    So we just bought an 2013 A1 1.4 TFSI auto.
    Wipers were working on the way home from the used car dealer. (Not Audi)
    Next Saturday, no wipers.
    Fuses checked and I bought a used wiper motor on advice from local workshop.
    They also replaced a relay.
    Still nothing.
    I'm not sure where to go next as the local workshop advised a new motor...I think they are around £200.
    Any other advice that you guys can offer?
    I'm about to take it to Audi dealer because I can't be bothered trying this and that... Gets annoying

    Yes I do.

    I thought I had a screen shot of it but I didn't take one.

    So I've decided to first replace the bonnet catch and it that doesn't work I'm going to buy a new wiper motor.
    I've bought a used motor but it didn't work even though the motor works when connected with direct power.

    Take it back to the dealer, this is a 5 year old car which presumably cost you a good few £thousand a few weeks ago rather than a few £hundred banger, and you have rights under the Consumer Rights Act.
    Why would you consider shelling out more £100's on top of the motor you've bought, by taking it to an Audi dealer ?

    We've contacted the used car dealer and they want us to bring it in so they can check it. I don't trust these guys but will have to see as I won't be spending any more money! Just annoying as I don't see any other solutions.
    Any other ideas?

    So just an update...my wiper issue was a program error on the control module according to the dealer.
    He actually called me 4 hours after I had dropped the car with him
