Audi A4 Quattro Avant 2.5 TDI on a 52 plate. If I accelerate

This answer was rated:

Audi A4 Quattro Avant 2.5 TDI on a 52 plate. If I accelerate gently all is fine. If I give it a bit of extra throttle the Rear wiper activates by itself. If I operate wiper by the switch all is fine. Any suggestions.
Hello, welcome. My name is***** will do my very best to assist you with your question. I apologize if you have been waiting long for a response.

Are there any type of warning lights coming on at all?

Hi Mike,


No warning lights at all, nothing untoward except the wiper going

From what you are describing this issue is consistent with the wiper stalk switch itself this is what causes this problem. To correct this issue the stalk needs to be replaced.
