How to remove the rear window wiper on a 1997 wagon

First do not pry on it, you will crack the rear windshield and have a bigger problem. In addition to the little slider lock at the base of the shaft mostly likely the wiper arm is corroded onto the motor/transmission shaft. What I have done successfully is carefully hack saw off the top of the wiper arm over the shaft. The top of the shaft is then exposed, soak it over and over with a penetrant, put a gear puller onto it and pull it off. A new shaft is about $45.00 at which may be cheaper than a dealer. A dealer mechanic tells me what he does is drill a hole down through the top of the shaft, squirt a bunch of W40 down into the hole, then drive a metal screw into the hole which pops the arm off. In either event the old shaft is worthless. If your motor works count yourself among the lucky, note that most car parts stores will tell you that one wiper motor fits the rear of saturn SW from 94-99, that is not true. Take your old motor in with you to make sure they sell you the right one.

The windshield wipers are stuck vertically and now

This sounds like the wiper motor has failed. You can pick one up at the local parts store. If not mechnically savvy, I would recommend taking to shop for working in tight areas that these can be. But, otherwise, the motor is on the fire wall, unplug, remove screws(4), exchange with new, and reassemble as removed. I hope this helps.

I need to replace my wiper unit . how do you remove it ,just the motor and the shell, the circuit board is ok

You have to remove the wiper arms then the cowling. Remove the retaining nut that holds the arms to the back of the wiper motor. Disconnect the wire connector then remove the 3 bolts that hold the wiper motor to the fire wall. Reverse order to install new motor.

95 saturn sw2

It is pretty straight forward. You need to drop the front portion of the exhaust, and remove the brace and torque converter dust shield. There is not a gasket. Just rtv. Honda bond works very well, about a 6mm bead all the way around.

SW2 Rear Wiper Replacement

There is a clip on the base of the wiper arm that swings out. Then you just lift the wiper arm up and off. Very simple once you know what to do. ( no, I'm not that smart. A guy at NAPA showed me how to do it.) Hope this helps. B.
