One day the rear wipe works another it won't ....

Roll on better weather for a proper investigation. I've noticed if the tailgate is shut hard the rear wiper will work.

Update :

I've removed the motor today and noticed the white plastic part the power cable plugs into has movement so I've wrapped it with black electrical tape powered the motor up and its working and has been since.
Also taped around the wiper spindle to tighten the spindle as it slides back in and that stops any possible water getting in.

I also noticed too the wires that connected to the rear demister was at one point earthing , that is also cured with The same black tape , all good now.
