the wiper motor is mounted on the outside of the firewall, on the top-passenger side. you will need to pinch off each side of the electrical connector to release the latch and pull on the connector to remove it. The motor is attached with four 10mm bolts. Remove the bolts to free the motor from the firewall. the motor mechanism is attached to the wiper pivot rod and needs to be detached with a pair of needle nose pliers. you will need to pivot the wiper slightly to get better access to the fastening nipple. gently slide the pliers between the motor arm and the pivot rod while applying a slight prying force. It will pop out of place. To reinstall, use a channel lock type of plier and apply only as much force as necessary to the nipple/pivot rod to replace the knuckle in the boot.

The windshield wiper motor is under the front cowl. After removing the cowl the motor should be easily accessed for replacement.

To replace the windshield motor on a 2002 Kia Optima, use a fused jumper wire to bypass the relay of the wiper motor. Then use the positive lead to touch the positive terminal on the relay. Remove all mounting bolts of the windshield motor and gently pull the motor out. Replace with new.?æ
