Open up the cowl cover and look at it, it's pretty obvious.
Unplug motor, remove nut from shaft and pull off the linkage arm, remove the 3 screws holding the motor in place and lift it out.
Intallation is the reverse.
One tip: To make sure the motor is in "time" I always plug it in before I connect the linkage to it, and turn on the wipers once then turn them off so the motor "parks." Then connect the linkage arm. Avoids any possiblity of the wipers going the wrong way on first startup.
