Europe R57 Mini Wiper/boot/light problems

Hello all,

I'm new to this forum and I would like your help. Few months ago we bought an R57 Mini Cooper 1.6 petrol (LHD).

This Mini has three problems - boot lid button (very common), i think i'll try to solder a new button to the chip.
The other problem is the rear wiper - it stops at random positions (spraying works fine!!!), sometimes works normally. Is the rear wiper motor repairable? Maybe the ground wire has corroded?

And the last one, which I hadn't found in any forum is a light bulb error. When you first start the car, ECU display shows a light bulb error (all lights are working, none have been burnd out). When you press the indicator down (left turn signal) it blinks three times (indicator lights) then the error goes away. We tried diagnostics at Mini dealer, they didn't find a problem... Maybe someone has any ideas about this??

Sorry for any mistakes and I'm waiting for your answers,
