Ok so it's snowing here in Canada and because my rear wiper doesn't work, I don't see that well. I still have my old SF in the driveway so I was wondering if I can swap the wiper motor from the SF into the SG5???

Thanks!

Grab a multimeter and make sure you have voltage at the wiper before replacing the motor. It is far more common for the wiring to break (it bends a bit every time you open/close the rear gate) than for the wiper motor to burn out.
