  1. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    2001 Z3 2.5i, Trying to troubleshoot my windshield wipers. They keep blowing fuses. Motor was working fine then all of sudden it started blowing fuses. Now every time I try and switch them on the 15A fuse blows.

    Hi everyone, I have a BMW X5 2004 E53 3.0 and when I use the windshield wipers when it's raining they are very noisy and don't glide smoothly. Its like they are getting stuck on the glass and become super noisy until there is a LOT of rain and have been working for a while, then they work...

    Hi all - new to this forum, but have been reading for years and you guys have saved me a ton of money. I don't know how many times I have 'suggested' to a mechanic to try something based on your advice here, and voila! It worked. Anyway, I have had an issue with my wipers for a couple of months...

    Its been raining for 3 days straight in my area from the hot weather, and ever since, my wipers would work after a while then stop in the middle of the windshield, and I would have to turn the car off and back on for it to work again.. Even so, when the wipers start to move it stutters two...

    Hi everybody, this is my first time posting. I've been a long time browser here on these boards but I'm still relatively new to working on my bmw that I bought a few months ago. Always been mechanically inclined. Anyways I digress. I am doing a write up on a problem that has been persisting...

    Hi, Two more questions from Turnip. 325 XI 2004. # 1 CD player no longer takes or ejects CD. Is it toast? Or is it repairable? # 2 Windshielp wipers in front of car hit hard by accumulated ice/snow from surprise storm and so no longer go all the way back down, they stay about a inch or...
  8. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    I have searched the forums and have not found a DIY thread for replacing windshield wipers on a 2006 750Li. I bought RainX replacement blades only to find out that my factory blades on the car did NOT look compatible at all with the RainX ones. There is a piece of Trim (I assume is for driving...

    Hey guys, just got an 01 525iT last week. The wipers work fine, except they won't wipe the top of the windshield on the driver's side. The blade isn't making contact with the top 6 or 7 inches of the glass. I've replaced the blade (not just the rubber, the whole thing) and it didn't make a...
  10. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hey all. I have an odd question about windshield wipers. In my 2009 E93 M3, if my foot is on the brake pedal when the wipers make a sweep, I can feel a pulse in my foot through the brake pedal every time. It is hard to describe, but it is very distinct when sitting at a stop with the wipers...

    I have a 2001 525it. When I turn on the windshield wipers they run but they then do not respond to any changes of the control. For example, they won't turn off. Then after a bit they stop in the middle of a sweep and do not park themselves. They then won't run at all until you turn the...
  12. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I have a 2000 540i that I bought used earlier this year. The rain sensing wipers have never worked for me. When I select the rain sensing setting, they just operate in an intermittent mode, regularly sweeping about every 7 or 8 seconds or so. The variable control does not change the frequency of...
