I changed the wiper motor in my 95 JGC. remove the vent near the windshield on the exterior of the jeep... you will have to open the hood. remove weather stripping and about 5 screws to remove the plastic vent, and the wipers. the wiper motor is located on the drivers side near the windshield below the vent. a couple bolts to take out, pull the wiper motor out of the rotating arms, unplug, and replace.

Remove the wiring harness from the wiper motor. Remove the wiper arm linkage. Remove the wiper motor retaining bolts. Reverse the process to install the new wiper motor.

You must first remove the wiper arms. then, remove the screws holding the black plastic grill under the wiper arms. This will expose the motor. You will then need to disconnect the wiper arm transmission linkage from the motor, the remove the three bolts holding the motor on. Install in reverse order.

It is attached to the wiper motor. It can be easily changed without removing the wiper motor. Unplug the wire harness to the wiper motor, remove the three small screws holding the cover in place, remove the cover, remove the pulse board.

Please clarify or explain what you are trying to accomplish. There are no dip switch setting on that wiper motor that I have ever seen.

Check either at the bottom of the windshield washer fluid reservoir or check to see if the wiper motor has washer hoses connected to it

sometimes you can buy the compleate unit from a salvage yard, but iff you want to play you will need some torx sockets. remove the wiper motor assy. and fix it on a bench.

You have to unbolt the wipers off the car then take off the cowl panel by either bolts or clips then the motor should be exposed then simply unbolt it.

The pulse board may be at fault. We have a large fleet of Chevys and every time we have a wiper problem it is never the wiper motor, it is the pulse board which is attached to the wiper motor. This part is available at your local auto parts store. It can be changed easily without removing the wiper motor from the vehicle.

I did this on a 1995/1996 ('N' reg) Clio 1.9 Diesel and I imagine it's very similar for the 1997 model (both are Mark 1's). Anyway, it's easy. At the bottom of the wiper there's a plastic cover which pivots up revealing the nut that attaches the wiper to the motor. Simply unscrew it with a spanner and you're done. Unfortunately, the nut in my case was completely stuck solid and I had to hacksaw it off. I then got another wiper from a salvage yard. The reason I was removing the wiper was because I was replacing the wiper motor. This was also straightforward, a new motor being obtained from the same salvage yard - installation should be obvious (remove the plastic trim on the inside of the hatchback, unclip the power cable and unscrew the three bolts holding the motor in place; repeat in reverse order for new motor). One problem I encountered was that I'd earlier bought a motor off eBay, but it was from a J-reg Clio and the arm extending from the motor onto which you attach the wiper was too short.

That usually means a poor or lost ground the the motor.
