Not sure about this exact car but 99% of all wiper motors are retained with a nut ythart lives under the base of the wiper arm and with three or 4 nuts from the rear of the motor. Take the wiper arm off, possibly requiring the use of a 10 mm wrench, and you will see a large nut, remove this. See if the wioper mote is accessed from the trunk, most likly under a clip in panal, split the electrical connector and remove the nuts holding the motor on. You will see that the collar that had the nut accessed from above will be stiff to move on the wiper shaft. Work it off, scotch brite the shaft, run a small wire brush down the typically plastic tube, lube the shaft with chassis grease or white grease, check that it moves freely in the collar and reassemble
