Default 96 Camry Windshield Wipers won't Stow

Hi, My Dad has a 96-4cyl Camry. The windshield wipers do not stow when you
cycle the switch into the off position. Also when you use the windshield
washer they just stop in the middle of the glass. I had a similar problem
with my Carola and all I had to do was change out the ww motor, but on the
Camry I can't even see the ww motor. Does anybody know what the problem
could be with the Camry? And if it is the ww motor how do I get to it?

Thanks!
Gene

====
Open the hood.
It is on the left side (US passenger) near the electrical wiring that
goes through the firewall, near the top. Mostly you'll see a round
black motor housing apx. 6' in length.

That is where it is located in the Carola but in the Camery all I can see is
firewall?

The Gen 3 USA cars had the wiper motor located on the passenger’s
side (your left when facing the firewall from engine side). It was
between the firewall and upper shock tower.

If not here, operate the motor and run down the location of the noise.
The motor has a cam and switch relay that is supposed to stop the motor
at the same location each time it is turned off. If this system is not
working, the motor will just stop and not cycle back to the stowed
position.
