    Default 93 suburban wiper motor

    Any tips on how to replace this, they worked last night it snowed throughout the night went to turn them on and they tried to work and then worked on high for about 10 swipes niow they they just bump when the switch is hit. The motor is hot so I dont think it is the switch.

    this happened to me a couple months ago. try pouring some hot water down the grate in front of the windshield. It doesn't have to be boiling or anything just decently warm. It worked for me.
    1999 GMC Sierra 2500 350 vortec
    1967 Jeep M725 ambulance 230 tornado
    1990 Cherokee Limited- 3 inch lift on 33's
    ...and every one of em has issues

    If you have any questions or problems don't hesitate to send me or any other GMTC moderators a PM

    It was the motor it smelled burnt.. It is a fairly easy job. You need to remove the wipers by pulling them up like you are going to change the blades there is a small tab where the wipers slide down on the shaft, pull it out and wiggle the wpier assembly off. Next unbolt the cowl cover thing it is three pieces you will see the wiper moter connection to the assembly that moves the wiper try to mark this so it goes back on the same way unbolt and remove(I screwed up and didnt mark it) unplug and unbolt the wiper motor assembly(10 mm screws) you need to reuse the grommets off the old motor(at least with the one I had) and the rubber shield that goes between the wiper motor and the firwewall. Basically do it all in reverse to put it back together about a 1.5 hour job easy and about $55 in parts.
