How do I find the wiper relay on my 1997 BMW 740il. I ordered a factory wiper relay .its Tan in color, I cant find it. I need help from a professional can you help me.
It's located inside the power distribution panel.
The power distribution panel on your car is located under the hood in the engine compartment. It is located on the right passenger side closest to the firewall.
When you open the cover to the PDP, you'll see a series of blade type fuses in the front compartment and a bunch of wire harnesses in the back- that's where you'll find the tan colored relay you need to replace.
I have attached a youtube video for you to watch because it appears that the most common cause of this relay failure is due to water build up in the PDP compartment which is causing serious wiring deterioration and rusting- not only to the wiper relay but to the other relay components in that block.
So should you be experiencing the same problem when you open the power distribution panel, you'll know what to do.
