Good day, I have probably an usual question I have ADV windshield wiper system on my 92 535. Simply put it's a mechanism that applies more downward force to the wipers as the car speed up. My problem is that when I first start the car it emits aloud grinding approximately a minute or two after the car is started and makes the same noise when I shut the car off. Sounds like the mechanism is starting to fail.

Thanks for any info or if anyone else has had a problem with theirs.

You will probably need to remove the wiper console to see what is going on. You could just lock the mechanism or switch to a non ADV console.
