    Could be water ingress into the wiper motor/control unit or a broken wire from the tail gate to the body of the car.

    They are if people jet wash around the rear window and tail gate area, the water gets blasted in.

    And repeated opening and closing of the window/tailgate has been known to break or short the wires out.

    See here for some common items. http://www.honestjohn.co.uk/carbycar...ries-e46-1998/

    Also the moving spindles can sieze up. I have repaired a few of these now. You can remove them and strip them to clean them out and lubricate them. If its to far gone the spindle is not too dear from the dealers....
