Neither of these work. I know where I can get replacement motors for the rear wipers. How hard is it to replace these? Have already checked fuses. Will check wiring next. Any info. on replacing these will be appreciated

James, It is most likely the wiring that passes thru the hinges. I've pulled tailgate wiper motors that were filthy, grimy, having been in an old wreck for 10 years and they worked like a charm! The wires break with alarming regularity and have been the bane of many a Volvonian.

The motor is also no fun to disconnect and replace, the linkage is worse than an old MG carb. set up! Try the continuity test between the motor and the wiring connector under the headliner at rear corners, if no joy then it is the wiring.
