Hi, I recently bought a 2nd hand 407 SW and found my rear wiper didn't work. You can first check the fuse which I think is either number 1 or 2 in the rear fuse holder on the left hand side; (looking from the rear); behind the panel. The manual should confirm whether it is 1 or 2. You can always swap it with the rear accessory socket fuse which is either 3 or 4. The fuse is 15 amp.

But more likely, which is what mine was; is that the assembly has come apart and may need reassembling. I got mine fixed by a Peugeot dealer, which although out of warranty didn't cost me too much.

The problem is that the SW has the split openening door and screen, so the motor and casing and gearing take a lot of shocks when the rear window is continually shut.

Also if you try to use the rear windscreen wiper when it is very cold and the blade is still stuck to the glass, it causes the motor to stil try and turn.

If you log onto the 'Service Box' site, you can download the exploded diagram for the assembly if you are happy to have a go yourself.

The document number is D2F 6 64E 01A

You can sign up to the site for free and download these parts diagrams, and you can also pay a subscription to download wiring diagrams and repair sheets.

If you sign up for a 1 hour subscription which costs around 3.70, it's amazing what you can download in an hour  Surprised and save to your PC,, but don't forget to download the viewers that the site uses.

Hope that helps.

Peter

Thanks for the help. I have now found what the problems is. The wipe spindle shaft had seized solid (why don't Peugeot use grease these days?) It was a case of getting a wrench on the  inside the car and moving it side to side for a while. I the found the wiper are had a crack in it allowing it to move of it's own accord. The dealer amazingly had a replacement 15. After figuring a way how to get the arm cover/release off I was faced with a rusty nut. It took over and hour to remove this nut, it was so badly corroded (where's the zinc coated nut Idea , Peugeot?) the arm then came off leaving its spindle fitting well and truely welded to the spindle  Evil or Very Mad (two dissimilar metal don't work without anti-seize spray between them Idea , learn Peugeot), after much frustration I gave up and took it to the dealer, who then took half an hour to do the same and charge 35 Evil or Very Mad ! I would say the moral of the story is Laughing , everyone with 407SW's use you rear wiper on a regular basis otherwise you will be faced with the same fate as me.
