    Has anyone had this problem?
    After about 15 minutes running the rear screen wipers on my Vito 120CDI start on their own and run constantly. Removed fuse and returned home. After about 15 minutes standing fuse replaced and everything works fine - until the vehicle has run for about 15 minutes!
    Should I be looking at switch or relay?

    Its the motor, very common, it fills with water and shorts out.
    Replacement it the only option, just over £80 from Euro car parts
