Red face One wiper stopped working?

My passenger wiper stopped working, I tightened the nut and it started to work again. I've done this a few times but now theres only slight movement and then nothing. Also it stops below the bonnet. The driver side wiper works fine. Could there be two motors?
Anyone have an idea what going on?
Rather have an idea before I take it to a garage!

One strong possibility would be that the sleeve needs to be replaced. That is what gives the friction between the two arms. There is only one motor, but separate arms underneath, so that too is a possibility.
