Wiper Motor Replacement
The 3rd gen wiper system sadly is one piece. I lost one the joints to the passenger side wiper arm and fell off. Yeah I know the links could be replaced but the chances are the ball stud is going to be too worn out.
You only need a torx screwdriver for the two screw on the edge of the cowl. Then there is a series of plastic fasteners along the engine edge of the cowl cover. Once loose at that point you need to release the wipe arms and blade assemblies. There is a little lever on the glass side of each arm pull it out and away from the arm and the wiper arm will lift right off. Now the cowl kind of push it forward towards the glass a bit and i will release the snaps and lift straight up. I just left the washer line hooked up on mine and just move the cowl forward on the engine. Just need a 10mm socket and remove the 3 bolts hold the assembly and unplug the motor. At this point just reverse the process to go back together.
