Loud rear wiper

Has anyone else noticed that their rear wiper motor is noisy, or is it just me? I don’t mean the wiper blade, but the motor itself? The inside of the car is so quiet that when I switch the rear wiper on, it’s very apparent.

It’s not a grinding sound, just a normal whirring sound.

Yes, ours was so noisy we could hear it even with the radio on (2016 SXL). We had it replaced and it was much quieter, but still with radio on low, you can hear it a little.
