Wiper motor replacement

Hey, whats the easiest way to replace the wiper motor? I started digging into the dash through the gauge cluster, but there is a big panel blocking the wiper assembly. Can it be done from the engine bay?

I dont wanna have to pull the windhsield and drop the dash, anyone done this? Thanks

I can't remember exactly how it's done, the motor itself is under the hood and the shaft goes through the firewall and attaches to the linkage. I had to push it out of the linkage after I removed the gauge cluster, but there wasn't a panel blocking it.

You shouldn't have to go through all of this to access the small nut the motor attaches to. Not sure what year your Waggy is but on my '89 I had to lay on my back on the driver's side floor and place my head about where the gas pedal is. Then I looked straight up and I could see the nut that the wiper motor connects to. I used my snake light to see and used a small socket to remove the nut.

You will think that you're performing yoga to get up there with a small socket but I did it and I'm 6' 220 lbs. Once the nut has been removed gently pry the arm off the wiper motor shaft. Then, you can remove the wiper motor nuts from within the engine compartment. Once these are off, gently remove the motor from the firewall.
