Windshield Wiper Motor

Have an '86 Itsaca Sunflyer and wipers try to move but don't. Want to replace the wiper motor but it appears the whole dashboard has to be removed. Any ideas? Am I overlooking something to access the motor?

Not familiar with your MH chassis but have you checked carefully under the hood up against the firewall? Most wiper motors are located there. Track the wiper arms drive linkage and that will lead you to the motor.

You may not have to replace that motor. It may need to be cleaned and lubed like i had to do on the truck. It would barely move. After it does like new. You might have to remove the screws from the outside where the arms go on and then remove it from the back side of the dash. That is similar to mine.

I'm lost. I've gone to look for me. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

If you have not removed the wiper motor yet I can tell you how I got my wiper motor out of a '73 Winnebago.
I cut a hole above the radiator into the area by the wiper motor.
This let me get to the bolts and remove it. Removing the glove box and radio gave me more room too.
My motor had the plastic brush holder melt, and I was able to replace the brush holder and clean it up. Works great now.
Let me know if you need any more info. Les
