    Julie,
    It took awhile, but I finally figured out that in order to remove the wiper motor you first need to disconnect the "arms" connecting the motor to the wipers. You do this by removing the clip that keeps the arms from coming off the end of the motor. You may need to remove the cowling in order to get to the connecting arms. The clip is a "spring clip", you will need a flat head screw driver to lift it up and then it will slide off the end of the shaft.

SOURCE: How do you remove the windshield wiper arms

The wiper arms have a push in tab at the very bottom at the fitting that is pressed into the wiper linkage below the screen. Use a flat headed screwdriver to pry out the tab. Once out the arm can be pulled right off. Now you can remove the cowling screen

Pull up on the wiper arm, you will see a tiny little blade on the side of the wiper arm where it goes over the post, take a little screwdriver and pry that out board, this will release the arm from the post, it will be tight, wiggle the arm and pull straight out away from the post.

sounds like a loose nut. there are nuts that hold the wiper arms on, they may be under a cover but theyre at the base of the wiper arm. also there's a nut that holds the wiper linkage onto the wiper motor. if you can move the wipers independently, it's the nuts connecting the wiper arms.if you move one arm and the other moves with it, it's the nut holding the linkage to the motor.

    Follow the Dark Blue/White wire or Brown/White wire from the Multifunction Switch to the wiper module according to the schematic.
    Also, one can trace the wires from the windshield wiper motor to the wiper module by peeling away the wiring loom and looking for a Yellow/Red wire that leads to the module.

    The wiper motor on my 1983 Ford Ranger still works but the wipers no longer move. I think there is a failure of the mechanical linkage. Where do I go to find repair parts?


    why do you think the motor still works if the wipers don't move? Can you hear the motor run or can you see a little movement when you turn the switch on?

    What happens when you activate the washers?

    go to a salvage yard that allows you to remove the parts yourself. Then you can see how the motor and linkage assembly comes out.


    don't have 1983 info, but here is 1994:

    Windshield motor


    The wiper linkage s almost always held on to the motor with a nut on the windshield side. If you can't move the motor around enough to get at it then you will have to take off the grill or cowl on top of it. There should be screws in the end facing the hood. Undo them and it should come off. Then you can undo the nut. Hope this helps.

    Windshield wipers will not move. Arms from motor


    Hello

    The windshield wiper linkage comes as an assembly. The assembly comes with the two rotating splines that the wiper arms attach to. you must remove wiper arms. Remove cowl trim and remove bolts that hold the pivot points to the body. The new linkage that snaps to the wiper motor should come with a new retaining clip. You have to fish the linkage assembly through the access holes in the body by un bolting the wiper motor.
