How to replace a 99 se Bonneville windshield wiper motor

Windshield wiper motors are generally easy to replace. You need to remove the windshield wipers and take off the small grill panel above the hood and under the windshield. You should see the motor in there. It simply unbolts and unplug the electrical connector and replace it with a new one.

How to replace wiper motor

The procedure is a bit complicated - the wiper assembly is below the air intake grill at the bottom of the windshield. You need to remove the wipers, the grill cover, the windshield lower retaining frame, the motor retaining bolts, and so on. Best bet is to get a workshop manual for the car for details.

    I have one wiper that does not work the other stops in the middle of the windshield how can i fix them

    The motor could be bad, but it's likely that the ball joint connections under the hood area under the cowl have become disconnected for the one windshield wiper arm.

    The connection of the arm that moves should be checked for being at the correct angle for parking.
