Hi, I only need to know how to dismount the rear wiper motor. There is 5 bolts inside the back door, so to dismount this part is simple.

But by the outside of the door, after removing the wiper arm, there is a big nut holding the main shaft which turn with the motor mecanism when I try to unsrew it; so the question is : how to block the shaft so I can unscrew that nut and remove the wiper motor.
Do you
have the same problem?

Try using a battery terminal puller to remove the arm:

Thanks for your answer, but I am at a step after the wiper arm removal. I include a picture of the nut I am not able to unscew because it rotates with the motor mecanisim encapsulated behind the door. See the following picture please

I read poorly, my apologies. Try a pair of vise grips and a wrench. Get the grips on tight to make sure it doesn't spin.

The shaft is not turning with the bolt :-( , so it is not possible to hold anything usefully with a wise grip. The short treads, where the bolt is screwed on, is finished flush, just at the top surface of the bolt, so it have to be retained somewhere else. Have any idea?

Sorry for the poor robot french to english tranlation.

Hi gilprof,

There is supposed to be a locking tab at the door end, maybe it has been sheared off.

You need to try to stop the base from turning from behind the panel.
