Rear windscreen wiper fault

I need some help about repairing . So, when i try turn on the switch for rear wiper, it just move for only a few millimeters and then stopped moving. The relay turn wiper off just a few seconds later (i heard it). I tested a relay with weaker fuse (5A instead of 15A) which was burn out in the moment when i turn on rear wiper. I also measured the wires and they are OK.
What is the reason, maybe motor of rear wiper or mechanism is jammed? I also start repairing of the mechanism, but i don't have right tools for unscrew the screw.

Any suggestion how to repair this failure, when i will remove the screws.

Thanks to all

Hi there,

the screws you refer to are not screws but large Pop Rivets, the only way to remove them is to drill them out.

I recently had to replace mine and drilled them out and used nuts and bolts to refit it. You can get the rivets from the dealer but you would need a heavy duty rivet gun to put them in so that's why I bolted it back on.

The motor assembly is probably jamming and you would be better looking for a replacement unit rather than trying to repair your old one.

You don't want to be having to keep messing about with it as it's a pain to keep removing it and putting it back on again.

Hope this helps, Dave.
