How do you replace the windshield wiper motor on a 1988 Ford F-150?
Remove the bottom trim on the window. This pops off. Then remove both wiper blade assemblies by pulling the arm back toward the front of the truck, then pulling partially out the retaining clip, and then pulling the whole arm off of the truck.
Next, remove all of the screws (on top and under the hood) on the metal cowling (not sure if this is what its called) between the hood and window. This will give you access to a cover plate above the wiper motor linkage and make it much easier to get the bolts out of the motor. Remove the cover plate. Then remove the retaining clip from the wiper motor linkage and pull the control rods off.
Finally, remove both plugs from the motor. Remove all three bolts (one is a two part bolt with a ground attached) holding the motor on the firewall and pull it free.
Hopefully this will help. (Stupid me forgot the cover plate came off and tried to pull it out and take the retaining clip off that way.) Assembly is the reverse.

Where can you find a wiring diagram to show the grounding points for the windshield wipers on a 1998 GMC Sierra?
Answer A shop manual will usually contain a detailed witing diagram. I've had good luck with Haynes manuals the 1988-1989 Chilton repair manual c/k series wiring schematic shows a PINK wire from the windshield wiper switch to the windshield wiper motor and the black lead from the motor to ground if you have the manual see page 6-30
If the wiper motor isn't working, check the fuse to start with, then the wiring connections. If the wiper motor is working but not the wiper arms, unscrew the cowl piece just behind the hood ( the part that looks like a grill ) and see if the little plastic inserts that hold the wiper arms in place have dry-rotted or not. They are available at your local dodge dealership and are pretty cheap.
How do I know what fuse to change on a 1988 Ford Bronco II if the windshield wipers and the gauges fuel oil and heat are not operating?
Assuming that you mean "wiper blade" (blade and frame) which are replaced often rather than "wiper arm" (piece from the spindle at the hood to the wiper blade) which are rarely ever replaced, the 1988 Chevrolet S10 Pickup takes 16" wiper blades on both sides front. See sources and related links below for more information. Since there are over 22 different wiper arm attachments, do not buy wipers just by length only - be sure…

The 1988 Toyota Corolla (excluding the FX16) takes 19" drivers side and 17" passenger side replacement windshield wiper blades (and a 13" rear wiper blade if applicable). The 1988 Toyota Corolla FX16 takes 17" on both sides front and a 13" rear. Be sure to always lookup the exact part numbers for the brand of wipers you decide to purchase. This not only ensures the correct lengths but also the correct attachments. See related links…
