The rear door panel is secured to the door using screws and clips. The screws will be in the handle used to close the door and there may be plastic plugs in the handle hiding the screws. Once these screws are removed, the handle will come off. Look for any more screws along the panel. If there are more, they will be visible. Once the screws are removed, pull on the panel to release the clips that secure it to the door. These clips will require some force to release them and will make a snap/pop sound once released. You may have to put a screwdriver/wedge between the panel and door to start the process of releasing the clips
It will surely be the rear wiper motor that failed. The hatch panels can be removed, lift the hatch. You'll find a torx screw where the pull handle is, remove. Pull down the lower portion of the panel, the upper is also held on by push clips, just pull it away. Lower hatch, remove wiper arm cap, and nut holding wiper arm on. take off the large nut off at the base of the wiper shaft. raise hatch, remove elctrical connector, and 3 10mm bolts holding wiper motor and bracket. Replaced and reverse procedure.
