Are you saying it works normally when you don't use the washer, what do you mean by erratically EG. stopping and starting, stopping in the middle of the screen, making noises.

Yes the wires breaking and shorting in the gaiter is a common problem, check in there first.

Hmmm, seems to have stopped when I re-soldered the junction 32 wiring in the passenger doorsill... I soldered a set of green wires while i was in there, they were making a similar junction point?
