1989 yj windshield wiper linkage?

5351 4
I just purchased my first jeep ever and when I got it the wipers worked normal. With scope he exception of the windshield clean function but not worried about that at the moment. What is going on is that it seems that the switch on the steering column works fine cause I can hear the motor running when I turn on the wipers. But the wipers don't move. Was driving down interstate yesterday and noticed that they were not working and actually started to flip back in the wrong direction without them on. So it seems there is a linkage problem and I need to get it fixed fast cause there is a snow storm coming. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I know it is mounted in windshield assembly but any tricks to get them working without having to disassemble the dash and windshield?

Im not sure but you could probably use that diagram as a reference from cj5's through the yj's. Not sure about tj's though. Thats the one I used when I switched out my windshield frame. Some of my plastic bits were brittle and i broke them so be careful.
