The wipers 'retract' and 'extend' running on 2 guide rods. Those rods are located under the plastic cover on the wiper pivot. They require lubrication periodically. The cover can be removed easily to access the guides. Park the wiper in the middle of the windshield or simply move it by hand. Under each side is a slot (Use a small dental mirror to find them). Use something like a right-angle slot screwdriver to pop the cover using these slots. Lube the guides and put the cover back on. I would suggest a good synthetic grease designed for a wide range of temperatures. Do the procedure once a year as par of your normal maintenance, otherwise increased current draw could fry the motor.
