Removal
1 The assembly is located in the scuttle at the rear of the engine compartment.

2 Disconnect the battery negative lead.

3 Remove the scuttle grille panel as described in Chapter 11.

4 Where applicable, unscrew the securing bolts, and withdraw the cover from the motor.

5 Disconnect the motor wiring connector.

6 On models where there is insufficient clearance for the wiper linkage to pass between the brake master cylinder and the scuttle, move the master cylinder to one side as follows. Remove the nuts securing the brake master cylinder to the vacuum servo unit, then lift the master cylinder from the studs, and pull it back slightly. Do not disconnect any brake pipes.

7 On models with an electronic control module housing located in the rear corner of the engine compartment, which obscures the end wiper linkage securing bolt, the housing must be removed as follows. Lift off the housing cover, then detach the control modules, and remove the housing. Take great care not to damage the control modules - ideally, they should be removed from the vehicle and stored in a safe place (alternatively, temporarily refit the housing and the control modules, once the wiper mechanism has been removed.

8 Unscrew the nuts securing the motor and linkage to the scuttle, then manipulate the assembly out from the engine compartment (see illustrations).
