  1. can anyone please tell me how to remove the wiper motor assembley ?
    the wipers don't work and the motor gets real hot when you try to turn on
    wipers
    I would like to bench test the motor and or replace it
    but I can't figure out how to remove it
    ( I removed the 3 bolts but it is still attached to the arms

    Thank you for Any help

    Behind the glove box there is a clip which holds the wiper arm
    transmission to the wiper motor just remove the clip & remove the motor.
    It sounds like the wiper motor decided to retire

  3. Thanks for the help It took 5 min. after I knew what to do
    (it's so simple when you know what your doing)
    the motor is fried
    I was going to order a new one from Kragens
    But
    there web site only shows a 244 Dl or a 245 DL ( No 240 DL)
    whoul you know if either ones wiper motor would work

    Once again
    Thank you for your help

    What usually happens is the glue fails that holds the magnets in the motor
    housing and they jam up the rotor. You can take it apart and epoxy these
    back on, or just replace the motor.

    A 244 is a sedan, a 245 is a wagon, both of these say "240 DL" on the back.
    The wiper motor is identical in any 240 or 260 series though.

    I did that and it has held up for years. I actually just disassembled
    the motor, taking the housing and magnets off and leaving everything
    else in place. Seemed simpler than pulling out the glove box to get at
    the wiper arm assembly, etc.
