E46 Wiper Issues?
 
Any of u guys had issues with your wipers? Mine run fine but stop in the middle of the window - have to manually push them down - also the rain sensor doesent seem to work - is it the motor thats causing it to stop in the middle? Checked to make sure it wasnt hitting anything...looks fine

I had issues-- wiper tranny busted and the blades contacted, bonded together and Fd whateve remained of the system. All this in a blizzard on the 400. Cost an arm and a leg to replace, plus it chipped my windshield.

Do you mean stuck while the car is running or stuck when you shut the car off? If you shut the car off while they're running, they'll stop wherever they are. It's handy for when you expect icy rain.

^ Yeah so when the car is running and the wipers are on, they run properly from start to end, however as soon as I switch the wipers off, they park themselves in the middle of the windhshield...sort of at 11 O'Clock position. Have to manually push them out, or shut the car while they`re running close to the park position for them to actually park properly...its a real pain...especially when you need intermittent wipers...

Sounds like a failed park switch inside the wiper motor, quite common. The solution is to replace the wiper motor.

Mark.

Shoot.:(

Anyone know if its easy to change the wiper arm and motor? I looked around and can only get it together - as in cant get the motor solo.
