1977 Silvewrado Wiper Moter

Windshield wiper motor has stopped in a partial down position. Partial down meaning that it had started down when it "froze up"!! Changed wiper
switch, which has two-speeds plus washer reservoir "press for on" feature. Was hoping that old switch had bad contacts, but still won't move on either speed. I do see "smoke" furling upwards from the washer motor area when I press it in for the "squirts"!! My first problem is: How can I either "force" the mechanism arm to move into the full down position OR how can I remove the "nuts" that locks the endball of the wiper motor onto the main rod arm without "sawzalling" open the "cowling" above that connection????? Sorry that my first post to this group is so complicated!! I think I would rather be rebuilding the Edelbrock 650 on it, instead!!!!! Thank you for ANY info you can give me!!

Start by unplugging the shorted wiper motor before you have to ask if anyone wants to buy a mildly singed truck!!! Next remove the 3 screws holding the motor onto the firewall. You will have to do some fancy moves to get the arm through the hole, but it should go. Remove the nut holding the arm on and pry the arm off the motor without bending the arm. Some come off easier than others. Another option is to remove the cowl panel and remove the nut and arm and THEN the 3 bolts. Hopefully you didn't mess up your new switch trying to get the fried motor to go...
