Windscreen wiper issues

I've searched the web and forum and can fine as help.

My mrs also has a civic mk8 2007 and has got a weird issue, when she turns her wipers on, no matter what setting, they just go on super fast. Also they don't stop after a few cycles, they just keep going until they feel like they want to stop. When thy eventually stop, it's wherever they want, at the bottom, half way up, fully ip and anywhere in between.

Help!

Wiper motor, you can strip down to it and clean the gunk out and it'll be fine for a while, but it will return. Or buy a new one which is pretty expensive, looking about 250 fitted.

i recall my uncle finding a honda bulliting online somewhere and it said to strip the motor, open and grease some contacts using the small blob of grease within and rebuild it.

did that mod about 120,000 miles and the wipers are still working well at 195,000 miles
