2003 Ford Explorer-Rear Wiper Motor-How to Replace?

I removed fuses for the broken rear wiper motor and fixed our battery drain problem. I also made the quick fix of using WD-40 sprayed on the door hinges/sensors to fix my door open light problem. Now, how do you go about replacing the rear wiper motor yourself? And without destroying my truck.

The plastic panel pops off , if you had a trim removal tool it would be nice but it can be improvised , they are just tension clips , get some kind of lever behind the panel and give it a pop , once the plastic panel is off its pretty much self explanatory from there , a connector and couple small bolts , now the outside has nut under the w/w blade , a piece of the arm cover pops up to access the nut , remove w/w arm , then a grommet and under the grommet is a bigger nut that helps hold the motor onto the door/hatch , when reinstalling before you put the w/w arm back on run the wiper and make sure it shuts off and in the park position . should be a piece of cake .

What type of fuse is used for a 2007 Eddie Bauer Ford Explorer rear windshield wipers and where is it placed?


Your owners manual will give you fuse location and identification for the rear wiper. Most likely a wiper motor problem though. Turn on rear wiper and grab rear wiper arm and see if it will move at all. If it does move a bit or starts working....the motor is the problem

Why no wiper fluid to rear wiper 2002 ford explorer


the washer pump for the rear window is located in the washer bottle under the hood that the front washer work out of. the pump may have stopped working and needs replacing. have someone operate the rear washers and listen at the washer bottle to see if you hear the motor working. if not then you will have to check the plug connection for the rear washer pump for corrosion, broken wires and power and grounds. if these check out ok then replace the rear washer pump in the bottle.

Ihave a 2003 Ford Explorer & the windshield wipers won't stop working, with the switch turned off or even removed. The only way to stop them is to remove the battery cable.


Sounds like the park switch in the wiper motor is bad.Some manufacturers allwo you to change the circuit board seperately from the motor,sometimes they have to be changed as a unit

How do I fix or replace the rear wiper motor


Hello,

  1. Disconnect the cable running to the negative terminal on the car's battery. To do this, loosen the nut on the cable clamp until the clamp is loose enough for you to slide the cable clamp off the negative battery terminal.
  2. Pull the wiper arm away from the rear windshield until the wiper arm locks into a vertical or semi-vertical position or is perpendicular to the rear windshield.
  3. Remove the nut holding the wiper arm assembly to the rear wiper motor.
  4. Pull the wiper arm off the wiper motor assembly.
  5. Unplug the rear wiper motor plug/harness.
  6. Remove the screws holding the rear wiper motor to the inside of the vehicle at the base of the rear window.
  7. Pull the rear wiper motor off.
  8. Install the new wiper motor and put the wiper motor and arm assembly back on the vehicle by reversing the completed steps.

I have a1992 ford explorer the front and rear wipers quit workin


check for power at the wiper motor. If power at the wiper motor but no wiper action then replace the motor. if no power at the motor then use a jumper wire and put power to the motor. Does motor run? if so check for open circuit in the wire someplace.
