OK, silly question, but I have to ask. My new-to-me 1986 Golf has a rear
How in heck do I turn it on? I can get the squirter motor to spin, but so
far no joy on the motion of the wiper itself. At least if I know how to get
voltage to it, I can troubleshoot the wiring and the motion, etc.
Sorry if this seems like a lame question, but my Jetta never had a rear
wiper; I have no owners manual, and the bl**dy thing doesn't wanna spin,
OTOH, I installed a very old AM/FM cassette in it y'day -AND- ripped apart
the defrost switch which was partly melted and got it in serviceable
condition............so I'm not totally useless :-)
Thanks guys !
