Default Wiper Motor Replacement

Can anyone give me a heads up as to how to get to the front wiper motor for replacement, 00 LW series. I can see it, but not sure how to get the plastic guard off. Thx

Make sure to get the rotating shaft from the motor to the transmission in between the alignemt marks after "homing" the wiper motor. If not, things will get WACKY!!!

Thanks for the help, it took about 2 hours with the help of a neighbor and $42.00 for the part. My local Saturn tech also helped out.

Cool, I am glad someone was able to help you out IceMan2. I saw your thread, read it, and was not able to reply, due to my lack of never doing this, but I hope Charlie will see this thread, and put it in the How-to section of the forum.
