Wiper motor is in and working great! The clip that holds the wiper linkage arms came off and went back on pretty easy. Using a regular headed screwdriver to lift up the tab on the back of the clip sped things up. Only major headache was sliding the wiper linkage arms back on to the new motor. Don't bolt the wiper motor to the firewall until after you have put both linkage arms onto the motors rear pin. Another note: passenger side linkage goes on first then drivers side.
I agree with you Steve83, removing the cowl sucks, but I was actually able to slide the cowl forward and tilt up, without removing the lower w/s trim. Noticing that the cowl corners would hit the corners of the hood, I slapped some masking tape on them to protect the cowl. Couldn't remove the cowl this way, but there was enough room to attach the arm linkages and the clip.
Big thanks to everyone who helped!!!
