Any guidance please,

2008 C5 X7, 2.0 HDI Estate. Wipers have been mis behaving for a while. Firstly stuck on intermediate on whichever setting then they folded over each other and left stopped working with right jerking up about 4" then back down again. I've read that it's probably the ECU in the slave, left side. I have removed the motors and panel to get to the ecu and put the multi meter across each terminal pin and the connection to the PCB and there seemed to be lack on continuity. Tried to remove the PCB but to no avail, rechecked continuity and it seemed okay after messing about but when i refitted the motors they still don't work.

Are new motors required as the few there are about seem expensive and i may need two. Or is it worth trying to get them looked at by an auto electrician.

Does anybody have any experience with this.....PLease

Andy

Failure of the wiper motors is a common fault on the C5 X7. Have a look at this from the Comon Problems topic

43. New C5 (X7) front wipers not working properly.

Before replacing one of the 2 wiper motors, it may be possible to do a fix to the motor wiring pins - see this topic from c5vtr http://www.citroen-o...x7-wiper-motor/

OK so scrap that I have opened the cover up by removing the adhesive from two the screw heads. And then managed to break the third fixing lug.

 

Now my question is. I see the circuit board but cannot prize it away from the cover having removed the three smaller fixing screws. The board itself appears to be undamaged but I cant see behind it to where the ribbon cable will attach to the board. Any other ideas as to what I can do now to get the board away - Im ultra careful now having snapped off one lug.

 

Secondly is there a test I can do to confirm that it is indeed the passenger motor that has died?
