    this is just a simple job of unbolt the wiper motor, block the hole with a grommet and bob's your uncle?

    I'm worried it might cause fault lights since this whole damn car is CAN-BUS

    ive done this with every car with a rear wiper ive ever owned, its a great and cheap mod...smoothes out the back of the car nicely.
