The front wipers of my 1998 BMW 528i are not working


Hi angel,

I would recommend first starting with checking the fuse. The fuse for the wipers is located in the glove box. If the fuse checks out ok, I would recommend checking the wiper relay.You will need to remove the passenger microfilter cover under the hood. First remove the filter cover. Then release the tabs holding the delivery tube to the filter housing. The housing lifts up and rotates out out to the side. Under the housing you will find a white plastic cover being held in place with 4 allen bolts. Using a 5mm allen remove the bolts. Once removed, under the cover you will see several control units and fuses and relays. Look for the BROWN relay. That relay is for your wiper/washer system. They do fail after a while. When reassembling the cover. make sure it is seated correctly, if not water can enter the electronics and create problems down the road.

Where is the windshield wiper motor and wher do I get a new one.


The wiper motor is located in the wiper module under the front cowl cover. You can get one at pretty much any parts retailer that you choose. (AutoZone, CarQuest, Napa, O'Reilly's, Etc.) Your question also brings me to the conclusion that you don't even know for sure that you need a wiper motor. If you do not know where it is, there is no way possible that you could have properly diagnosed the reason that your wipers are not working. How do you know that the problem is not being caused by your multifunction switch or wiper relay? Replacing parts without diagnosing the system can be EXPENSIVE!!!

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).

Rear wiper does not work at all. front wipers work fine. rear washer works


1. check the fuse to the rear wiper motor
2. check for power to rear wiper motor at the motor (power wire going in to the wiper motor with rear wiper switch on)
If you have good fuses & have power going in to the rear wiper motor...
3. Pull old rear wiper motor and install a new rear wiper motor.
Thank you please drive thru......

Front wipers stopped working but you can hear the motor run also


If the wipers were buried under snow/ice or frozen to the windshield, you may have blown the red 10 amp fuse located in cavity 9 in the fuse block located on the bottom left side of the instrument panel near the parking brake pedal.
In order of easiest to check:
1) ensure wipers not frozen to windshield.
2) ensure wiper arms are not loose on the pivot stud,
3) check the red 10 amp fuse.
You stated that "you can hear the motor". Which motor do you hear? The engine or the wiper motor?
If you hear the wiper motor, then the fuse is alright. Try 1) and 2) above.

Windshield wipers


most of these windshield wiper motors are located right below the windsheld and above hood. you probably have to undo the louvers where the windshield wiper arms are located and it sits in front of the driver side not too bad to swap yourself part itself is about $60 w/old motor turned in
