wiper motor relay

been looking for 2 days for a wiper motor relay. seems that the only way im going to get a new relay is by going to the local stealership. motor factors in this area of wales dont stock them.

unless the rear relay is the same as the front is this correct. as i dont really use the rear wiper that much. i dont think it does but would like confirmation.

o.o I have relays comin out of my wazooo XD $5+ship

granted may not be new but there tested and fully workin with a 30 day

upon further checking the relay only controls the intermittent option it doesn't operate it on full run.. switch the rear for the front and see if it works fixing your park problem if it does not you need a new front wiper motor... there are occasional problems with the park switch INSIDE the wiper motor assembly (Cannot be repaired) where it corrodes, breaks/shorts and as soon as you turn the wipers off they park where they are and don't sit back down at the bottom

i went to autoparts as we have them in the uk and it seems as though i will need to go to the stealership or take a chance with a scrap yard (breakers)
