    Hello and I hope you may be able to help.

    Got a problem with the rear wash wipe on my car and having managed to get all the trim of of the tailgate (glass release fault is something else to find)I am now trying to trace the fault. Fuses are all OK in the rear but I have noticed there are 4 relays above them.

    Have had a look through the manual (and the Haynes one) but can not find any reference to what relay does what. If anyone is able to help it would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    With the WDS have managed to work them out

    Starting on the left as you look at them they are
    Heated rear window relay (green)
    Rear tailgate motor relay (black)
    Rear window motor relay (black)
    Unload relay (green)

    The unload relay I think is for the wiper motor itself.

    All I need to is take the 3rd and 4th relays out and check they work and I then believe I have isolated the issues to the rear wiper motor and micro switch on glass.
