According to AllData, you don't have to remove the motor to install a new switch. Subsequently, AllData doesn't give direction on wiper arm or motor removal. Here are the only diagrams they give for switch replacement.

Wipers won't park and intermittents don't work


Hook up a voltmeter to the two wires on the wiper motor to see if you get a varying voltage when you turn on the intermittent switch. This will tell you if the switch is bad.
If the motor is bad any junkyard should have one.

Check around your area to see if any of the dealers can sell you parts at wholesale prices as it will save you a lot of money.

Sounds like the park circuit in the motor has gone on the fritz. A new wiper motor would be in order.

Wiper on 2003 ford explorer. when turned on a noise comes from under dash and wipers dont work. they will work if I turn on switch and move the wipers, they will cycle once.


it sounds like the problem is the wiper motor if they work when you move them by hand.the motor probably has a bad spot in it,first try hooking up a jumper wire from the battery ground and the other end to the wiper motor body and make sure its a good ground at the motor.if the wipers work alright then permanently hook up a ground to the motor and body,as the motor will have a bad ground not allowing the wipers to work.

Wipers wont work


1.  Turn on your wipers and pop your hood.   2.  If you hear you wiper motor, then you do not need to check your fuses. 3.  If your wiper arms are moving freely, then your linkage from the wiper arms to the motor is disconnected and possibly broken.   4.  If the problem is electrical, do the following:      1.  Check the fuse, and check for power at the fuse.      2.  Check the wiper motor for ground. For a complete circuit, you need power going in and ground               coming out.  Check electrical connections for corrosion or poor connections.       3.  Get a wiring schematic and trace power to the wiper motor starting at the fuse box in the                       following order:           Fuse box           wiper switch           wiper motor      4.  In the rarest of cases a wiper motor or wiper switch is at fault.  I do not recommend replacing                 anything unless you have proof that the part is faulty. (ie. power going into the switch but nothing           coming out.)
