PM codesplice, he's done it. I just waited for them to park normally and pulled the fuse right in front of the steering wheel in the engine bay.

Take out the head light.

Unbolt the wipers.


Not hard at all.

my passenger side has been stuck out for about 2 weeks and I got sick of it not moving (at all) so in a fit of lazyness, I just popped off the nut, moved the wiper to "park" and put the nut back on.... hope it doesn't wake up... I could go pull that fuse.

Dooo eeeet. I got tired of the 9-3 looking like it was having a stroke. Or getting ready to do some kung-fu fighting.

If you guys are that lazy to not actually take out the wiper itself, just disconnect the wiring behind the light.

Really. Not hard at all.

Well, I want to keep the wipers but don't have the cash to resurrect the motors right now. So, taking them out seems a bit excessive.

However, opening the fuse box? Very easy.

like said. Take out corner light. Take out headlight. Unbolt wiper motor. Protect expose connector from elements. Plug up the washer fluid line. Reverse for installation.

There was a guide out there on rebuilding these things. Apparently most just get dirty inside on the contacts. So you take them apart. Clean them up. Grease. And reassemble.
