Hello wondering if someone could help if anyone has ran in to the same problem as i am havinig

when i reverse in wet conditions my rear wiper used to do a full wipe and back to its normal starting position, but now iive noticed when i reverse it will only wipe half the screen and stop in the middle of the screen and then i have to turn them back on to get it to go back to its original place?

any help will be appreciated

I may be wrong but I’m sure there was an issue with early models letting water in at the rear wiper

That sounds like a wiper relay to me worth checking

Faulty fuse can cause that.

Hi, when I had this problem VX replaced the wiper motor assembly under Extended Warranty as it had been water damaged.
They did not tell me any more? so worth a check as there are several reports on the Web regarding this failure.

Best of luck.
