The best way to remove it is to follow clear instructions using a Haynes Workshop Manual. I have bought these manuals for all of the cars I have owned over the years, they are a great way to plan how the repair or replacement will proceed and what tools you might require. They also prepare you for possible areas to wacth for when removing items to avoid injury to yourself or further damage to your car. All procedures are marked in 'number of spanners' to show the difficulty level involved.

I have replaced rear wiper motors in the past. It is fairly straightforward but The Haynes Manual will be the best $20 you spend.

SOURCE: rear wiper motor

raise up the tail gate . remove the phillip screws holding the handle or pull down strap.remove all other screws holding the rear plastic tail gate panel in place than start in one corner try to pull down on the plastic panel as it is also held in place with push style plastic clips.you can use a straight blade screw driver to start releaseing the clips.once you have the panel off you have done the hard part/ just unbolt the wiper motor and reassemble.
good luck chris

SOURCE: 1990 dodge ram pickup wiper stopped working. Motor

First you have to remove the metal caps covering the wiper blade locking nut then remove the nut and leftthe wiper arm assembly up and rock back and forth till loose. then pull arm off as you wiggle the arm. next raise the hood and remove the 4 inside screws at the back of the hood remove the valance and the 2 plastic holding clamps then lift up. Once you have valance off look to see if the gears are stripped on the motor or the shaft if they are go to a junk yard and buy new parts. you will find the short rod and a long rod, they should be connected, if not the ball on the end of the long rod may have poped out turn on key then wiper motor and watch the parts move. You will be able to see it right away.
Hope this helps. If you need more asstance please post here and thanks for using fix-ya

Rear wiper will not turn off even when using control switch

Most likely it's your rear wiper motor, unless there's a short somewhere in your wiring leading to your motor. It's a little tricky to get to, to replace it, but very doable. If you don't want to replace it then you can just unplug the connecter right on the motor to make it stop.

To take the motor off you'll have to take off the rear hatch interior plastic cover, remove a few bolts inside, and then take off the wiper and arm to remove a large bolt. I have a 1999 grand cherokee and had three bad rear wiper motors with different problems. I just gave up and don't use it anymore :(

Also, if you're really bad with cars, you can just take the whole wiper and arm off until someone else can fix it :)

There is a nut under the black plastic bezel that needs to be removed. Here is the complete procedure for you to look at. Its possible that your arm isn't adjust at wiper motor...

REMOVAL
- Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.
- Remove the rear wiper arm from the rear wiper motor output shaft. (Refer to 8 - ELECTRICAL / REAR WIPERS / WASHERS/REAR WIPER ARM - REMOVAL).
- Using a small thin-bladed tool, gently pry at the notch in the base of the rear wiper motor output shaft bezel to unsnap the nut cover from the bezel (REAR WIPER MOTOR OUTPUT SHAFT NUT REMOVE/INSTALL). Be certain to take proper precautions to protect the outer tailgate panel and its paint finish from damage during this procedure.
- Remove the nut that secures the rear wiper motor output shaft to the outer swing gate panel (REAR WIPER MOTOR OUTPUT SHAFT NUT REMOVE/INSTALL).
- Remove the bezel and gasket from the rear wiper motor output shaft.
- Remove the trim panel from the tailgate inner panel. (Refer to 23 - BODY/SWING GATE/TRIM PANEL - REMOVAL).
- Disconnect the tailgate wire harness connector for the flip-up glass ajar switch from the flip-up glass latch connector receptacle.
- Disconnect the tailgate wire harness connector for the rear wiper motor from the motor connector receptacle (REAR WIPER MOTOR REMOVE/INSTALL).
- Loosen the two screws that secure the rear wiper motor mounting bracket to the top of the tailgate inner panel.
- Slide the rear wiper motor and mounting bracket forward far enough to disengage the two mounting screws from the keyed slots in the top of the tailgate inner panel.
- Remove the rear wiper motor and mounting bracket from the tailgate as a unit.

1 - BEZEL AND GASKET
2 - OUTPUT SHAFT
3 - TAILGATE OUTER PANEL
4 - NUT
5 - NUT COVER

What you will need to do is to remove the small plastic cap on the wiper arm by prying it off with a screw driver. Then remove the nut that holds the arm onto the shaft. Then get yourself a battery cable puller (from auto parts store) and pull the arm off of the shaft..

Rear Windsreen wiper motor runs continuousley in


The "stop" function is in the motor of the wiper...remove the fuse and call it a day...You shouldn't use it anyway the rear glass is "soft" in these cars and the wiper action will damage the glass over time.

Sounds like a problem within the wiper motor not turning off at rest or not reaching it's rest point to be able to turn itself off, probably needs a new motor. Disconnecting it should have no relation to the front washer operation, you can confirm this by reconnecting the wiper motor to try.

2000 Honda Odyssey rear wiper motor replacement


You are probably correct in thinking its the wiper motor. You can do this but you will need to remove all the interior trim from the rear hatch first. Get a trim clip removal tool at a parts store...it will work much better than just a flat blade screwdriver. You'll have to remove the trim panels starting in order from the top of the door, then the left rear window side trim, then right rear window side trim, then the grab handle, and finally the main rear hatch trim panel. Once inside, removing and replacing the rear wiper motor is easy. You'll start by lifting the cover on the wiper arm retention nut. Remove this nut to get the wiper arm off, then remove the nut under neath which is the motor shaft mounting nut. Now, back inside to remove the other 3 motor mounting bolts. Don't forget to disconnect the connector for the motor wires. Reverse steps to replace.
