    My 306's wipers no longer return to the home position, and
    a quick test with a multimeter seems to indicate that
    it is probably the contacts in the motor.

    I have fixed other wiper motors in the past by taking
    them apart and cleaning the contacts, however this
    one looks like it might be sealed.

    So before I go to the effort of getting it out of the car.
    Is it worth trying to take it apart, or should I just
    save myself the bother and get a new one?

    I would get a new one. The seal is probably away on the motor and water will have ingressed to
    the contacts. The contacts will most likely be ready to fall to bits. New motor is around £90
    from Eurocarparts.

    i have the same problem on my girlfriends 98 306 .at first we ignorded it
    and eventually pack up completely. i took the motor out and it was full of
    water after drying out and cleaning i eventually got it to work again but
    still does not return to its home position.if you dont want to get a new
    one (£90) then go to breakers yard as a lot of them give a returns ticket
    if it doesnt work would cost about a tenner.
    hope this saves you some time
