Mein Auto: 1996 520i
which relay is for the wipers????/

I have a 1996 520i and want to change the wiper relay as i suspect this is the reason its not working as the washers still work.
I am however having trouble identifying the wiper relay,as when i search on the net for replacements the relay is brown or beige and as you can see from the pictures i have neither in my relay box.
If anyone can put me right that would be greatly appreciated.
many thanks

I haven't dealt with my wiper relay, but I can type /wiper relay f3, so that's what I did, and in the bestlinks, this comes up ...
- Troubleshooting or replacing the wiper motor (1) and replacing the wiper relay (1)

If I shorten that, to just /relay f3, this comes up:
- One user's attempt to locate, describe, and photograph all fuses and relays with a picture of every fuse & relay (1)
