Make sure that the wiper spindles and pivots aren't partially seized.This would make the motor gradually grind to a halt,we had exactly the same thing on a VW Golf a couple of weeks ago.

If all seems well there,then I suspect that the motor will be on it's way out.

Just one thing,is it a Megane 1 or 2(big ar$ed version).Megane 1's suffer from poor earth connections in one of the footwells and this can affect the wipers.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
