Default Rear Wiper stopped working

The other day the rear wiper motor stopped working on my Golf. Is the fuse for the rear wiper in the fuse box on the driverís side? I checked all the fuses there and they are all okay. Any suggestions? I think that the motor might have just died.

Plastic worm gear tends to strip on these, can you hear the motor turn over?

Pull the hatch cover and check the harness plug for voltage while motor is activated.

See if the spray nozzle is corroded. This happened on my Golf and on my Jetta Wagon. I replaced the whole assembly both times.

Did you notice if it was spraying weird(not straight up) before it happened? Mine was spraying left and right for months before it finally quit on me. If you let it sit a long time without using it it may have rusted in one spot(seized). The motor is probably fine.

Hi, I am in the process of diagnosing the rear wiper on a 2002 jetta wagon. I have power to the plug and I cannot remove the wiper blade arm from the motor assembly. I was able to remove the nut, but it seem the wiper arm is froze to the wiper motor shaft. Does any one have any suggestion on how to remove the wiper arm.

That shaft is a taper spline, you have the nut off so gently try to rotate the arm back and forth and is should come off, if not try a gear puller or some penetrating fluid.

I got the cover off tonight to get at the motor. I unpluged the motor and when I turn the switch on I have power at the black wire and no power at the other three wires. When I turn the switch off I still have power at the black wire. Does that seem right?

Does anyone have wiring schematics for a 03 golf? I'm trying to troubleshoot the rear wiper that does not work now.

Thanks

I had this happen to me with the last (sniff) TDI wagon. I found that the shaft failed because it had seized. The outer seal failed and let in the rain and corrosion resulted. I did not hear the motor once this failure happened and the gears (plastic) were still OK when I took the wiper motor apart.
What I found just before it failed for good (seized) was that the spray nozzle moved with the wiper arm, before it did not. Also there was residue inside where the arm shaft passed through the car.

Yes, the black wire is constant system voltage (fuse 27) when the key switch is in the on position.
The brown wire is ground.
The green/white wire gets power (fuse 24) when the switch is put in the wash position.
The green/red wire gets grounded when the switch is put in the rear wipe or wash positions.
