I'm sorry, I don't know if the front one is same, but the rear one on Avant
80 and Avant 100 (A6) is same. Different is just holder.

You might have to clean everything before lubricating it. Often old
grease will form this tar-like substance. Same could happen with the
bearings in the motor, though. I've usually had good luck rebuilding
motors (never tried with a wiper motor, though), but it's a pretty
laborious process. Unless you're really strapped for cash, it
probably makes more sense to buy a new motor.

You can try searching the auto parts sites to find a part number for
the motor in a 94 90 and compare it with that from a 90 A6. If they
match, it's probably the same part.
