Question about 2006 Chevrolet Uplander
It is possible to fix the problem; it is not the motor itself - the shaft/housing gets corroded and eventually seizes. Remove the wiper and bolts from the outside and the panel on the inside. Remove the wiper motor, take the screws out and open the motor. Put as much solvent as you can into the shaft area and let it soak. Put the nut back on the the end of the shaft and tap the shaft loose as far as it will go - us a punch in the center of the shaft so you don't screw up the threads. Remove the nut and continue to twist and tap the shaft out. It is possible the corrosion was very bad nad the housing is now cracked or worse by forcing the shaft out of that area. You will need to determine whether it is still ok for use. As long as there is a good amount of meat for the shaft to run in, it should be ok. Also - the nut still has to go on the end of the housing. You will also have to look at the big plastic gear and ensure it is still good - the metal worm gear may have grinded it down too far depending on how many times it has cycled. Once its out, its straight forward to clean and smooth down the shaft and housing, load up the whole thing with lithium grease and reassemble. If it proves to be pointless along the way, no haven't lost anything and would have had to remove the unit to replace it anyways.

SOURCE: rear wiper motor broke
Well you going to have to open the tailgate up and remove the inside cover that is attached to it. You will need a small flat head and a No. 2 star head screw driver and some gloves so that you don't cut your hands....
First where the handle is remove the caps on the handle and then remove the handle there may be a small pocket around the handle to remove it also with the screw driver....And then remove the garnish from around the tailgate by using the small flat head and your fingers to pry it off with....Remember just to take your time when doing this and wear some safety glasses so that nothing goes in your eyes.
Once you have removed the garnish you should see the wiper motor there should be three bolts that hold it in place and wire wire coupler that it hooked up to it. And before you undo the motor you will need to go on the outside of the tail gate you will need to remove the wiper arm off of the motor and then take the rest off after that.
