My Ghia's intermintent wipers no longer have the variable speed part working. Any ideas as to why this would be, or what needs to be fixed?

Thanks alot.

hi, mate had his nl fairlane do this , he removed the switch from the column and found the variable wiper wires are only just long enough to be soldered to the terminals.(looked like a factory fault) he found one wire had broken.pretty sure he just soldered it back together,and its all working again.
