Ford Escape Wiper Motor Replacement

Watch the YouTube video

Additional commentary and updates to the video:

In the video, both cowl covers are removed to replace the wiper motor assembly. The wiper motor can be accessed by just removing the driver-side cowl cover. However, the passenger side cowl cover overlaps the driver side. In order to get the driver side cowl from under the passenger side cowl cover easily, 3 of the 4 screws and push clips need to be removed. At that point, you might as well just remove the 4th set and remove the cowl cover as well. When both cowl covers are off, everything lays into place so much easier during reinstallation. Plus, with both cowl covers off, it is a great time to clean out the rain tray of any small debris that may have found it's way through the top grates...and check the cabin filter!

Tool List:

10mm socket
Philips head screwdriver
