VW Sharan 1997 wipers stuck
« on: December 14, 2014, 04:40:05 pm »
Hi, the problem is as follows:

In Wiper Fast position works fine

In Flick Wiper - holding the lever down for the whole time - works fine. If I just press the lever and let it go, as I would normally do, the wiper goes to 12am position and is stuck there. To get it down I have to press the lever down again.

In Wiper slow gets stuck in 12am position. To get it back I have to press the lever down.

Any ideas what the problem might be?

That sounds like the old seizing wiper mechanism. You give the motor a little more voltage in fast wipe so it can overcome more, likewise if you hold the one-wipe down you actually put it into fast wipe after a second or two. ie, flick the one-wipe and it will do (oddly enough) one wipe, hold it down and it will fast-wipe until you let go.

Here. The setup is slightly different on a Mk1 but the basic procedure is the same.

I think you'd struggle to know how much was in their though - its more of a localised application rather then a full on grease party! :)
