Clicking is probably the relay, so that sounds like it is ok. Could be the wiper motor itself that has failed. If it is easily accessible you could try applying 12volts directly to the motor.

Could be worth checking the relay, just because it is clicking doesn't mean it is actually switching on properly. Easiest way is probably to fit another relay in its place, fromone of the other circuits if one is compatible.

I presume by now you will have solved the puzzle but if not..

Do the same test whilst the motor is wired into the car loom but not connecting to the wiper arm mech, remembering to earth it to the car body or earth feed.

Any luck ?

If it the motor turns ok then maybe a little lub on the mech would help.

If not check the earth is good ( i,e, use a star washer under the earth point to make sure it will make good contact with the car )

thanks to all who replied to my post.i have found cause of my trouble.the clicking from inside the fuse box was not as distinct as rear wiper . i noticed that fuseboard would split and was going to have a look inside,but by chance there was one on ebay and i got it for a tenner (couldn't believe it).swapped them round and now i have front wipers.so i assume wiper timer relay and electronics are built into internals of fuse box which is not the easiest place to get to.if fusebox had not been for sale i would have been in a whole world of pain,£250+vat+labour to be precise .so thanks to all again and i hope this is a solution for anybody with the same problem in the future.

Now I am glad I didn't buy that fuse box because I was gonna snap it up as a spare ( just in case )

Nice to hear all sorted..

Is this relay in the black UCH connected to the fuse box or inside the actual fusebox? I have the same weak clicking noise and non functioning wipers...
