If the wiring is different i would suggest that you do not use it.Considering the wiring is not the same tells me they will not interchange.U need to find a unit that has the same build date.Call your local salvage yard and they will tell you what will interchange.

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.

I need to change the oil on my 94 BMW 740IL. How do I do this? Do I need special tools?


Changing oil in the BMW 740iL is no different than other cars. If you are not comfortable with this find a trusted German Automotive mechanic to do it for you.
You will need a large socket to remove the oil filter housing cover. The BMW tool is expensive. You can use large channel lock pliers with a smooth jaw or place a small strip of cardboard (like cereal box) over the teeth on regular pliers so you don't damage the cover.

1998 bmw 740il blower motor where is it


The blower motors on this vehicle lis located underneath the dash. The upper half of the dashboard is removable and entails removing the spedometer cluster. The airbag also needs to be removed to get to some usually white triangular looking nuts that hold the wooden trim above the glovebox. Removal of the front side panels to the left and right of the windsheild is also required. If this helps; the blower motor is located right below the large center vent in the center of the dash.

1998 bmw 740il will not start even with new a battery


If you checked all the fuses try putting the car in neutral sometimes the shifter gets misadjusted and wont start till the car is completely in park.If not check for a lose wire to the starter.If the car has an after market alarm you will have to turn it off before starting there should be a little buuton under the drivers dash or kick panel.GOOD LUCK
