Rear Wiper Motor

I have a '95 XJ that I am having trouble finding a replacement rear wiper motor. The Cardone reman has those cheesy tap splices instead of a new plug and I'd rather take my chances at a junk yard over having to re-wire a "new" part.

Has anyone found an alternative source for a new wiper motor? Is there somewhere I could find a walkthrough of how to rebuild mine?

Re: Rear Wiper Motor

Mine was moving VERY slowly and then just stopped, so I took it out and took the cover off and cleaned the gears and regreased them and now it works great. Short Youtube video (not mine) of how the gears work:

Do some googling "Cherokee rear wiper motor repair" and you should find lots of videos and write-ups. There is one that I used as a reference on taking the motor apart, but didn't bookmark it. Might have been this one or similar:
