Damned wipers

For some reason my drivers side windscreen wiper is stopping some 4 or 5 inches short of where it should go to.

Any recommendations?

The train :(

When in intermittent mode, is the wipe too, er, intermittent i.e. the wiper stops halfway across the screen? If it does, then my guess would be that the wiper motor contacts will need a clean (someone will explain it better).

My intermittent is **ggered, no point in me using it until I get it fixed.

i did alot of work on my wipers after my moter packed up.
It could be that it has become offset.
also, inside the moter there is a location bit that tells the logic where the wipers are - that could have slipped.
If you think its the moter, then give me a shout, ive got a spare one from a supplier, its for a P1, but it might fit the others - Free to a good home if it helps.
