I have recently purchased a 2003 c3. The rear wiper doesn't work and I was wondering what people would suggest as to tracking the problem down ( starting easiest to most difficult).
Thanks in advance.

Check the fuse in the BSI module, take a look here https://citroenc3owners.com/citroen-c3-t ... -t129.html to identify the fuse.

If the fuse is ok, I would check for 12v and an earth at the motor to see if there is power getting to the wiper motor
