I got the exact same car with 155,000 miles and only paid $1000 less than his asking price. It now has 190,000 and needed nothing but standard maintainnece. I think the price is a little high.

If tightening that bolt doesn't help it, pull the arm off and check if it got stripped before worrying about the mechanism.

I've got an E36 also, and it's just as big of a pain as my E30. I wouldn't necessarily go there just for better reliability.

there's a F.A.G. factory where they make those here in Missouri close to Joplin. Not that this pertains to the question at hand.

I had a screw come lose that ended up stripping the wiper arm. You could take off the arm that doesn't work and turn on your wiper's to see if the linkage is turning.

Thanks for backing me up Phantom. I thought about trying to siphon from the dipstick since that goes directly to the pan. I just don't know anyone around here to trust with tapping.

Climate Control Fix
