1991 GM wiper motor replacement problems

How exactly, does one get the clip off the back of the wiper motor post to allow removal of the motor??? I spent over an hour trying to figure out how to do this! I removed the rubber hood insulator and the plastic wiper guard, and have absolutely no way to reach that ^^&(^(%(*%(&^-ing clip! So, now I still have a motor that will not park, and refuses to come out.

What appears to be MORE fun is reinstallation!

HELP!

Gm makes alot of cars and trucks. What are you working on? Some if you remove the mounting bolts you can pull it out enough to pry it off. They do fit tight.

Re: 1991 GM wiper motor replacement problems

Yeah, I was trying to figure out why someone with a GM product was asking how to do a repair in Ford Forum as well. What's worse, after he replied, "GM Grand Marquis", my first thought was "but Mercury made the Grand Marquis."

I think I need a beer.

That's pretty funny! I wish I could say I'm above doing that, but........

Re: 1991 GM wiper motor replacement problems

i use a flat tip screwdriver and it pops off to the side... it is more like an "S" clip... it clips on to the nub and has a portion of the clip that is on top of the nub... i have replaced and pulled these things before in order to clear out debris in the cowel area
