Windshield Wiper Motor Swap Out 1983 CJ7

My windshield wiper motor would not return to proper resting position when turned off and the intermittent wiper would not work either so I decided to replace the motor. To replace the motor you will need to lower the windshield to access the wiper motor. Remove the three torx head screws that secure the motor to the windshield frame and remove the wiring clip. You will also need to remove the two black plastic access covers at the base of the windshield frame to access the linkage(good time to lubricate the linkage). Remove the clip from the linkage where the first access opening is located closest to drivers side and slide the motor and linkage out. You will need to disconnect the wiring harness from below the dash to remove entirely. Remove the clip that attaches the linkage to the motor and re-install on the new wiper motor. Install the new wiper motor in the same steps, only reversed of course. Put everything back in the same position that it was removed to prevent the wipers from not working properly.

"You will need to disconnect the wiring harness from below the dash to remove entirely"

i get to this part and cannot find the wiring harness. did you have to remove the dash at all or is this something i should be able to find by scrunching under the dash. is there any markings to help find the correct harness? there is a mess of wires under my dash and i cannot seem to find what to disconnect. any more detail on this would be helpful.

thanks

I've always been able to pull the connector up thru the hole in the cowl.
