CHEVY WINDSHIELD WIPER MOTOR STOPPED, HOW TO

2004 Chevrolet Cavalier

2004 Chevy Cavalier 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 80,000 miles

Driving down the highway with the wipers on pulse and my passenger wiper just quit. You can move it now by hand, as if the motor is no longer engaging the bolt that causes the arms to pivot. Is there a gear that could have slipped apart that I can fix or do I need an entirely new motor?

If a new motor, any idea how to get to it? I pulled the cover off the area by the firewall but it is only about 4" wide. Is there an easier way to access the motors? THANKS!
