    Wiper woes

    it has come to that time that my wipers have decided not to park themselves properly on the intermittent setting.

    my question is (before i attempt the "home fix")

    1, where is the intermittent relay located (as its not the one in the car by my knees as far as i can see as the replacement is different size and shape and has an extra pin which prevents me connecting it to fuse board)
    and
    2, upon removal of wiper arms and drainage plastics, in the gully below the wiper assembly there is a connector, just sat there doing nothing, with absolutely nothing to connect it to. what is it for?

    dont know what the connector is for, and my car does this. its not the relay its the wiper motor. Changing this fixed it with a second hand motor, but then this went another while down the line.

    The relay by your knee is the only one for the wipers so it must be the wrong relay your trying to replace

    Only other thing up in the stuttle panel is the alarm horn

    well according to the person i bought the relay off, that one "by my knee" (as it shall now be known, lol)

    The relay you've removed should have the following part number stamped on it:- 13230560.

    when i informed him that the relay i removed had the code 90191753. he repied

    that relay is the main relay, not the intermittent one. The intermittent one is larger than the one you've removed. It may be behind the fuse box.
    is he talking arse?
