REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
Your car may be equipped with either a round motor or a rectangular motor assembly.
- Make sure that the wiper motor is in the park position, then disconnect the negative battery cable.
- If equipped, remove the screen or grille that covers the cowl area above the wiper motor linkage.
- Tag and disengage the wiring from the motor and the hoses from the washer pump.
- Reach through the cowl opening and loosen, but do not remove the nuts which attach the transmission drive link to the motor crank arm. Then, disconnect the drive link from the crank arm.
Some wiper motors will utilize lower retaining screws which are difficult or impossible to access without using an extension. Make sure all bolts are removed before attempting to remove the motor.
- Remove the motor attaching bolts (usually 3) then remove the motor, guiding the crank arm through the hole. To install:
- Make sure the motor is in the park position.
- Install the motor to the cowl while guiding the crank arm through the hole, then install and tighten the motor attaching bolts.
- With the crank arm attached to the drive link, tighten the retaining nuts.
- Engage the motor wiring.
- If equipped, install the screen or grille to the cowl area.
- Connect the negative battery cable.
- Test the motor to insure that it returns to the park position and that the washers work. Make sure that there is no interference on either side of the windshield and that the wiper arms do not bind.
