I kinda know the answer to this, but is there a way to tell which 2000 sportage EX I have? I recently had to replace the rear wiper motor, and my research showed that a 1999 motor would fit a 2000. The one I bought from ebay said it would fit a 99, but when I went to put it in, it was not the right one at all. Now that I know what it looks like, the proper one goes from a late 98 to 2000, and the one I bought goes from about 95 to 99.

I need more parts, like a left-front window motor, and I don't want to make the same mistake. some say they fit a 2000 to 2002, but others go from 97 to 2000. Know what I mean? I haven't take the door panel apart to know what the part exactly looks like, but should I have to?

By the way, I have a working rear wiper motor for sale for a 95 to 05/98 sportage ;)

Cheers.

Wow,
I took the motor and bracket off a 2000 and put it on a 1996 with no problems.

Well, the 95-99 motor does not have a bracket, and the 99-00 needs one and has it built-on as part of its assembly. There didn't seem to be an easy way to attach it.
