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.
one of two possible problems.. (trusting fuse is ok) first is that the wires in the hinge area are prone to breakage. second is that the rear wipers are subject to vast amounts of dirt/salt the shaft of the wiper can leak into the bearings and seize them solid. i would remove the plastic tailgate cover and meter the wires off the wiper and if there is power then you are looking at the motor. hope this helps
Wiper shaft is stuck by rust (aluminium oxide). Remove wiper motor. Knock out wiper shaft with soft hammer. Clean shaft hole with similar size drill bit. Remove screws holding handle and other panel screws and pull on panel (it is held by metal clips).
Normally just check real close for hidden screws behind any handle at ends, all around outside of panel, if carpet, at bottom area, feel for possible hidden screws beneath carpet, the the rest should be pull clips, that release as you pull on the panel. Sometimes it will scare you into thinking something going to break & if so, look again for screws. Usually quick pull works best. try to do it when warm, so panel is less likely to crack.
