The motor is, not surprisingly is at the bottom of the reservoir - and the best way to access that is through the wheel well - an alternative to removing the reservoir from the car - which is kinda a PITA too.
NOTE: you could likely do all this without pulling the wheel off, but trust me - it's worth the effort.
NOTE: is might be easier to disconnect the wiring/hose after the motor is taken out of the reservoir. Better access to the connectors.
The best tool to getting the motor out is a small angled pry bar - or even a tack remover. They offer an angled head to get the right leverage to gently extract the motor without damaging anything. Pry from a couple of sides - wiggle and pull. It'll come out.
The replacement motor I bought from Autozone ($15) was semi-universal - has the correct placement and configuration for the wiring and hoses, diameter of the intake and rubber seal. The universal part though is in wiring connection. You may have to do a bit of cutting / splicing / heat-shrink insulating.
NOTE: READ the included instructions all the way through BEFORE cutting! I didn't and made extra work for myself.
Probably a prudent thing to put some solvent in and test before...
NOTE: the day after I replaced mine, I was at a local junk... er, I mean "Salvage" yard for other parts - bought another pump for just $2 - a just-in-case spare while I was thinking about it. (and likely to never be needed ;))
The washer solvent pump is mounted into the bottom of the solvent reservoir. That makes the first step taking it out.
See "Related Questions" below for instructions on removing the reservoir from a 1996-1999 Taurus/Sable.
For the pump itself:
Do not operate the pump until fluid has been added to the reservoir.
Remove the reservoir, disconnect the hose & electrical connections - carefully pry the old pump out (avoid damaging the plastic housing).
When reinstalling a pump unit, use soapy water on the seal to help lubricate the rubber while sliding the pump in.
