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 a 2006 Saturn Relay 2. My rear wiper motor went and I'm in the process of replacing it. For some reason, I cant get the wiper arm off. Is there a trick to getting the arm off the splined shaft? ...


There is a little lock on the wiper arm. Lift the arm up and slide the lock lever over and this will hold the arm up for you, then just wiggle the arm off the spline.

Replace rear wiper motor


In taking the rear wiper arm off, it seems to corrode onto the motor drive hub or axle. Shooting some lubricant as best you can into the area and work the arm with the clip up as best you can, it will eventually work itself off. Lift the tailgate and start at the top plastic pieces, they just pull off, followed by the sides. When you get to the main plastic pane, remove the screws in the handle lift and bottom screws. I f you have courtesy lights, pop them out and disconnect. If you have a rear brake light, remove that cover as well. Once all screws are removed, that panel will just pull off as well. With that removed, the wiper motor is visible, and three screws and the wiring are all that needs to be removed.
The rear wiper can also be removed by drilling a 3/16 hole in the center where it attaches and use a faucet handle puller, it will pull it right off. you can fill the hole with epoxy putty or spot putty after reinstalling it.

try this but be careful..

Replace the rear wiper arm shaft


There is a plastic cover that pops off at the pivot end of the wiper arm. pulling up on this with a hook of some kind from the furthest end should release it. Under it you will find a nut that holds the wiper arm to the shaft. It's quite common for the nut to come loose and the shaft spins without moving the arm. Try tightening this nut (with the ignition on, be sure the wiper motor is off, then turn off ignition and put the wiper arm in the parked position). This is a common problem if you've ever tried to turn on the wiper when it was frozen to the glass.

The wiper motor on my 1983 Ford Ranger still works but the wipers no longer move. I think there is a failure of the mechanical linkage. Where do I go to find repair parts?


why do you think the motor still works if the wipers don't move? Can you hear the motor run or can you see a little movement when you turn the switch on?

What happens when you activate the washers?

go to a salvage yard that allows you to remove the parts yourself. Then you can see how the motor and linkage assembly comes out.


don't have 1983 info, but here is 1994:

Rear windscreen wiper V70 1998


Pull, and the plastic clips will disengage.  Some will break, there is nothing you can do about that.  Best to make a run to the dealer and pick up a handful of extra clips for the ones that do break.  There are tools that help prevent the clips breaking but they'll still break and it's not worth it.

Rear wiper motor


There is a small clip on the wiper itself that you need to pry up. Then VERY carrefully, you need to pry the wiper off. Try to do this fron the bottom side or you could smash your window. I used a ball joint removal tool and very gently hammered it so it pried the wiper off. Then you have to take the inside panel off and take the wiper motor out.
