    My rear wiper stop working. It doesn't go up or down anymore, but it still shoots out wiper fluid. I check the fuse and it looked fine, I also slammed the rear glass like other posts suggested but no fix. Any suggestions? Thanks

    try pulling out the switch, and use a small jumper wire to bypass the switch, If the wiper works your problem is in the switch, if not the problem is most likely in the tailgate and you can check the wires back there after you pull the trim off.....

    Motor failure is a pretty common problem. I had mine replaced right before the warranty ran out. The motor runs $70-80 dollars new from Ford, or Autozone has a remanufactured one for $40.
