WIPER MOTORS SHOULD LAST FOR MANY YEARS. IF YOU HAVE ALREADY CHECKED THE FUSE BOX AND USED A LIGHT METER TO SEE IF THERE IS A BREAK IN THE WIRE, THAN IT IS YOUR MOTOR. YOU MUST RAISE HOOD AND REMOVE BLACK PLASTIC SHROUD, BETWEEN YOUR HOOD AND WINDSHIELD. YOU MAY HAVE TO GOTO THE DEALER TO REPLACE THE ROUND CLIPS BUT THEY MAY BE ABLE TO BE REUSED IF REMOVED CAREFULLY. A FEW BOLT AND WIRES AND THAT SUCKER IS OFF. CHECK JUNKYARDS FOR USED MOTORS AS I BET THEY ARE PRICEY NEW.

It is attached directly to the wiper motor. Remove the three small screws that hold a black plastic cover on the wiper motor. The pulse board is under that cover. Most of your wiper motor problems are from a faulty pulse board.

If the wiper motor is good and the motor shaft turns when the wiper is on then you need to check the linkage for the wiper arm. the rear wiper motors and switches are notorious for going bad in the jgc you may have lost your switch.

If the windshield wipers are not working in a 1998 Ford F150, the cause could be a blown fuse. There could also be a problem with the vacuum hoses connected to the wiper motor or the wiper motor itself.

The 1998 Acura TL wiper blade sizes are 24" drivers and 19" passenger side wiper blades. Do not buy by length-only however. See Sources and Related Links below for more information. Since there are over 22 different wiper arm attachments - be sure to lookup exact wiper blade part numbers by vehicle make, model and year for the brand wiper you decide to purchase. This ensures correct length AND correct attachment.
