    I'll have one here ... I have no idea how long they take to get out as I've never needed to remove one?. If i need to pull the dash ... I'll never get to it. If I can get it out easily, it's yours. (your welcome to come up and remove it yourself it dash removal is required).

    It's almost certainly an underbonnet exercise Shane, but I think there are some variations in the motor assembly over the years of production. I'd think the motor could also be dismantled and possibly revived.

    They are easy to remove from under the bonnet,one plug for the wires the central nut under the wiper arm and I think 2 bolts holding the cradle for the motor to the fire wall. Possibly a 10 -15 minute job.

    Stephen, why not remove yours and dismantle the motor? It may respond to cleaning if it's not burnt out or corroded.

    Great minds think alike.I had a few spare hours today so I removed yje wiper motor and found a design fault it seems that when they assembled the CX model the drain in the wiper motor has ended up on top of the motor not on the bottom where it should be Hence when I removed it it was full of rusty water.I proceeded to clean up the commutator and the Brush block with WD 40 and reassembled the motor,wonders all over it worked even Quieter than before.
    Problem solved thanks to all for your offers of help.
    regards
    Stephen.
