Removing wiper motor
« on: August 11, 2010, 05:32:27 PM »
I'm trying to remove the wiper motor in the engine compartment but I"ve become stuck.  I removed the 3 bolts on the inside against the firewall but now I'm trying to remove the 1/2 bolt on the inside where the wiper arms attach.  I've tried turning it but since I took off the bolts against the firewall the unit keeps moving.  I reached thru the scoop and pushed the motor against the firewall so it wouldn't move but as I turn the bolt the wiper arms start to move.

Did I make a mistake in taking the 3 bolts off the firewall before taking the 1/2 bolt off first? :-X

Damn it, I was afraid someone would say that!! LOL  I guess I can just put the top 2 bolts in and that should hold it well enough for me to remove the 1/2" bolt..

Is there any way to test the motor to see if its still functional?  There is no engine in the car and the wipers haven't been used in about 8 years.  I'm assuming its prob a good idea to just change it instead of bothering with it once the motor is installed!
