I posted this in Gen Tech but got no replies.

My sons '79 CJ has a steering column with a turn/wiper/dimmer swith on the column, not intermitent, just off hi lo and a spring returned Mist tab. The column does not tilt. Turn and dimmer works. I know the column is not original. Not much on the Jeep is. Anyway, the wipers don't work. The turn/wiper/dimmer switch is loose and sloppy, you have to hold it down to turn on the left signal. But it does work for turn and dimmer.

I lowered the windshield and took the wiper motor off and the back plate off and with a circuit tester it reads that it's getting power through the black wire. Even to the contact arms underneath that back plate. So

How do I make sure it's the motor that's the problem before I get a new

What's involved in swapping out that column switch?
