In this clip, were going to talk about the proper way to diagnose, remove, and replace a faulty windshield wiper motor. In this step, were going to talk about the proper service procedure in order to remove our wiper motor from the bulkhead. I have a ten millimeter socket with my swivel and my quarter inch drive ratchet. Were going to take this mounting bolt out here. Once you have it finger tight as you can see you can unscrew the bolt by hand. Just like so. We got it attached to a solenoid pack. We're going to fold this out of the way, set our bolt in the magnetic tray, and move on to the lower mounting bolts. I'm going to move over here to one of the upper bolts. And now for another lower bolt. For this one I'm going to add an extension to give it a little extra reach. The number of mounting bolts varies pretty widely depending upon the make and model. Some have three, some have as little as two. This one here in particular happens to have five. And now for the last mounting bolt. And there you go.
