Did the rear wiper on your Volkswagen stop working? Or is it acting erratically? Either way, you came to the right place. You want to fix or replace your windshield wiper as soon as possible.
Why It's Important To Replace Your Rear Wiper ASAP
The rear wiper exists for a reason. It's to maintain visibility behind your vehicle during inclement weather. You definitely need to see what's behind your vehicle at all times. A rear wiper will keep the rear window clear. Driving with a broken rear wiper is dangerous not only for you, but for others on the road too.
The good news is that it's very easy to repair or replace your rear wiper.
Repairing Or Replacing Your Rear Wiper Is Easy
The first thing you need to do is figure out what's wrong with your rear wiper. When they fail, some rear wipers stop working. In other cases, the rear wipers won't stop moving even after you've turned them off. If you're experiencing either issue, you may need a rear wiper motor replacement.
Most commonly, the issue is only the blade. In that case, you would only need a rear wiper blade replacement. Sometimes the issue may be the rear wiper arm. You can replace that, too.
