First are you sure that the motor is bad? Did you check the fuse, 4.8 amp circuit breaker(this goes out alot causing the wipers not to work.It is in position 15 on you fuse box), switch. If all of those are good then it is time to change the wiper motor. You will need a Phillips head screwdriver, a flat head screwdriver, a rachet and I believe a 7/16 socket. First thing you need to do is remove the wiper arms, to do this simply lift the blade away from the window. On the bottom of the wiper arm where it connects you should see a little slide with the arm pulled back use the flat head screwdriver and slide the slide over to hold up the arm. now go ahead and remove the wiper arm. Once you have removed the wiper arms not it is time to remove the trim (the trim is the vent looking piece under the wiper arms)over the wiper motor. To do this you will need you Phillips head and remove I believe 6 or head screws that are in the trim, be careful when you remove the trim as you washer hoses are attached to this. Now take you rachet and remove the 2 or 3 bolts holding the motor in, unplug the wires and remove it from the wiper track. To install just do everything in reverse

It also possible for your wiper switch or the wiper governor (module) to go bad. I would suggest you test the new motor by removing the plug and pluggin it into the new motor before taking anything apart. It might not be a bad motor.

The windshield needs to be folded into the down position to access the wiper motor. There are a couple cut-outs in the metal of the cowl that allows access to the wiper motor & linkage. There are release bolts on either side of the windshield & of course the top needs to be off.
