 Transporter 1990 ,front wipers won`t


It sounds like the park switch inside the wiper motor has failed or a bad contact. If you can get to the motor, remove the plate/cover and you should see a micro switch, check it for broken wires or clean contacts. If you dont feel comfortable doing this, then take the car to an auto electrician, he should be able to sort it.
Hope this helps

Hi, the rear windscreen wiper on my 2003 VW POLO has just stopped working. Can you help? Cheers Emma. (For some reason it wouldn't let me select polo from the pick list for VW cars.)


The most common reason for this is a blown fuse, so using your vehicle owners book locate and check the fuse first. (if you don't have one then buy a Haynes manual for your car, the cost will pay for itself with the first repair you do). Modern automotive fuses not only have the current rating clearly marked numerically, but are colour coded and the fuses are designed so that you can easily see if they're blown when you pull them out to check. Most modern vehicle fuseboxes have a few spare fuses included and often have a small plastic tool to assist with pulling them out.

Normally a blown fuse needs further investigation as they should only fail if there's been a problem which would otherwise cause fire or other damage, but if wipers are operated inappropriately then it can cause enough load to blow the fuse. Sometimes the wiper spindles can become worn allowing water to get in and corrode the internal parts; this will cause the spindles to bind or even seize up and also cause the wiper motor to draw sufficient current to blow the fuse.

Inappropriate use includes operating the wipers when the screen is dry, trying to use them to clear snow, ice or debris, operating them if the blades or arms are damaged.

If your problem turns out to be more than a straightforward blown fuse then please add a comment to my answer and I'll try to give you more specific advice. If my answer has solved your problem then please return the favour by rating my answer.

Windshield wipers on 03 silverado does not shot off,


Your wiper motor has shorted out and needs replacment.
In order to find out you need to disconnect the wiring from the wiper control switch,with the ignition on, if the wipers stop then you need to replace the switch.
If the wipers keep running, then you have a defective motor, replace the motor.

Wipers stay on


Hi,
There are several possible causes, and maybe a fault code scan would help. You did not say whether the intermittent wipe and various speeds work - do they? In the meantime, check that the wiper stalk is in the correct position.
You could also try removing the front wiper relay to see if that stops them - if so get an auto electrician to try a replacement relay before buying it ;-)
and you could try removing the "rear" wiper fuse - yes rear, if your car has rear wipers. Then please let me know if any of these ideas had an effect! Well take it from there.Thanks, D
