Hi, I'm Don from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and the next time you need a part for your vehicle, think of 1AAuto.com. Thanks.

In this video, we're going to show you how to replace a wiper motor on this 1996 Chevy Tahoe. The items you'll need for this include a Phillips screwdriver, a flat blade screwdriver, and a 10mm socket and ratchet.

First, using a flat blade screwdriver, just pry up this clip, pull the wiper arm up and off. Do the same for the other wiper arm.

Next, you want to remove this Phillips screw from either side of your vehicle. Then this panel just pulls off, and repeat the process on the other side. Then remove this Phillips screw and the Phillips screw on the same spot on the other side. We'll just fast-forward as Don does this. Now pull off your weather strip and remove these six additional Phillips screws. We'll fast-forward while Don does this. Now pull the cowl up and forward, and now you just want to pull your washer hose off and slide the cowl out.

Next, loosen up these four 10mm nuts. We'll fast-forward as Don does this. Now, pull the linkages off of the motor stud. Then pull this blue clip from the motor harness, pry up on this tab, and pull the harness free. Then, you want to remove these three 10mm bolts. Now, we'll just fast forward as Don removes these. Now, pull the motor free.

Take your new motor, push it back into place, and replace those three 10mm nuts. Connect your harness and push that blue clip into place.

Now, you want to reset the motor. Put the car into accessory, turn your wiper blades on and off. Push your wiper linkages back on to the stud, and make sure that you have them centered so that you know that your wipers are going to be where they're supposed to be. Then tighten up the two 10mm nuts on this one.

Now, put your cowl panel back into place and reconnect the washer hose. Then line it up and replace those two Phillips screws on either side of the cowl panel. Then replace the six screws in the center of the cowl panel. Now replace those two side panels and the Phillips screw that holds them into place. Push the weather strip back on. Then close your hood.

You want to line up that line with the slot, push the arm back onto the post, push the tab in, put the arm down, and then repeat the process for the other arm. Then you're all set.
