windshield wiper motor dead

my windshield wiper motor has been making noise every once in awhile for the last few weeks, last night it finally went dead.

i got a new one. looked at the haynes manual and was shocked at how intense the changing is (atleast i think it is).

anyone replaced one of these and have any advice.

I thought that mine was done for but it turned out that the linkage arms were frozen in place, I have the Haynes manual and I went through the entire process as if I was replacing the motor, on my '00 you will need a 1 1/4in wrench to get the black plastic nut off, they call it the pinion nut or something in the book. Then the linkage access panel uses, I cant remember what size, it is common though. Good luck to you, dont know if my '00 and your truck are related enough but good luck!!

first of all, i cant cycle wipers cause they do not move.
What side is considered right side? depends on if your inside truck or standing looking at it from the front?
The access panel on the drivers side is too small to reach in. they must mean the one in the center near the motor, right?

Can you move them by hand? If not it is fine, leave them where ever they are at. The right side is the passanger side. the only time this changes is when you are working on the motor, then they sides are swapped, Right is driver and left is passanger.

yes i can move them by hand. i got the panel off near the motor and can feel the back of the motor, but i cant seem to understand this part..

Release wiper motor retaining clip, then slide clip back until it clears nib on crank pin, and remove the clip.

seems like it would be a pain the the butt if you cant see the clip that you have to remove.

please help me on this.......i refuse to drive my civic in the snow, expecially with all this salt on the roads.

if i dont do it myself by friday or saturday, i will take it to my brothers garage and have him help me.
