    OK - so nothing is straight forward on these darn things!
    Attached for info / interest is a picture of the leaky wiper motor, not a pretty sight, but at least that is now sorted.
    Tailgate latch problem is still not resolved though - the dealer can't find the cause, after having the vehicle for 3 days.
    They tell me they have changed "the 2 motors" and made no difference. When I queried about the control unit they tell me it is part of the motor, and they come in pairs. Sounds odd to me.
    I now have the car back and am supposed to arrange to have it booked in again for further investigation. This has been around 7 or 8 months already so I think that I'll hold off until the next service & MOT later this year just to reduce the hassle of having a loaner.
    In the meantime I shall start another thread just on this problem and see if anyone can advise.

    Does the dash show the tailgate is open when it should?
    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
