Before blaming the motor I would check that the linkage mechanism is well lubricated. Have a look under the bonnet - hood near the bulkhead where the wiper shafts come through - you should see the linkage rods there. It may need release spray to start with but grease is what keeps it going. Mind your fingers - that is one powerful electric motor - so don't poke around when the wipers are switched on.
Hope this helps a bit. D

remove wipers. remove plastic covering by loosening plastic screws first. unplug wiper motor wires. there are about three 10mm nuts at the motor location and you also have to unscrew the big nuts that were below the wipers when you unscrewed them. replacement is reversal.

wiper gears may be broken, got to junk yard and buy motor and gear assembly for windshield wipers, should only take an hour to change out.

Turn your wipers off, using the stalk on the left side of your steering column. Turn your ignition off and remove the key.
Pull the wiper blade up to lift it to the service position. Pull the front part of the blade down to position it at an angle.
Pull back the lock pin on the center part of the wiper blade (where it connects to the wiper arm). This unlocks the blade from the wiper arm.
Grasp the blade on each side and pull it down (away from the extended wiper arm) to release it from the "U" clip.
Repeat the process for the other wiper blade, if desired. Removing the driver's side and passenger's side wiper blade is the same.
Install the new wiper blade. Open the lock pin on the new blade, and then insert it into the wiper arm "U" clip. Close the lock pin and lower the wiper blade to its normal position.
