Question about Ford Crown Victoria
Wiper motor contacts are dirty or burnt. There is a cam inside the motor. It is under the casing and if yours has a plastic cover, it would be under that cover.
When you turn your wipers off, it activates a set of points on a cam and this acts like a derailer for the normal back and forth wiper action. The cam sets the wipers to complete a cycle and go to the Park position at the bottom of the windshield.
When the points get corroded you can sometimes file off the corrosion and spray WD40 on the points and they will work like new. Otherwise you will need to replace the wiper motor.

I change mine with the bonnet open - this just allows enough room to lift the blades enough to push the clips loose to release the blade carriers.
hope this helps - good luck.

Sounds like the gear inside is becoming worn from use. Or maybe something has popped the plastic portion up and its hitting that way try to push down and snap it back on. If its the first then only fix is to replace the unit.
