I posted this on the Friday RRants and RRaves thread, but I wanted to repost in hopes of getting an answer:<p>The rear wiper on the R crapped out this week -- the intermittent wipe works intermittently, only sweeping part-way across the glass.<p>The motor was under warranty (I replaced it last August) so Lehman Motors in Harrisburg said they would exchange it for a new one. <p>Got the new motor but did the same thing.<p>Talked to the parts manager -- he says his son's V70 had the same problem. Turned out to be the wiring harness in the rear door. <p>Have any of you VR owners done the swap? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>I can't see any real problems other than getting to the plug behind the driver's side hinge. <p>EDIT: I tried searching here<p><A HREF="http://vccs.volvocars.se/accessories/ii/search.aspx" TARGET="_blank">http://vccs.volvocars.se/acces....aspx</A><p>but couldn't find any info. Does anyone with VADIS have the answer?<p>Thanks

Re: VR Rear Wiper Wiring Harness (SteveP)

Are you looking for info on how to remove the trim panels on the tailgate?

Does it have to be removed when the harness is replaced?<p>Thanks

Re: VR Rear Wiper Wiring Harness (SteveP)

Rear wiper motor gone. Just stopped. Still clicking. I can hear the circuit breaker going off and on. Motor extremely hot to touch still. Disconnected power clip. New wiper motor ordered and going in under VIP warranty. I guess I better look at the harness also?
