Such a shame but I guess Audi don't care and they certainly don't deserve the extra prices they command for "quality build and components". As Jason stated above most of the time the shafts are so corroded replacement is probably better than repair as it will come back to haunt you! It's access to information like this that helps so many people. Next step is then to remove the ECU cover, requires a torx driver. this content

Audi A4 Wipers Stopped Working
So, I noticed last weekend that my windshield wipers were traveling very slowly while it was raining. richpin06a 286,745 views 9:05 Audi A4 2004 - Duration: 3:54. You can see how badly rusted part of the linkage was, the spindle wouldn't even turn in the bushing.

If they are still seized up, turn the car on and have a pal hit the switch. I put an insane amount of grease all over the mechanism and for about a month my wipers worked like they were on ecstasy! Anybody any ideas what this may be, and where would the offending faulty module be located?

Firstly, upon removal of the plastic covering (at the bottom of the windscreen) I managed to chip the windscreen, this then grew to a crack over the day!

When turning on the ignition, the wipers "twitch", even when the stalk is set to off.

Also check the plugs going to the ecu when you reassemble as they can come loose and you'll have to take the whole lot apart again to get at them - When it starts to slow, its a sign that the linkage has rusted so bad that it causes the wipers to slow and eventually seize. And exterior ones. check my blog I work on a lot of these with similar problems.First step is to remove the entire wiper transmission (or linkage assembly).
A little pick or something to remove the end caps on the wiper arms. I've just done my partner's 2002 B6 Cabriolet this morning and as you said, it took about three hours from start to finish. Good luck! And a better exhaust system.
You can see where the 2 linkages attach to the motor, pry the 2 arms off the ball end. They do it again when turning off the ignition too. On the plus side my wipers now go like Lance Armstrong on the way home from the chemist... You'll snap the studs or crack the windshield.

The passenger side bottle top has to be cut down a little as the shaft is shorter, but for a free modification I think these will do the trick and hopefully I have never had such trouble getting wiper arms off a car? Any idea on potential cost to fix this guys? ECU housing is held on with 2 nuts - one outside by the wing and one inside by the plug "hole".

Can't imagine either one of those causing the problem you describe, especially as you said this happened over a period of time.It's in the pivots, more so in the driver's side. thanks #1 shufti, Nov 19, 2007 Advert Guest Advertisement fjtwelve Moderator Staff Member Moderator Joined: Jan 6, 2006 Messages: 770 Likes Received: 10 Just had same problem, linkage partially There are 3 metal clips that hold the plastic piece at the bottom of the windshield (only one left on my car!), remove them and remove the plastic piece.
