Question about 2000 Volkswagen Golf

Windshield wipers slow on all settings

For some reason the wipers on my VW Golf are working, but only on a single slow setting. Turning up the speed increases the interval of motion (as it should), but they still wipe at a much slower rate, and always the same rate.

There is no shuddering or uneven motion, just very slow wiping.

If it was the relay, they would not work at all. There is a speed control for the wipers that controls the speed and delay (not the switch in the steering wheel), call the dealer to see if it is a separate module or integrated into the motor (if it is the later, you'll need a rebuilt/new unit).

Hope this helps.

2001 VW Golf Windshield Wipers


You will need to pull the wiper arm off the shaft. The gears on the shafts are most likely worn out. Have you tried to use the wipers when they where stuck or frozen down?
You can buy a tube of JB weld or even better yet JB Underwater Weld. Put a good amount on both shafts and replace wiper arms and secure them down. Wait a couple days at LEAST before using wipers again to ensure that the weld product holds and cures.
