View Full Version : 2000 740i wiper motor problems

Hi All,
I have (what I believe to be) a buggered wiper assembly. It will sweep up about 1/4 of the way then stops. It sounds like a plastic or nylon gear has stripped and makes a pile of noise until the system shuts off. Anyone have the info on how to remove and install the whole assembly?
Thanks in advance!

go to www.E38.org hit Ctrl+F and type in wiper.

There's nothing there unfortunately. I've taken the works apart myself, and am taking pics, so I can post a diy once I'm done. It's actually quite easy...

Are you on bimmerforums? I have seen a member post up the steps there. You might have some luck searching there
