Can someone please tell me the location of the wiper motor in my 1998
camry?

Thanks.

Under the plastic cowl at the base of the windshield.

Thanks. Do you also know the procedure to remove the plastic cowl to
access the motor? I am still waiting for my service manual to arrive
from Amazon. Any help in the meantime will be appreciated.

Yeah. You'll need to take the wiper arms off with a 14mm socket (I think,
maybe 12). Then the only other thing holding on the cowl is the rubber
strip that seals the rear of the hood when it is closed. Pop out the clips
holding that strip on, and the cowl will come off in two pieces. Oh, and
there may be one or two little pop rivets on the left and right side of
the cowl as well.

Thanks very much qslim. Exactly as you mentioned. You saved me CAN $120
in labour costs. God bless you.

I opened the old motor control module and disappointed with the
construction of the breaker mechanism. Designed to fail after certain
number of cycles.

I will rework the old unit and post the modification procedure here so
that any one interested and equipped can repair the motor control
module easily without having to buy a new motor assembly.
