The guys at Four Wheel Drive Hardware can take care of you. I think the motor is 79 bucks, they always have them in stock.
www.4wd.com
Just tell them what you drive and they do the rest. I have ordered thousands of dollars in parts with great service without exception.
Hope that helped-

Make absolutely sure that the motor is burn out before you buy a new one. I almost got a new one, until I discovered that one of the linkages was broken inside the windshield frame. This caused the motor to stop turning. Just throwing this up incase you havenít checked yet.

My $0.02,
Marc

Before you go out and spend $80 plus shipping on this check ebay. I got one on there for $10 plus shipping. It ended up being a 4 wire but I was able to trade it for a 3 wire. Ebay is great for used CJ parts. Junkyards are good places to check too. I certainly would rather buy used than new.

I just got mine replaced by Tellico... the first one they sent busted the link nut off after a few tries... BE VERY CAREFUL when you do up the nut onto the very short thread of the wiper motor... as its soft metal and won't take much torque.

Very easy job to switch it... just DON'T REST ANYTHING on the windshield when you have it down flat ... as you will scratch it and thats a real pain !!

If you have the switch out of the dash you can plug it into the motor, but put the power feed of the switch up to the + on the battery and ground the body of the motor. With the switch on the motor should turn.

It sounds like you know the motor's bad.. but just in case you're not sure... either your or your mechanic can jiggle and check all the connections going to the wiper motor. Mine has been bumped, whatever, I don't know HOW many times... into not working. Literally just tightening connections solves SO many problems in a CJ.

(Which leads me to another discussion about keeping proper springs in place to stop bumping so much.)
