    Rear Windscreen wiper problem

    Forum Key Rings
    I have a 2009 (58 plate) Insignia. The rear wind screen wiper is acting up. Basically it will operate on continuous but when you turn it off it stops exactly where it is and doesn't return to start and the intermittent is very intermittent stopping and starting all of the time.

    I have checks the fuses and oiled the workings etc but no joy

    Any ideas?

    I'd put a bet on it being the actual motor.
