Wj rear wiper problem

since day 1 for me the rear wiper would come on when it wants too. either mode, sometimes it wont come on until 5 or 10 minutes after you turn the switch, but other time it'll come on right away.

could this be the motor?

Do as me, Take the wiper off. Do you Really need it???

Planning to find something to blend the holes with and Take away the motor/axel and holder to.

Looks so much cleaner without.

It's the rear wiper motor going out, it's about a 5-10 minute fix. You'll also need new clips for the rear panel because they will most likely break, take them out and if you break one just take them to just about any parts store and they can match them up and sell you some new ones. As for the motor I believe you can get one at www.rockauto.com.

This page will give you a good idea of what you're looking at...
