I need a part for my 1995 Nissan Micra that's no longer made - where can I find one?

The intermittent function of the windscreen wipers on my 1995 Nissan Micra does not work, but the normal and fast functions do work. I'm given to understand that I need a Wiper Control Box, but Nissan no longer make the part. So far, I have not been successful in obtaining a secondhand part on eBay or from a breakers. I should be grateful if you could suggest any other source I could try, please.

As long as the wipers can clear the windscreen, the car will still pass its MoT. Are you 100 per cent sure you need a new wiper control box? If you really can't live without this function then be prepared to spend time and money replacing it. If you can't find a part via a scrap yard or eBay, get in contact with one of the Nissan Micra clubs and see if they can help. They might even be able to suggest a workaround.
