Does anyone know how I might fix this issue or why the fuse blows?

I tried to hot wire the motor direct from the battery but it won't turn...not sure if I have the right pins...
I'm having the same problem. Tried the relay repair, didn't work for me. Took wiper motor apart, cleaned grease off, reassembled, fuse #59 blows every single time even after disconnecting battery both + and - terminals for like 30 minutes. I have a 2003 and (as someone said earlier in the thread) the metal ring on the inside of my wiper motor doesn't look like the one in the picture either.
