Rear wiper washer fluid pipe came apart at pillar (boot) then wiper stopped working.After fixing washer and drying out wiring and multiplugs wiper started to run erratically.Problem seems to be in boot lock "switching".Switch on Latch ,lower back panel,(brown+blue wiring) appears Ok.....is this the controlling switch, or is it in lock proper????
