11 Unscrew the motor mounting bolts, and separate the motor from the linkage assembly.

Refitting
12 Refitting is a reversal of the removal procedure. There are two tightening torques for the motor mounting bolts - the lower one for bolts that are being re-inserted into an old motor, and the higher ones for bolts that are being inserted into a new motor. Make sure that the wiper motor is in its УparkedФ position before fitting the motor arm, and check that the wiper linkage is in line with the motor arm.
