I have done that recently, unbolt the motor from windshield wiper assembly first ( 4 nuts - 3 on the metal, 1 in the middle on top of motor itself), then undo one bolt that holds it to the car, unplug the wire, and you are done. ( getting it out will be a bit tricky, i had to later drop the whole whindshield wiper assembly, and pull it out before i could get the wiper motor out , not hard to do, 2 nuts and a couple of lovetaps with a hammer
