Hi All,
I have many questions about my 1983 BMW I want to know if anyone may have experienced with thiers.
She is 27 years old, so I am now making repairs that I've never had to make before, today I got her out of the shop after a week, she has new steering bar,tie rod ends, gas filters, and my gas hand no longer floats!
However, when I got her home, it started to rain, I turned on the wipers, and they wouldn't move!!!
Having trouble finding parts in my area of TN.
Anyone have a DYI tip for me on this issue!

Pop the hood. On the driver's side you'll find the fuse box. The fuses are the older ceramic 'pill' type. Corrosion will build up on the contacts so you must twirl/roll/twist EACH fuse periodically OR when some component fails to work, (ie: wipers, radio, heater blower fan...)

Of course, it could be the wiper motor is dead. More of a hassle.

Good luck!
