Re: [DML] Wiper motor replacement AAAAGGGHH

The dread washer-bucket rivnut thing hasn't come up on the list for  
awhile, so it is a good time for a reminder:

If you are removing these bolts for the first time, it is a very good  
idea to spray a lot of penetrating oil up there before you even try  
to loosen them.  Given the consequences of failure, I recommend  
spraying repeatedly for several days before proceeding.  Once they've  
been off, you are unlikely to have problems in the future, but you  
only get one shot at a first removal, so take it easy.

If this advice is too late for you, I wonder if maybe some kind of in- 
line pump installed upstream (like under the dash) might be an  
alternative.   Just a thought....
