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.

My front windscreen wipers on my BMW mini are not working - fuses are fine, back wiper and washers ok too. Just front wipers - is the likely problem a relay?

You actually have a wiper relay this should assist you swap with another see if functions
Service and Repair
The wipers are controlled by two relays, located in the engine compartment fuse box.
These are wired in such a way that one relay will run the wiper when energized, and stall it when de-energized (Front Wiper-Run/Park Relay).
The other will select either fast or slow speed on the wiper motor (Front Wiper-Fast/ Slow Relay).

BMW (E39)520SE 08/2001 Auto Touring. Rear wiper/washer has failed. I have located a replacement wiper motor but understand that 'the relay' is also prone to failure. I've still got the fuses to...

after making sure your fuses are ok, go in the trunk and behind the access cover where the battery is located. above the battery should be a fuse panel, which may be hidden under the insulation trim, there should be some fuses and relays there. the relay closest to the rear of the car is probably the relay you are looking for. you can try swapping it with another relay in the panel if the relays are the same. bmw always puts a part number on their relays. i would start with checking the fuses and relay first.
