This might be of use to someone in a similar position.

This morning as I used the windscreen washer, the passenger side wiper caught the drivers side and then stopped halfway up the window.
I was able to move the wiper back to rest and then began searching the internet/Youtube for videos showing how to access the motor and began researching buying new linkage.
However, when I removed the clip covering the bolt on the arm, the bolt had come undone. Tightening it up sorted the problem. A cheap repair!

Relatively common, it is a good idea to take the arm off and clean the splines of the tapered shaft as they will be clogged with aluminium from the arm.
