Hi ya

Is you mini a first generation or second generation.
I take it the don't work on any speed or even if you pull the stalk back to wash the screen.
It sounds like it might be a relay but if you know what generation it is we might be able to help abit more

Ok sound a like it might be the motor or a relay.

But relay is an easy
If you open the bonnet on the right hand side as you look at it between your battery and the strut tower there is a black fuse box.
Open it up and at the back of it on the right hand side there are two black relays.
There the wiper ones you can try changing them around and try it

I will just find a picture so you know what ones I am talking about.

Check that the fuse box is dry as well there is also a fuse there to right hand side row of fuses no 9. No1 being the closest to the front of the car make shore it's ok and pushed in
Just going to get a picture of the fuse box
