Rear Wiper Motor Replacement

The nut that holds the wiper arm on the shaft was easy to remove, but getting the arm off required a battery terminal puller because of corrosion.
The nut that holds the actual housing of the wiper motor from the outside(goes over the shaft) was severely corroded. Maybe I wouldn't have broken it if I had soaked it in penetrating oil for several days first.
Disconnect the electrical connector.
There are 3 bolts that hold a mounting plate to the rear hatch from the inside. Remove these bolts and take the motor off with the plate, then remove the motor from the plate by removing several screws.
If your car has been exposed to much salt I would try and soak the nuts on the outside quite a bit (several days) with penetrating oil first.
I bought a used motor on ebay or a junkyard should have one.

Then take the motor out from inside (from there, it's just a couple of mounting bolts you have to remove). You might want to make sure you're getting voltage to the motor before you replace it.
