You have to remove the grille around the blades and disconnect the linkage going to the arms.

SOURCE: wiper motor for 1998 saturn sl

Those bolts are accessed from inside the vehicle, from under the dash. Here's how:

  • Remove the screw caps from the top of the dashboard.
  • Remove the retaining screws
  • Lift the dash from the rear to pull it clear of the retaining clips
  • Disconnect the defroster duct from the heat/AC module and move it toward the glove box.
  • You should now be able to access the the two bolts holding the wiper module in.
  • Remove them
  • You'll need to reposition the the wiper module slightly to disconnect the plug.
Hope this helps

SOURCE: Can't remove rear wiper arm on my 2007 Dodge

Just Raise the arm up and rock it back and forth and it will come off if it does not come off on the first try use a little lubercating oil where the threaded shaft sticks out of the arm, contine wiggling till it comes loose. If you need more help let me know, this is the way to do it on most cars makes and modles.

My wipers slipped off track of the motor, how do i fix this

That makes no sense

There is only 1 nut holding the wiper linkage
onto the wiper arm.

If you mean someone put the wiper arms on in the
wrong place,remove them & install where they should
be, when the motor is off & in the home pssition.

If you have to get to the linkage, remove the screws for
the metal & plastic vent to cowl grilles

How to replace windwiper motor bushing?

I'am not sure what you mean by the bushing, but I just repaced the wiper motor in my 95 Dakota.
1-remove wiper arms from the pivots.
2-open the hood
3- remove the crowl. there is a line of screws that need to taken out. set the crowl out of the way.
Don't try to remove the motor without removing the crowl. It just won't work.
4- remove the 3 nuts that hold the motor to the firewall.
5 carefully pull out the motor and wiper linkage.
6- remove the nut that hold the linkage onto the motor and remove the linkage. BE CAREFUL you don't want to drop and loose that nut. There is a flat spot on the shaft between the motor and the linkage where a 6" adjutable wrench etc can be put to hold the shaft when taking off the nut.

Follow the above steps in reverse to reinstall. I did use lock tite to make sure the nut doesn't come off the motor shaft.
