I just replaced my GLi BEM to a Futura one.
I also replaced the Combination switch and it now has variable intermittant wipers on it.

There are 2 wires for it, 1 goes to A10 and where does the other one go to? (there is an orange and a brown wire).

Help will be greatly appreciated.

OK. According to the wiring diagram the orange wire go's to earth/black or c7 at the bcm.
The brown with white trace go's to the bcm b6.

If you've replaced the bem yes,

turn the ignition on full for 30/45mins. wait for the smartlock jewel to be steady or untill the locks cycle.

Important to crank right away, DO NOT turn off then crank.

after this it should all be good.

Close the drivers door, wait for the courtesy lights to fade - I think you'll find you'll have no intermittent wipe.

Look for a black wire on the column from the wiper switch, splice the orange wire into it.
