Taking a shot here with all of the car questions going on at the moment.

I have a Hyundai Santa Fe that has a bad windshield wiper motor and I was wanting to know how much I should expect to pay for:

part
labor



any help with this would be much appreciated because I'm trying to determine if its even worth the effort as its got 160,xxx miles on it

If you're sure it's the wiper motor and not a blown fuse or something, the part should cost 75-100 dollars. (autozone price) I'd expect it to run you 200-300 dollars total installed, unless you happen to know an honest mechanic. (such as Jason)

8 tenths of an hour, so they SHOULD charge you less than an hour or an hour tops times their labor rate

If you can't spell motor, you probably have no business working on one.
