Yes, is the same fuse nr.41 (15A) !
For Audi A3 the fuse box is located on the left side of dashboard behind a plastic cover (for left hand steering wheel vehicle). On inner face of the plastic cover you will find the fuse diagram.
The fuse nr.41, (the second fuse from right to left direction, on the second row from bottom to upper direction, on the fuse box), F41 (15A) = Rear screen wash & wipe system !!!
Replace blowed fuse with new one and problem will be solved quickly !
Please rate my response. Thanks!

My Audi a3 wiper does not work, sometimes they do work for a couple of minutes. I have took to morethan 3 Auto electrical for diagnosis,checked the wiper moto. What would be the problem?

sounds like it getting hot and stops.

However if its the rear one it could be the wiring loom in the connection between boot door and frame .

My rear wiper on my 2005 audi a3 stopped working half way through its cycle just froze ,i changed fuse ,anything else i can check ? or does this mean a new motor is needed ?

You probably hit the nail on the head with the motor. When you engage it, go and feel if the base of the wiper is warming up (the center hub, not the tip). If it is, the motor is probably shot. See if you can clean away any debris and check for any loose connections.

I've got an Audi A3, 2004 model..The rear wiper jet is not working. The blade operates and the front wash wipe works, but there's not jet of water from the rear wiper blade, no matter how long you operate...

Hey there

This happened to myself. I have a an Audi A3 2.0 TDI sport (3 door). The problem is a build up of deposits in the nossel jet. This is due to the type of washer fluid you get.

The easiest way to sort it out is to remove the plastic cover surrounding the washer jet (easy to pull off by lifting the sides of it and comes off) and remove the washer jet by simply pulling it off. You can then give it a good clean and use a sewing needle to loosen the dirt. If to dirty and still doesn't work when you put it back on then they only cost £4 from audi.

When its sorted try to buy Audi washer fluid £3.85 for 500ml). This is because its manufactured finer than say if you get it from halfords and this will stop further build ups.

Hope this helps
