E200. Year 2000. My wiper works on and off but lets me down

e200. Year 2000. My wiper works on and off but lets me down often. Sometimes if I give a jolt from the outside it starts up again but cannot be relied on. What is the cure. ?

Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** nudging the wiper arm gets the wipers going I would say this is caused by a faulty wiper motor. It sounds like the brushes in the motor are worn and not making good contact.
