98 740i - Wiper motor location

Hey everyone,

Quick, hopefully easy, question. Where is the wiper motor located in a 98 740i? Still having the classic wiper-not-functioning issue. We've replaced the fuses and relays. Wanted to test the motor next but I'll be damned if I know where it is. Thanks!

If you're not familiar with the part database...here's a link and a diagram....the wiper motor is #2 in the diagram below...and you can see how it is located by following the line for the bolts (#4 in diagram) that secures the motor below the cowl/console (#1 in diagram below):
