I have checked the fuse but it definately isnt that because there are other things that hang off the same fuse that are working fine. I also visually checked the terminal connectors at the rear screen and they look fine. The wiring disappears into the rear door frame after those terminals until the loom from the rear door to the car ceiling.

There is no physical damage to any visual part and nothing happened recently that would account for it to stop working (bloody electrics lol)

Any help would be much appreciated

many thanx
First thing to do is to check whether or not there is power at the terminals, either with a multi meter or a bulb type tester, if there is, then its the connections/elements on the window. Check the relay and the switch, these can only really be done by substitution (unless you have heated mirrors, if they are working you can rule this out), if it turns out not to be any of these, then it can only be a break in the wire somewhere.
