found a good garage who diagnosed the problem was due to a failed relay; relay and stalk have since been replaced. The windscreen motor is a separate issue and also needs replacing soon. So I'm happy my elderly Merc is back on the road again.

There is one motor driving both wiper arms. If one side has stopped and the other side still works, it is likely that the point there the are connects to the drive is stripped or slipped off. Check at the point where the driver side wiper arm is attached to the drive / pivot point
It is possible that you tightened the bolts for the arms themselves to much and it is to much resistance for the motor. Try loosening the bolts a bit and see if that helps. Aside from that make sure that you are getting a full 12V to the plug by testing it with a multimeter for DC Voltage.
Hope this helps you.
Hello I have a saab 9.3 SS 04 and had the same problem.
- intermittent wipe doesn't work, at all - windscreen washers don't work, at all - "normal" continuous, and fast wipe work, but the wipers freeze in the middle of the windscreen if you let go of the control stalk, rather than sweeping back to the resting position - same "freeze" happens with the manual wipe (push down on the control stalk)
The weird thing is that, this morning, for about 10 minutes, it seemed to fix itself, partially - the washers started working etc - but the intermittent wipe still didn't work. However not long after that it went back to the symptoms described above. also if I unplugged my car battery for a minute the washers worked for several seconds but again same problem occurs.
Solution is to replace your wiper motor. its that "simple" worked for me. The wiper motor has a lot of electronic stuff and seems to control the washer engine. Good luck.
