Fiat Brava Rear Wiper problems

I seem to have a short circuit in my 97 Fiat Brava 1.6SX Automatic. When I put the rear wiper on, the demister button lights up, and neither the demister or rear wiper work. How hard is it to fix this? How to I get to the wires? do i need to find an auto-electrician? No one in my area deals with Fiats.

i would investigate the contacts on the tailgate, make sure they're clean. then i'd check the wiring inside the tailgate by removing the plastic trim, do continuity tests between the wiper and demister to see if they is a short inside the tailgate. also try getting the wiper to work by wiring it direct to the battery or a known good live and earth.
