A few days ago my rear wiper and washer stopped working. I suspected it was the fuse so I replaced it (#9, 10amp). It flipped back a forth a few times (no fluid came out) and then it stopped. I replaced the fuse again...and same thing happened. It's pointless to replace it a third time.

Anyone have an idea what it might be that would suddenly cause the fuse to pop?

More information requested.

*Does the fuse pop when you try to make fluid come out or simply when the wiper motor is running?
*Grab the hub right at the glass. Do you feel any play at all? (rare)
*Also rare - There's a wire at the top of the door in a flexible plastic tube. Do you see any damage there?

Chances are that none of that will help but these are the easy things to look at. You could have a bad switch, a short in a wire, a bad wiper motor, or other little goodies that just don't lend themselves to quick answers sight unseen.
