Windshield Wipers

This past weekend while driving through heavy wet fog I turned on my wipers and once again noted how slowly they move. Low speed is slow and high speed is just a little less slow. The switching seems to work fine. My car is now driven only occasionally and usually in good weather so I haven't gotten around to trouble shooting the wipers. I wonder if the lubrication of the drive mechanism has dried with the years and bogged down. Has anyone experienced this and found a solution? I've read the linkage/motor section in the Haynes manual and it appears I may have to remove and dissasemble the system to lube the shafts. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I understand that the slow wiper problem is usually caused by binding of the blade actuating shafts (where the wiper arms are attached). Recommend you remove the arms, disassemble all the nuts and rubber bushings, etc., that you can get to, clean, lubricate and reassemble.
If this works, please let us all know.
