I seem to have the exact same issue with wipers not working on my 98 E38. I removed the cover to the fuse/relay box and discovered a 1/4 inch of water at the bottom. I removed most of the water but I'm afraid there is still moisture and corrosion down there but it's impossible to see down there. I replaced both relays but wipers still don't work. Question - How exactly were you able to navigate such a small space to get to the small wire that had broken off of its connector to solder it back to the connector? Did you remove the fuse/relay box? Or are you Houdini? Any other repair advice is greatly appreciated.
