    1st trick: Unplug the motor before you do anything! There is always power to the wiper motor. If you happen to move it so that the auto-park switch closes, it will start running to go back to the park position. If you happen to have a finger in the mechanism when this happens, you'll be in a world of hurt. /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    2nd trick: The very last step is to plug in the power to the new motor. See warning above. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif
     
  3. Exactly what he said !! I need to change out mine in the jimmy soon. Also think it needs some gromets and such so the linkage will work smooth too !

    To disconnect the actuall pump from the wiper arm link, I moved the wipers in the UP positions.

    Well I put the new re-build motor in about 10 mins. Went smooth. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
