    I have a 320D 2003. Not sure if its a similar unit. The rear wiper had completely seized. I had to dismantle the wiper and remove the whole assembly (tricky as it was truly seized in) Not complicated but once apart, I could see why they fail so easily, difficult to lube correctly by just spraying with WD from the outside, rust had degraded the shaft. Once re-assembled with plenty of grease, no further problems. Be careful on removal though, I had to use a spanner to "work" the mechanism back and forth and was wary that too much force might damage the glass.

    It is often easier just to replace the part as once they start siezing up they do again and again, it costs about 40

    It is only a 20 minute job so don't let them fleece you

    Just for an update....turns out the motor was fine, I had a local mechanic look at it and he said the wiper pivot arm had seized, he soaked it in ' freeze your nuts off' penetrating fluid and with a little manipulation managed to get it working again, 25 fix, great job.

    It will go again in six months, once they start rusting, that is it....
