First you have to remove the wiper arms. Then remove the cowl plate between the windshield and the hood (screws will be in the top of the plate and inside the hood). This will give you access to the back of the wiper motor. There you will find a clip holding the wiper arm mechanism to the motor shaft. Remove the clip and the arm mechanism. Now remove the connectors and take the nuts off the front of the wiper motor. It will pull off the firewall. Reverse procedure to install new one.

The governor for the wipers is located near the fuse box. It is wired to the harness going to the wiper 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.

First, remove the windshield wipers. Then you can remove the cowel just in front of the windshield. There are a bunch of screws connecting it to the firewall. Once you remove this, close the hood. Now everything is easily accessible and the rest is intuitive. Replace everything by using the opposite procedure.

I changed mine (1992) by removing the vented piece that runs between the windshield and the hood. Pop the hood and you will find screws to remove this as well as a a few screws from the top in between the grill type vents near the wiper blades. ( Remove the wiper arms and unscrew th antennae also) Lift this pc. out and you will gain access to the nuts that secure the motor to the firewall. Remove the motor harness, then disconnect the motor from the wiper connector. Try new motor by connecting to the harness and turning it on from the cab BEFORE you take anything apart. This will verify taht the motor is the problem. Good luck!

A clogged fuel filter can cause a 1989 Ford F150 XLT Lariat 351 Windsor motor to feel lazy and sluggish up to 45 miles per hour. Fouled spark plugs can also cause this issue.

no. Make sure wiper is in "OFF" position before you turn off your car.
