Hello and Welcome! I'm Billy and i will assist you with your inquiry. Feel free to ask if any further info is needed.
Are the wipers working slowly? very slowly?
do they move to the max position and back to the original? or do they stop in the middle?
if you lift the wiper arms, and turn the wipers on, do they move as needed?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
They get stuck in moving across screen then return to park position, but I have noticed they run very slow in last few days

In this case, i would first check the articulations, and check the wiper motor connectors, as you need to have clean and tight contacts on the wiper motor, and the articulations need to be moving effortlessly.
If not, having checked these and the problem persists, check if getting 12 volts on the motor connector, and if yes, the motor would need replacing.
I will include the details for dismantling and checking accordingly as a pdf:
