Subsequent to my last post, I also add the following:

Watch out getting the cable plug out. It's very easy to break off the cable plug locking mechanism. I managed to break mine and did not notice (it was pretty dark when I got the thing out). After about 2 or 3 days, my rear wiper stopped working. A quick bang on the back cover and it worked temporarily. I've since secured the plug with strong and tightly applied cable ties and it's working fine and seems to be reliable.

I just did this today, Great instructions! I also used a 9mm barrel brush to clean out the sleeve and it worked great!

So your assuming, good luck with that... the reason it wont turn is the gear on the end of the shaft is connected to the worm gear inside the housing thats part of the electrical motor, If the shaft is stuck it wont work, if there is no power to the arm it wont work when you try to move it.....

You basically just summed up everything i have read, im assuming the worst case scenario because my jeep has 476000 kms on it and i don't know how the previous owners treated it if the switch was left on for an eternity the motor could have been trying to move for a long time, for all i know the motor could be burnt out it could happen.
