Unhappy Rear Wiper not working

Hi. Just registered today (5th December 2020), and I have an Antara 2.2 CDTi and the rear wiper has stopped working. When I bought the car the rear wiper wasn't working, but garage fixed it. 6 months later it stopped working so I took to another Garage and they said it needed a new motor, but couldn't get one. I got a replacement from a dismantler (tested etc.) and tried to fit today, but nothing, still not working. I have tried changing over the modules between the 2 motors and tried both cables and still nothing. I pretty much don't have a clue when it comes to car electrics but the fuse seems to be ok in the box under the bonnet (swapped it with the starter motor one and car still starts). Would there be any known faults associated with this?

Thanks in Advance.

Had tried the motor by just connecting, but did not bolt in place so nothing was working. Got fed up, so bolted the new motor in and put everything back together and it was working. Reckon it must have needed some sort of connection, or possibly to be earthed against the body to work. No need to reply to this thread as now working unless you know where I went wrong originally which would help for future reference.
