If anybody is still interested in the problem with the windshield wiper motor going bad. It was a relatively easy and quick fix.

- wiper motor was not working anymore
- message in the display to go to the workshop
- Just got the motor out (that was the tricky part). I could give details, if someone needs them. Just pm me.
- unscrewed the bolts on the Motor. Pulled the cover.
- I saw that one of the three contacts got stuck.
- bent the contact housing a little bit with a screwdriver, so that everything moved freely again. Cleaned everything with compressed air
- the contact and motor was working fine again. ??

Compared to the McLaren Workshop, it took me half a day and not 3-4 weeks. Was definitely worth the try.

Greetings

`Could you PM the steps you took to remove the wiper motor ?
