Cheers guys for your help, The car is now not far from MOT. Just a few other (non mot) things to sort...

At the fusebox, there's a black and green wire, with a spade connector floating about not going anywhere. I have a feeling it's for the rear wipe/wash? This was crudely sliced at the boot end, ive joined it back up then noticed the relay is missing, (No 72) so ordered one. Where does this spade live?

Secondly, How is the rear demist powered, should there be a relay for that too? Haynes, and circuit diags etc suggest no.

Is the wire from B18, the up shift light for the fuel economy gauge?

Hmmm could well be which would explain why it's not connected
Could also be "e2 - grn/blk- rear wiper motor pin 53"

I know it’s no easy looking behind the fuse box and not always a great idea moving/pulling all those old wires around but you may need to have a look and see what’s connected, at least you may have an idea where to look...

At least with the Scirocco the rear wiper is not really needed, it’s not like an estate car when the rear screen gets very dirty with all the spray from the road being thrown up the back of the car... :-D

WELL, After many weeks, she now has a clean ticket! Now bodywork to do... also cleaned up the seats, and managed to get the previously painted black doorcards BACK to their original grey.
