2003 WJ Rear Wiper
My rear wiper suddenly became lazy and has since all but ceased moving, common fault ? Easy to replace ?
Pretty common. Probably bad motor. Have to remove the lift gate interior trim panel to replace it. Be careful, I broke the trim panel where the plastic rivets go and had to buy a new one.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, how do you have time to do it over.

I just did this. First remove the wiper arm and cap from the outside. That should reveal a nut you have to remove. The upper rear hatch trim pulls down easily. The bottom large section has three Philips head screws that need to be removed and then that trim can be removed. Both are held in by plastic push pins. Then the black water liner can be removed just by pulling on it. From there you can see the wiper motor on the inside which is held on by two nuts. It took me less than fifteen minutes to do mine. No special tools required.
