Re: Programmable intermittent relay: what's wrong?

I have no idea of the part number but I got my variable interval wiper
relay at my local VW dealer's parts department.  I simply asked for the
variable interval wiper relay and was handed the part (after handing over
some shekels).  I popped it into the wiper relay socket and tried it out.
After a bit of experimentation it worked quite well.  Since then that same
relay has been installed in 1) an '89 200tq 2) a second '89 200tq 3) a '95
S6.  It continues to work as designed even today.
