On each wiper arm there is a screw in it holding it on the wiper gear. Just take out the screw pull it off and reposition it how you like.
The relay is attached to the bracket that holds the wiper motor to the hatch.
the wiper switch is probably broken internally or shorted out.
The 1998 Kia Sportage has the most common hook-end wiper arms. See sources and related links below for installation videos. Also, purchase the replacement blades first and there will be additional instructions/illustrations on the replacement packages. Locate and press the tab or button where the wiper blade is inserted into the hook of the wiper arm and pull wiper blade out of hook. You may have to rotate and flex the blade to make enough clearance for the hook to pass through.

The 2005 Kia Sportage wiper blade sizes are 24" drivers and 16" passenger side wiper blades. 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 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.
That appears to be a dealer-only Kia part. I do not see it in aftermarket catalogs.
The wiper is just the part of the windscreen wiper assembly - usually rubber, although other materials can be used - that comes into contact with the screen. The Frame holds the wiper blade, and the arm connects the frame to the wiper motor. In flat beam wiper blades like the Aerotwin, the frame and wiper blade are combined in a single unit.
It is important to have functioning wiper blades on a car. To replace the wipers, a person must slide the wipers off the hook, and properly dispose of them. Next slide the new wipers on, or over and into the hook, depending on the wiper hook type.
Most likely it's the motor assembly. There is an internal switch that keeps the motor running until the wiper blades are in the "park" position. If the internal switch fails, the wiper will continue to run or will turn off wherever the blades are when you turn off the wipers. Either can happen when the wiper internal switch fails.
I do not see a rear wiper listed in the aftermarket application guides for 2005 or newer so if you're asking about one of those years, it appears to have a special kia wiper and you'll have to ask your dealer when you purchase the replacement since you'll have to go there for the wiper. The 1995-2002 Kia Sportage has the most common hook-end wiper arms on front and back however. See sources and related links below for installation videos. Also, purchase the replacement blades first and there will be additional instructions/illustrations on the replacement packages. Locate and press the tab or button where the wiper blade is inserted into the hook of the wiper arm and pull wiper blade out of hook. You may have to rotate and flex the blade to make enough clearance for the hook to pass through.
The nut that holds the wiper in place might be loose. check under the plastic cover at the end of the wiper arm where it mounts to the back door.
This answer varies based on year. 1995-2002 you can get an aftermarket - see sources and related links below. 2005-2011+ is a special rear wiper blade you have to get at the dealer so they will know the size.
the nut that holds the wiper arm on came loose. just needs tightened.
If one wants to replace a wiper linkage there are a few steps involved. Pull the wiper arm away from the windshield until the arm locks in vertical position. Unbolt the nut that holds the wiper arm to the linkage and pull the wiper arm off the linkage. Open the hood and unbolt the wiper motor and slide the motor off of the linkage. One then will remove the wiper linkage and install a new one.
Windshield wiper motors have an internal switch that allows a wiper motor to stay running long enough to keep the wipers moving until they reach the "park" position. Once the wiper gets to the park position, the wiper motor is shut off. The internal switch often fails and either the motor will shut off immediately, wherever it is or it will keep running. It sure seems that you need a new wiper motor.
Activate the rear wiper and open the upper tailgate while in mid-wipe. The wiper will stop, and you can replace the blade. When completed, close the tailgate and the wiper will return to the rest position. Be very cautious not to pull on the arm, it will damage the internal workings. www.tnrovers.com
take that to a shop, that is an internal part, dont try to replace that yourself
Wiper motors have an internal switch that keeps the wipers running after you turn them off. The switch stays active until the wipers get to the "PARK" position and if the drivers wiper switch is off, then the wiper motor is turned off internally. I suspect the internal switch has failed. Unfortunately the switch cannot be easily replaced. Fortunately, wiper motors are not terribly expensive.
Wiper motors have an internal switch that keeps the wiper running until it gets to the "park" position. Sometimes the internal switch fails and the wipers keep running, never sensing the park position. When that happens, you'll need to replace the wiper motor.
It's possible that the wiper switch is bad, but most likely it's the wiper motor itself. Wiper motors have an internal switch that only turns off when both the manual switch is turned off AND the wiper blade is in the park position. If the wiper motor cannot sense that it has hit the park position, it will run continuously.
If the passenger wiper works, either the drivers side wiper arm or the windshield wiper transmission is defective. The linkages that work the wiper arms is called a transmission.
