89 260E - Wiper Motor keeps blowing fuses.

Wife's 89 260E keeps blowing fuses. She took it to the STEAL-ER-SHIP. Told her "Needs Motor, Linkage, Transmission replaced".....$1600.00. She told 'em to pound salt!!!
I will probably replace the motor myself. How tough of a job is it?
Any help would be greatly appricated.
Thank
Popeye

This is the single wiper, right? If the motor still turns, it is likely good. Try to lublicate the transmission, especially the wiper "hub", the big plate about the hand size. You need to remove the wiper arm cover near the hub. Loose the bolt with hex key. Remove the arm, then the hub cover can be removed.
