Disabling rear wiper and rear defroster
What's the easiest way to disable the power going to the rear wiper and rear defroster?

Ever since i got rear ended they don't work, but I get this clicking noise, sound like power relaying from the rear.

Could i just take out the fuses for the rear wiper and defroster? Or do i need to unplug or cut some wires?

Did you already get work done through insurance? The rear defroster isn't a mechanical piece.

No, I didn't get insurance work done. Basically, my car got a salvaged title from the rear end collision and I'm trying to drive it as is.

I just keep getting a clicking noise from the back of the car. I know it is probably coming from power going to the rear wiper. Now I'm getting a clicking noise that seems like it's coming from the fuse panel in the front of the car too. The only things that don't work in my car since the accident are the rear wiper and rear defroster, so I'm guessing they are to root of the problem.

I just want to prevent any future problems and also get rid of the extra noise.

I'm pretty much a novice when it comes to electrical stuff so i don't know the best way to get rid of the clicking noise. Any help would be appreciated.
