Can rear wiper switch be moved to the wiper stalk?

Recommended Posts


I was just wondering if anyone had ever tried to connect the wiper stalk to the read wiper switch so that when you push it forward, it operates the wiper? I don't have headlight washers so I presume there is a redundant switch in there somewhere?

Would be interested to know if its possible and whether it would be an easy job - any diagrams would be really appreciated. It would be a lot easier to operate when at high speed rather than fumbling around for the switch on the dash

I am not the electrical guy, but 5 years ago I played around with the idea of using the wiper stalk to control something. One of the local EE Boxster guys did this to control some audio component.

From what little I remember there is an unused switch inside the wiper stalk unless the car has headlight wipers. That is push forward position you mentioned. I made some notations but it has been so long I don't remember. I even bought one of the pins that fit into the female electrical connector. It is the sliver pin in the 3rd picture.
