Hi - had the same problem with mine last year - turned out to be a sticky relay. You can probably hear it clicking with each wipe. These are well over £20 from the dealer, around £5-10 from a breaker, or if you like a challenge (like me) you can unclip the plastic cover off the relay and lightly dress the contacts with a nail board! Good luck.

Audi a4 wipers only work on fast the switch wasent working even when turned off they kept going fast now they have stopped working compelely

I have a idea you can try because it has worked for me befors.
The switches on volkswagen as well as audi are very small on a micro switch level.
any spill or moisture can cause them to stick or fail.
I have tried different things to clean them so the switches would work again, the best thing I've used id starting fluid sold at your local wallmart.
Just spray the switch while at the same time move and click the problem switch.
Try to work in the fluid into the switch.
Starting fluid has either in it and it dries almost on contact but it cleans like nothing you have ever used before,should be able to clean whatever materal could be causing the switch to fail.
Good luck,Gary

A4 wipers run and stop in the middle of the cycle and do not retrun to bottom of the windshield. What needs to be done to fix this?

Sounds like you may need to replace the wiper transmission which has the motor and both rods attached to it. Dealer calls it a wiper transmission or bracket. Most Audi dealers in area will stock it, especially this time of year.

I have audi 14 wiper blades are not working

It is possible that the linkage is jammed. Try turning the wipers on and gently pull the wiper arm by hand to see if it will move. It it starts to move you've found the problem.

If it doesn't move at all and the fuses are ok it is likely the wiper motor that has failed.

I have an audi a4 2.5 tdi 52 plate 03 reg, the wiper motor has started moving very slowly sometimes stopping {impossible to drive in the rain} is this just the motor needing replaced?

its not the moto!!!its the part were the wiper arms bolt on through the scuttle have to take it all out and put it in a bench vice and drill a very small hole in the aloy part so you can get some spray in to it!!once it is freed up fill the hole with grease to stop water getting in it.i did the same thing to an audi a6 a few weeks ago.

2001 Audi A4 Windshield Wiper Issues....Work on their own

The most likely cause of your symptoms is the wiper motor parking relay has become faulty, however there is a slim possibility the connections within your wiper switch could be an issue, but the relay would be my first and cheepest line of enquiry. Contact your local VAG dealer and expect to pay somewhere in the region of £15. Good luck
