Out of the blue my front windscreen wiper motor appears to have failed. Are these easy to change? Anyone know if it’s worth opening it up to try and mend? I’m ***uming not. Thanks very much.

if it still turns, it's worth checking if the knuckles have popped out, though you might need new sockets
you may also find that the wiper arms are rusted to the studs. an universal puller would help if you can't rubber mallet it off. either way, you'll see that it's not much more involved than a plug, and 3 bolts or studs to get the entire ***embly out

Does the motor make any noise? or is it just silent?
If its making noise then the linkages are probably worn and popped off, if its silent its worth checking the fuse first and then if the spindles are actually free and not seized in the mounts.
There are rebuild kits available for most wiper types.
