I'm going to recommend you get the Haynes or Chilton's repair manual on your vehicle. However, the process is fairly simple, you have to open the rear door, remove the door panel and access the motor from the inside of the door. The rear wiper arm is usually held in place by a C-clip so be careful taking it off.

Hi, it is pretty straightfoward (ahem, you know how this can go. depends on whether your wiper arm retaining bolt is frozen and snaps off the shaft or not). First, take a look at your fuse to make sure it is intact. If it is, just gently pop off all of the plastic trim covering the tailgate, and undo screws too as necessary. Then test the connector wires to be sure you are still getting power back there to the motor, I used a $4 test light that I got from AutoZone. Then use a large philips head screwdriver and 10mm socket to remove the whole dang thing.

the plastic panel pops off , if you had a trim removal tool it would be nice but it can be improvised , they are just tension clips , get some kind of lever behind the panel and give it a pop , once the plastic panel is off its pretty much self explanatory from there , a connector and couple small bolts , now the outside has nut under the w/w blade , a piece of the arm cover pops up to access the nut , remove w/w arm , then a grommet and under the grommet is a bigger nut that helps hold the motor onto the door/hatch , when reinstalling before you put the w/w arm back on run the wiper and make sure it shuts off and in the park position . should be a piece of cake .

I have the same issue, and just did it yesterday.
1. remove the rear hatch door handle with a T35 star screwdriver bit
2. gently pry the panel up exposing the two bottom plastic push fasteners
3. I used a flat prybar with the notch on the fastener and pryed both off
(the push fastener has 2 washers on the top end so get the pry bar under the top one)
4. Now pull the panel off the side door latches and gently pull down again to expose the two back push fasteners and pry them off too.
You now should be able to remove the motor. The wiring harness comes off easily after you figured out that the only the small end closest to the wires comes off, not the whole "box". Insert the small blade of a jacknife crosswise in the space on top of the connector and pry up the tab letting the fasterner slip off.
I found a motor on the net for about $80 (part number1880686) but it currently is out of stock so I have to wait a couple of weeks to finish. I put the panel back on without the push fasteners and will wait the 2 weeks. Buick dealer wanted $320.
