Changed motor still the same

wheel boxes are not seized but turn freely

lubed drive cable

any suggestions?

could it be the switch gear or is there a relay to do with the windscreen wipers?

they seem to work fine if the glass is wet

almost like too much drag when the glass is dry or drying

Relay in standard setup only affects int wipe, doesn't do anything on cont wipe. Since you have done all the obvious tap in a multimeter connection to the red/green wire at the motor end with it still connected to the wiper motor. Check you actually have 12v there with motor under load. You may have a high resistance feed (in the switch possibly) that measures 12v with no load but then drops to zero under load.

Just had a similar problem on a heated rear window on a Citroen. 12v at the connector with it undone but nothing when it was connected. Ended up running a new wire from the dash to the tailgate to fix that one.
