Not sure about this exact car but 99% of all wiper motors are retained with a nut ythart lives under the base of the wiper arm and with three or 4 nuts from the rear of the motor. Take the wiper arm off, possibly requiring the use of a 10 mm wrench, and you will see a large nut, remove this. See if the wioper mote is accessed from the trunk, most likly under a clip in panal, split the electrical connector and remove the nuts holding the motor on. You will see that the collar that had the nut accessed from above will be stiff to move on the wiper shaft. Work it off, scotch brite the shaft, run a small wire brush down the typically plastic tube, lube the shaft with chassis grease or white grease, check that it moves freely in the collar and reassemble

good luck

sounds like the wiper motor either went bad or it is somehow stuck on something or something is stuck on it. most likely just a bad wiper motor which should be an easy fix and not to expensive. good luck

Rear window wiper works for a few days or weeks


Check the plug is completely plugged into the motor. Maybe a bad connection in the motor itself. Also check the switch, try wiggling it when turning on.

My 07 nissan murano rear windshield wiper doesn't work properly it goes the wrong way, not on the window.


You need to adjust the wiper arm location. Loosen the 12 mm or 10 mm nut that holds the rear wiper arm. Wiggle the arm until it comes off. Then turn on the rear wiper for a second and turn it off, leaving the key on. This way the rear wiper motor will do it's sweep, and them park where it's suppose to. Then reattach the rear wiper arm and secure the nut and recheck.

Thanks Jay!

Rear wiper and washer of BMW 5 E39 not working


I had the same problem. I thought it was an issue with a blown fuse, but also noticed that the rear wiper was very stiff.
I solved it by opening the rear window (so the wiper is not clicked into the motor) then squirt some WD40 into the wiper mechanism (I put the oil in from the outside). Gently move the wiper from side to side until it starts to free up - after a couple of movements the wiper should be moving freely again. No issues since.

At the same time, check that the washer jet is correctly angled. Mine was squirting directly into the wiper which may have caused it to rust up a bit.
