I took a Volvo wiper motor apart one time and found the only problem was
that the gear grease had gotten on the electrical contacts. There is a
simple cover over the contacts. After removing this cover and a couple
minutes cleaning up the electrical contacts, the motor was fixed for
another hundred thousand miles.
