wiper motor


My windshield wiper motor makes much noise and the windshield fluid spray doesn't work.


Would all this be caused by just the motor itself?

Is it expensive to replace?

I tried looking around and can't seem to find mustang wiper motors for a 2004.

Well if the motor is making a bunch of noise then I'm guessing it's the motor. I'm not sure how the sprayers work.

If you end up needing a motor I have one for ya

....The fluid is ran by a pump that mounts onto the exterior of the reservoir.

Mustang 99-04 Windshild Washer Pump by Ford at LRS - Same Day Shipping!

The wipers are ran by a motor in the cowl. Just google and one will pop up.

Are these hard installations?

I can't seem to find an installation guide in the Haynes Manual.

Car got T-boned on the passenger side so I bought it and am using most of the drivetrain and selling off the other stuff.

Remove the cowl panel and the motor is straight forward from there. Easiest way to do the pump is prolly to just remove the whole reservoir which is straight forward as well, as long as you have some common sense youll have no trouble.

Anyone know how to clean the fluid spray nozzles? My driver's side works fine but my passenger side just puddles up at the bottom of the windshield.

I've tried a toothpick and a qtip with alcohol on it.

remove the nozzle and soak it in hot water for awhile if that dont work theres other things you can try, also try to clean the holes with a small sewing needle if anything. Better yet just buy some new nozzles.

I finally found some directions, but I am afraid of how to get the cowl vent off without breaking it, the piece of plastic that the wiper arms go into.

Is there a way of getting it off or do you just pry it off.

Does mom still wipe your ass?

Yes it just pops off. They get brittle over time and can break very easily though...and arent exactly cheap for what they are (i wanna say $200 or so). The safest way to do it is to remove the wipers, remove the pillar trim, and then remove it.....It can be done w/o removing the pillar trim..but removing the trim is a lot safer.

The directions say just to take it off, it doesn't say it how it is held on or that it just pops off.

Life would be so much easier if everything was like mom wiping your ass.
