Yes, it is possible. But there are two kinds of caps, and in case of B3, it has both of them - early B3 has bayonet type cap, newer cars have screw type cap. Later one is very easy to take apart, as...

As for the relay, you can either open it up and look for broken joints, or go upgrade path and get mk3 golf wiper relay with number 99 on top.
