one wiper not working

Hello, I had a new starter installed at the dealer on my 2006 750, now i have the car back and the passenger side wiper is not working. Is there a fuse or is it possible that in replacing the starter something was disconnected? Thanks for all replies.

I don't know working on these cars too well, but I would bet that near the base of the wiper blade itself there is usually an adjuster nut that can come loose, or not tightened correctly.

pop the small plastic cap off and tighten the nut.

I agree with 1bad, tighten the nut its most likely come loose or completely come off, especially if one is working then your motor is fine.

Many thanks for the tip! My drivers side wiper was flapping about like crazy, read your tip here, tightened the nut and all is now well in 745-land.

Gotta love this forum!
