Windshield wipers making noise and stopping

Ok. First I have searched and can't find an answer to my question. A couple of weeks ago I lost low speed on my wipers. I pullthecwiper delay module and that gave me low and high, however today I turned the wipers on and suddenly they started making this terrible noise like something was slipping and popping loose. Then the wipers quit mid windshield. I got out and twisted them by hand and they started working again, but still sounds like something is loose. Do I need to drop the windshield to see if something is loose? Any suggestions? Thanks!

Update- just went outside and tried them again and everything seems fine? WTF? Can the linkage come loose and then pop back on?

Could be the motor is going out. If it was me I'd drop the windshield and see what is going on instead of waiting for it to fail again in the rain.

This ^. It definitely sounds like the motor is on it's way out. I have replaced many a wiper motor on my many different vehicles through out the years, most of them started acting this way shortly before death.
