Andy. I had a bit of a nightmare with mine too. I bought 3 second hand ones from eBay. None of them worked. In the end I butchered each of them and made one which worked.
Each had its own faults but each of them also shared a common fault.
The shaft running from the motor drive to the actual wiper arm is encased in plastic. In each of my motors this had seized up. To fix it, I cut the plastic cover off at the base, cleaned and greased up the shaft and placed the shaft cover back on.
The cover acts as a spacer so needs to be in place, anyway it's worked ever since and might be a way forward as I'm pretty sure the part is no longer available new. 😜
Loving being back in alfa ownership!!
