VW Bora wiper problem

X reg VW Bora - the wipers have stopped working. They try to work but only cover a tiny distance. If I pull them off of the windscreen, it is slightly better. This has happened before after there has been a long dry spell but have usually got their act together after a while.

Have you checked the wiper motor and linkages to make sure they are properly lubricated? Take care to keep your fingers clear of the (hopefully) moving parts! Your typical can of maintenance spray might get them going initially, but grease is really needed in the long run. D.

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.

On my Kia Sportage 'V' reg my windshield wipers stopped working. it isn't the fuse and you can hear the motor trying to work.How do I remove the wipers so that I can lift the plastic cowling between...


Some wiper arms are simply a push fit onto the drive shafts and some have a nut securing them on under a cover which has to be lifted up first. Try lifting up any plastic covers on the base of the arm at the windshield. If it looks like there is no cover then the arms are held on by the force of the springs and by a taper on the drive shafts and if you lift the arms off the windshield and gently rock them as you pull them away from the vehicle they will release..Just make sure that before you refit the arms that you run the wiper motor and allow it to self park as I have seen wiper arms remove paint when they have been dragged off the windscreen and over the paintwork and the wiper motor is easily powerful enough to cause real damage..

Hummer H2 rear wiper and sprayer came on by itself


It sounds like the wiper control module. The wipers on my 2003 did the same thing. After I pulled the fuse for the rear wiper, the front wipers started acting up as well. I had to pull fuses to stop them too. There is a recall on 2003 H2's for this issue. The cover of the wiper module on 2003s for the allows rain/water to get into the module. The cover will be replaced for free, however, in my case since the module was full of water and my wipers were not working, they replaced the module for free also. Not sure how much it would cost to replace on a 2005.

The wipers on my 1.9TD Bora stops working intermittently. They usually start again if left for a while.


The problem in most cases is the wiper switch contacts, this is very common. You will need to replace the switch to correct the issue.
