The washer fluid motor should cause no problems on the wipers since it is a separate line and has no link to the wiper motor. It’s a timer thing when engaging the wash. Some will spray when you push the wash and some are the type you hold for the amount wash you need.
Most of those replacement motors have the same 12V power input and those replacement reservoirs should accept the original motors with a possible adapter for installation.

Not sure if you have a 98 Jeep Wrangler. The reservoir cheapest link I found.
Carparts.com w/motors $40
extremeterrain.com  no motors - reservoir only $28





Not really because he wouldn't even do it for me. No one makes this part anymore. Sometimes you can get a used tank on Etsy
but they're expensive and don't work most of the time. They get snatched up in a heartbeat so you really can't even find one.
It's definitely a pick and pull and luck job. But at least I can still get the door part new from an aftermarket shop.

The problem with an old tank such as yours, living under the hood after all these years, it's likely dead/ brittle from heat.
I'd suggest getting a new one instead of trying to repair the one you have.

You can get repair kits on amazon for tanks and  reservoirs which specifically include windshield wiper tanks but I haven't been able to get the damn thing out to see how big the leak is
or what kind of hole is it,,, a split in a seam or a small crack or what... I think they are just small resin/fiberglass kits and work fairly well.
Also, they sell universal replacement tanks but the mechanic said he wouldn't use them because they mess up the wiring to the windshield wiper controls. Plus they only hold like a couple pints. I bought one and they are TINY! A handy guy could fix it easy so much these days.

 I need to go to a junkyard soon for some parts and I'll check out the Jeep department for you.
You should know that just about any res will work but some have the pump integral to the res body and some are mounted on inner fender or somewhere. You might be able to rig it up until you find the correct one and ride off into the apocalypse with a clear view like a boss...

Sorry, I didn't see those. 
No, not all all like either. It's a flat piece of metal, well, two actually - joined and articulated in the middle with one end attached to the door and t'other to the frame.
It doesn't look like the ones I've seen on older cars in the past. I should have taken a pic of the the remaining one. I think I'll call the garage (not the same one) and
ask if they can repair it. I've been looking for a windshield fluid container for 6 months and no luck. Even the mechanic couldn't find one.  This is the last car I'll ever own
so I like to keep it in decent shape. Not being able to clean my windows really bugs me every time I drive it.

If you're talking about the thing the guy is trying to cut through at the 3.24 mark, that is not what keeps you door closed.  It only slows the door down while opening or saves the hinges when a gust of wind catches it when you open it.

What keeps the door closed is the top item in the 2 pics that OV posted.  I had to replace 3 of the 4 on my old 2006 Ford Focus, now long gone.

The link that Kurt posted below is where you need to go to find one.

.In the mean time, try shooting some penetrating oil into it.  The parts can get stuck.  Stick a screw driver in there and see it you can work the release loose and get the locking mechanism to close.  Takes some fidgeting but isn't too hard to do.  If you can get it to move, you have a chance and if you can get it closed and holding, keep the door closed and use the other door to get in and out while you hunt down the part. 
.
Oh, and shoot some oil into the working door while you are at it.

One more possibility is that the exterior door opener can get stuck open.  My 2004 Civic has this problem on the passenger door from lack of use.  It is one of those that you lift up to open.  I simply push it back down and the latch holds.  A stuck button in that type of door opener can cause the same problem.   More than likely being 30 years old it is simply worn out and needs replacing.  Fortunately Jeeps still get restored all the time and there seems to be a big enough market for these parts for someone to still make them.

I don't think there are any pick and pulls around here, maybe there is, but this whole town is a junkyard anyway so there's that...

Send pics; lots of salvage yards hereabouts. Maybe I can scrounge one for you.
