Question about 1998 GMC Jimmy
I don;t know how to replace it. and it clicks when i turn it on. so i think i need a new one or something
Unscrew inside panel on tailgate (3 screws-1 each side, 1 in the middle), Unclip and remove by pulling up and out towards the rear. Unscrew all screws holding steel plate down, Unclip plastic clips that hold the rod running behind the plate and unhook rod at top of that opens the window. Unclip wiring harnesses, remove wiper from the outside (1 nut holding it down)and unbolt the motor. It is pretty self explanatory once you have the steel plate removed, just remove and install the screws and clips in the same order and try it out before you put all your screws back into the steel plate since there are so many. Back window must be closed for wiper motor to work. To save yourself from replacing the motor with a new one, 9 out of 10 times it is simply the locking washer has come off of the gear inside the motor, if you pop off the plastic motor cover you will see the washer is off the gears are out of place. Just realigned the gear and replaced the washer with a "C" clip and you just hopefully saved your self some money. Good luck friend and hope this works. keep me posted, be glad to answer any question you may have.

Listen for the motor see if you think it is turning also, you may have a worn conecting rod that is the clicking you are hearing. You will have to pull the door skin to get in to the motor, most Gm's have these plastic plugs that are a tight fit in a corresponding hole in the door frame. You have to get under the skin and pry it away from the door to get them loose. Yes, some will break, & they are hard to find ( DORMAN part # 963-040 fit most newer Gm's) Autozone. Behind the skin you will find wires going to the wiper & window and locks. Then a plastic sleeve held on with black rubber stuff. Then the motor behind all that. You can do it, it sounds difficult, you might cut your finger(s) you might want to go hit something, but you can do it. Work slow, take your time, take pitures at each step, so you do not forget how to put it back together. Key here is work slow.
