It works, and we can even say that the governer works... its way!
It's unable to keep wiping frequency. Sometimes it runs non-stop, others it stops for thirty seconds. I think that the governer only modifies the frequency craziness.
On the other hand I do not know what's the plastic hose used for. Any suggestion?

If the motor gets hot, a bi-metallic strip opens the circuit and stops current getting to the motor. Once the motor cools down, the circuit is closed and the motor will work again.
I would disconnect the motor from the wiper linkage and check to see how easy the wipers are to move across their full arcs. If that is OK, then the wiper motor may be in need of an overhaul: glazed commutators, tight bearings, etc.. [I once took an Austin wiper motor's cover off and found the bearings were running in rusty water.]

For example, pop off the circlip [don't lose the jolly thing!] connecting the wiper mechanism to the motor and run the motor. If it runs OK unloaded, then this suggests the fault is with the wiper mechanism.
If the horn and wiper are on the same circuit [cue wiring diagram look up] then maybe something like the relevant fuse is corroded or loose in its holder.

That's Funny Stefan, I thought methodical and German went hand in hand
