Need to know where the window washer motor is located in a 99 kia sephia

Motor is located in the bottom of the wiper fluid resevoir tank. The tank must be removed to replace the motor. Usually they are removed through the wheel well from under the fender. Wheel removal and splash guard inside wheel well also. The motor itself is quite small, slightly larger than a 'D' size battery. Replacement is very easy once the tank is off, just a clip and a hose.....Mike

How do you take out an altanator for a 1997 saturn sc

Disconnect the battery. Take off the belt. You'll need to unbolt the 3 power steering bolts holding on the pump, you can get to them thru the holes in the pulleys. You'll need to jack up the passenger side and remove the wheel and inner fender well. That will give you room to get to the bolts, wire and plugs. You'll have to take it out thru the wheel well.

The battery is in the driver's front fender in front of the wheel. It is directly below where the (+) and (-) terminals are in your engine bay. You will need to remove the wheel and the wheel cover to access it.
