The wiper motor is located under the hood on the very top of the firewall, driver's side. As for manual gear oil, 80-90W oil should do the trick.

Yep, what Dennis said :D

Can I hijack this thread???? I've got a third "where-is-it" question for a wagon.....

Where's the switch for the tailgate light? When you open the tailgate, the interior light comes on. I've searched the door, the sill, the jambs, the slide bumpers, the hinges, the latch, everything. I've poked and pulled and pushed on anything and everything I can find back there, and I can't make the light go off manually.

On each side door, the rubber-covered contact switch is obvious. No such contraption on the tailgate!!!!

Where's the switch????

I think there are little plates on each side of the tailgate opening (close to the upper corner of the taillights) they should slide up and down a bit... (down when the gate is closed) I think if you push them BOTH down the lights should go off.

Yeh, I've done that, a hundred times, both at once. Still no effect.

By the way, the light's working properly, it doesn't need fixing. It's just one of those things that I wanta know how it works so I can pounce on it when it eventually breaks.....

When opening the tailgate, it's the first 1/2 inch of travel that operates the switch, so even if it's the slide bumpers, it's probably a hair-trigger thing that I'm missing.
