1998 scenic wiper faults

hi all,

newbee here

i've been having issues with my scenic front wipers

its been going on for a while now,but is now at the point where the car is unsafe to drive

its the 'usual' problem of the wipers sticking in the middle of the screen and now its progressed to the wipers doing what they like on intermittent and doing another 5-10 sweeps when turned off.

my dad is a mechanic and he recommended a direct earth from motor to the bulkhead, which i did with no joy.

it seems that i have heard many stories, ranging from wiper motor fault, poor earth, faulty stalk right up to the control unit

can anyone here give me any idea? and i'm guessing that if its a common motor fault, used motors are a no go, so does anyone have any idea on where they can be found reasonably priced?

Currently in farfromscenic's garage:
