As topic, not for the coupe but wifey's V40, I replaced the central electronic module to fix one faulty headlight but now the rear wiper doesn't work (but rear washer OK) it's all controlled by same CEM and just waiting for another to come up cheaply...

I'll second that - the rear wiper is not testable... Just make sure it's not hanging off or something silly.

We had that too, turns out they sent us the S40 CEM box which has no rear wiper

OK, should be fine then.

I also got an S40 box, but strange how the rear wash works when the S40 doesn't have one? Both boxes have the same part number. I'll probably bodge the old box to use the one good output for the headlight to operate both sides via a relay, or I could try prising open the box and replacing internal relay components, shame they are so unreliable/expensive!
