Audi A3 rear windscreen wiper
I have recently bought an Audi A3 and the rear windscreen wiper will not stop. I have unplugged it at the moment, but what is causing this?

Probably moisture ingress to the motor creating an open circuit. Can be caused by the pipe to the rear screenwash popping off inside the rear hatchback frame. For the ESP problem: www.ECUtesting.co.uk or www.sinspeed.co.uk

Good choice of engines. Some petrol engines now chain cam. Comfortable and well built interior. cheap to run 1.6 TDI. Feels very refined especially on the motorway.
