Noisy wipers

My wipers are making an incredible noise. Its a kind of screeching noise. I have replaced the blades to be sure, biut the sound is coming from where the motor is. The wipers work very well (for an alfa), so I dont think its the usual grease on the contacts problem, it sounds like the motor bearing has gone. The noise is driving me insane with our current weather.

Has anyone else had this before? How much is a new motor and where would be cheapest to get it? any other ideas?

Re: Noisy wipers

Probably lack of grease in the worm gear. Most of it gets out and on to the contacts which are in the same part.

I cleaned mine out on the 155 and replaced with something a bit thicker which stayed put.
