For the past six weeks or so, B0XY had been victim to the "rocks in a blender" noise coming from the windshield wiper motor. I found a write-up somewhere that included step-by-step instructions on removal and repair. However, that write-up was a little vague in a couple of spots. I didn't take photos, but here's some more info on the process.<p>1) Remove 3 10mm bolts holding the wiper motor to the firewall, and unplug the motor.<p>2) Remove spring clip from silver wiper arm (top of passenger side footwell), and remove 10mm bolt on gold-colored arm that connects the output of the wiper motor to the wiper arm. I had to wiggle this one off, it was on there pretty solidly.<p>3) Yank wiper motor off the firewall. Mine was held on by a thick silicone/elephant snot sealant, and was a bit of a pain to remove.<p>4) Mark the orientation of the motor "cylinder" at the cap and the base. There's a little spike to help you line up the bottom, but mine wasn't very distinguishable. This will also line you up when you put the long screws back in.<p>5) Unscrew and remove the two long flat-blade screws holding the cap on the motor "cylinder."<p>5) Remove cylinder. Everything's magnetized in there, so it may not be that easy. I couldn't get the cap off, I had to just pull the whole cylinder off.<p>6) If the motor "core" (armature?) stayed in the base, LEAVE IT THERE! It's a pain to get back in. If it followed the rest of the cylinder, it means a little extra work.<p>7) See which of your magnets is unglued - it will be obvious once you get the core out.<p>8) Clean the cylinder and magnets up, and get your Krazy Glue out - the Gel kind makes less of a mess. Test-fit the magnet so you'll know where to line it up, then glue and clamp. Let sit for a while, until you're positive the glue has set.<p>9) If your "core" came out, now's the time to put it back in the rest of the assembly. There are three spring-loaded magnets that surround the end of the motor core by the wormscrew end. These will be a pain to work with.<p>I ended up using a combination of zip-ties, needles and electrical tape to hold them in a compressed position to get the core back in. Resist the temptation to pop off the metal tabs holding the springs from the back - if there's any rust at all, they WILL break.<p>10) Once you have the core seated properly, remove whatever devices you had to use to get the magnets out of the way, and finish reassembly.<p>11) Bolt the motor back on with the three 10mm bolts, and reattach the gold-colored arm to the wiper motor - one direction will put it closer to the silver wiper arm, so pay attention there.<p>12) You may have to move the wipers themselves to get the silver arm back in position to clip on to the gold-colored arm.<p>13) Snug up all the hardware, and plug the motor back in. It will probably scare you half to death as it fires up to realign the wipers.<p>14) Test your now-quiet wipers.
