Default Windscreen Wiper Oiling etc

I'm trying to oil a uni-blade wiper on a W201 190 (1988). I tried to remove the whole thing including motor but I have a vacuum valve on the water pipe going throught the fire wall which is getting in the way and stopping me getting the whole unit out. There is also a cover on the wiper motor which is hitting a metal tag(part of the chassis).

So ... I have slapped some grease around on the moving parts underneath wiper (joining wiper to motor) but I have not been able to get into the 'gear box' part that controles the wiper going in and out. The 3rd speed is slower than the 2nd and I think this will be because the 'gear box' needs oiling.

Any ideas? - Can the parts that need oiling be removed without the motor? I don't really want to open the water pipes to remove the valve if I can help it.

Thanks...
