Can headlight wiper motors be fixed?

I have a 1990 420sel and it has those little headlight wipers. The wipers worked fine up until a few days ago. The passenger side wiper now stops in the middle of the light instead of stopping at its normal park position at the bottom of the light. Can these motors be repaired or do you just have to buy a new one?

Time to check the wiper linkages.
Next would be to disconnect the motor in place and see what 12v does for it.
