First of all, check all of your fuses before you tackle a bigger job and waste your time. It could just be a blown fuse. I just had my wiper motor replaced... nothing would work at all. You could have a bad motor. Pre 1977 wiper motors are hard to find, but I retro-fitted a 77 to a 75 240d where it works, but I have to time the off switch just right in order for it to park. I replaced it myself... the bolts are way under the dash but not impossible. I took it to an electrician shop to get it working... old one was under water too, with the rest of the car. Just make sure if you get a newer model wiper motor, that you measure the connection to the linkage, and compare measurements with your old one. You may need to retro fit a extension thread with a bolt sleeve like I did so it spins freely, and drill new holes in the intermediary plate that connects the motor to the firewall. I just jb welded the thread and bolt sleeve all together and it works fine for me.
