As for the reason the wiper is not functionning, since it did'nt stop suddenly but progressively, I would suspect rust where the wiper motor axle goes thru the rear window. Never had to work on it yet but others here have and might chime in if you wait a bit.

I eventually had to take the motor out. Here's a hint...buy a cheap 10mm box wrench and heat it with a torch then bent it into an almost horse shoe shape...it'll make your life a lot easier when it comes time to get some of the motor mount bolts out.
Once the motor is out you can take it apart and clean it. 90% of the time the motor stops working because the output shaft is corroded. Put the sandpaper to it, grease the heck out of it and re-assemble.
