    The rear wiper on my 2009 Reg A4 Avant has suddenly developed a mind of its own. Driving along in perfectly fine weather and it will suddenly start up for no reason and not stop! When it does occasionally stop it's not in the correct park position. Temporary fix in place - fuse removed. This is obviously only a short term fix while we have this fine weather, but has anybody any suggestions as to a permanent fix please?
    As an aside and possibly related, for some time now the manual tailgate release handle does not open the tailgate when it is closed. I can open it fine with the drivers door switch & the key fob, just not with the handle. When the tailgate is open though & I stop it part way through closing then the handle DOES reopen it. All very weird!!
    Any & all suggestions gratefully received please.

    Seems to be a common issue. Here are a couple of threads that might help:

    Many thanks, I'm afraid that makes dreadful sense! I'll have a look & see if I can spot a leak, combined with the Tailgate latch not working I was suspecting ECU problem, but maybe that's got wet too?
