How to Replace the Rear Wiping Motor on Your WV Polo 6R
If you are looking for an easy way to replace the rear wiping motor on your WV polo 6r, then you have come to the right place. We’ve got a wide selection of new and used wiper motors for your vehicle, so it’s sure to be a breeze to find the perfect replacement.
Measure the resistance between the rear wiper/washer switch C288 pin 6
A rear window wiper motor is a powerful piece of machinery in the proper hands. It’s not all a matter of horsepower though. The front and rear wiper/washer controls make or break the performance of the aforementioned motor. Getting the right combination of power and torque is a process best left to a trained professional.
The C288 rear window wiper switch has some very nifty tricks up its sleeve. Pin 2 on the switch measures the relative resistance when depressed, and the corresponding volts when released. On the harness side, pin 6 is part of the same circuit. When pressed, the switch provides ground for the washer pump. In the event that the aforementioned device fails to do its job, you can get it back to work by simply unplugging the motor.
There is also an associated voltage divider circuit that serves as the front and rear windshield wipers’ power source. Fuse F44 (10A) supplies the voltage and a multifunction switch on the door or panel cover of the relevant compartment is the key to unlocking the magic. You can find the schematics in the manual for your particular make and model. Fortunately, most modern day vehicles come with a nifty little fuse panel. If you don’t want to tinker with the fusebox, you can always buy a new switch.
If the switch is bad will I need to replace the whole wiper selector?
Windshield wiper switches can wear out with frequent use. If your switch is not working properly, you can replace it. There are some warning signs that will indicate that the switch is not functioning.
A film of grime or streaks on the windshield are common signs that your wipers are not working properly. This is especially noticeable in bad weather. You can clear the streaks by wiping the blades with a paper towel.
A bent or loose arm may cause chattering or swinging that can damage the wiper motor. Your wiper motor might be malfunctioning or the linkage might be worn out. To check if this is the problem, take a look at the circuit diagram.
The control module operates the wiper motor through relays. Some wipers have two relays. The other pins control the timing of the wipers.
Depending on your vehicle, you can change the speed and duration of the wipers. If your wipers are slow or if they are not following the signal you put on the switch, you can consider replacing your switch.
Checking the wiring connector can also indicate if the switch is faulty. If you are not sure, it is recommended to take the switch to a mechanic for diagnosis.
When you have the switch out of the dash, make sure to remove the relay from the circuit before replacing it. Also, leave 5 wires from the switch to the wiper motor.
Place an order for a Wiper motor
If you are looking to repair or replace your WV Polo 6R electric wiring rear windshield wipers, it is a good idea to look into the different options available. Having working wipers is vital to your visibility. However, there are several different problems that can cause your windshield to not function.
One of the most common problems is a loose or seizing up of the wiper linkage. When the shaft of the wiper arm pops out of the ball joint, it may cause the motor to overheat. This can be easily fixed by simply cleaning and lubricating the shaft.
Another problem is a faulty park switch. A park switch is a small piece of circuitry that sits inside the wiper motor and allows the wipers to be positioned in a “park” position.
Typically, a park switch is sold as part of a complete wiper assembly. The linkage is usually inexpensive and can be replaced separately. Usually, a scan tool can be used to test the multifunction switch to make sure it is functioning properly.
You can also use a resistor to slow down the motor when it is switched off. You can buy one at your local electronics store. Basically, a 5-Watt 15-Ohm resistor should work.
Finally, you can check the voltage at the motor. Generally, the connector should be connected to the ignition and should have a voltage of 12V.
