Bad etticate I know replying to oneself but thought I'd post what I found. Took the plastic strip off the tailgate & found the wiper motor wasn't properly fastened. On further investigation I found that the motor isn't actually solidly attached to the tailgate at all. It pushes into 3 rubber spacer/washers which in turn are bolted to the tailgate, unfortunately the plastic doesn't go all the way round so the wiper can pull out of the rubber. A stupid design if ever I saw one, all they had to do was make the plastic go all the way round & make the rubber spacer/washers in two pieces job done. Anyhow, I see a bit of epoxy resin being used to hold it form.

Currently in Phaeton's garage:
