Happened to get a bad one
It won't turn at all. Casing only heats up. Plugged it in without mounting it, and the old one ran, but the new one didn't. The return process started easily -- they asked for VIN and part number and all. Really appreciated that they didn't seem to need the paperwork. But I haven't heard from them in several days. They didn't say what they were doing about it. Wondering if they are sending me a return label or something.

Wiper Motor replacement
Highly recommend this wiper motor replacement. It fit my 2001 Oldsmobile Silhoutte as advertised and was relatively easy to install. The most challenging item was removal of the rear screw that held the motor into the bracket; the star fitting was not the same as the other two screws. Otherwise straightforward.
