Mein Auto: 2003 330xi
Exclamation Two Windshield Washer Pumps!

Hey All,
A big heads up - my 2003 330xi has two washer pumps. Even though my car DOES NOT have headlight washers it does have the bigger headlight washer pump installed anyway!!

I didn't know this, thinking here's the pump - so I pulled it and replaced it - and it still didn't work. I should've done this first but I put a volt meter to the connection and nothing. Why would BMW install a headlight washer pump if there's not one? Easier to upgrade or add an option I suspect...

I thought maybe a fuse was out but couldn't find a broken one. Scratching my head for a few days and I took a closer look and found the other smaller pump hidden behind the reservoir!!!

So beware, I even bought the autozone one recommended and took it back because it was way too small.

So heads up on me being a bone head, hope it dosen't happen to you!

By the way here's a link for the exact fit one on ebay for $9.99 including shipping!!!!
