Mein Auto: 2006 4.8i X5
2006 X5 4.8i rear wiper motor

Hi, this is my 1st post so I hope I'm doing this correctly.

My rear wiper motor makes an awful buzzing/grinding sound & doesn't move.

Does anyone know if the rear wiper motor (if that's the problem) can be replaced easily?

Yes, they can be replaced easily. If you want to do it yourself, try finding a you tube video or get a Bentley manual. To get a BMW mechanic to do it should cost no more than $300AU, including parts.
