Welcome to Just Answer!!!
What year is your phaeton ??
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Yes, but the info in the manual only indicates what appears to be the wash motor.
So if you could tell me which fuse and where - I can check without messing with the other fuses.
I left the wipers in intermittent mode overnight and frost/snow meant when I swithched it on, the wipers tried then stopped. I hope the motor is not blown, but first need to check the fuse.

Expert:  vwtech0405 replied 6 years ago.
Ok just looked up the info but the issue is that our repair manual does not the UK model phaeton but more then likely it is in the same location as ours here in the U.S. market . The wiper fuse is located in the fuse box under the hood by the wiper cowl. I recommend you check the fuses with a test light to see which one in bad but its located in this fuse box i hope this helps.

Are you saying that as well as the fuse box in the drivers footwell and another in the trunk, there is a third fuse box?
Expert:  vwtech0405 replied 6 years ago.

Does this help??

I have looked but there is nothing obvious looking like a fuse box.
I have taken off the plastic cover to reveal the motor but no fuse box. As I look at the engine from the front of the car the lotor is on the left.
Expert:  vwtech0405 replied 6 years ago.
Are you looking under the wiper cowl its not where the engine is at its closer to the firewall under the wipers where the black plastic panels are at.

I've just had a look and cannoty see anything resembling a fuse box.
It looks like I will have to visit the VW dealer. If you could forward a diagram/picture this would be appreciated. If not please let me know. please respond and I will then accept the answer so you will get paid.
Thanks
