Rear wiper not working

Postby pp320d » Sat, 05 Jan 2013 16:49:29 UTC

I have a 1 series 2007 reg, and the rear wiper has stopped working, it started to judder then stopped all together, I found the fuse board by looking in the service book, are BMW a joke?? it is hidden away behind the glove box how on earth is a mans big stubby hands meant to get in to it, I need a torch to even see it, I have tried to get access to the wiper motor but even after unscrewing the holding screws the cover does not want to come away, any ideas?

You could try to remove the base cover off the wiper to expose the shaft connection and wash off any build up of road dust and then apply some WD40 or other light penatrative lubricant and assist movement without over pressure. Hopefully you will not have blown the fuse and it will OK
I have just had to go through this with my Touring rear wiper and it worked for me HTH Vor

Check power supply and earth to motor is the first place to start. Have replaced these motors before for failing
