Re: windscreen wiper fuses

i take it you've checked the diagram on the back of the interior fusebox cover? if its not there you need to check the engine bay fuse box. just look for a wiper symbol on the diagrams.

Re: windscreen wiper fuses

Windscreen wiper fuse is a 20Amp (Yellow). It's in the main fusebox, second one down on the right hand column of the 3 x 5 set of fuses. Also serves windscreen washer and rear wash/wipe. I blew this fuse a few times last week while fitting a punto rear wiper motor into my brava

Is there no list online of these fuse locations? I'm only getting it out of the manual, I could copy in the whole list if necessary, there seems to be a lot of fuse questions.

Re: windscreen wiper fuses

when i pop the wipers on intermittent after about half an hour they stop being intermitent and go on full without switching a switch

then ya have to turn em off and leave em or turn of the car for intermitent to work again.

it don't happen all the time but its very annoying.

Re: windscreen wiper fuses

sounds like a relay problem, its a strange one though?!
could also be the effect of heat in the stalk, does it feel hot when this happens?

Sounds like the intermittent relay has gone, its found on the actual wiper motor itself. You will need to remove the scuttle panel to gain access. I have a front windscreen wiper full motor and linkages on the classified section that was fully working when removed. I suppose you could take the relay out of it and put it in yours.

Re: windscreen wiper fuses

change the fuse? if the fuse was the problem it would never work.
