I have been away on a trip all week and returned to my frozen up car (1996
e34 520i SE Tourer).
Without thinking I attempted to operate the wipers they moved momentarily
but then stopped. I released them from the snow/ice but the seem to have
I've checked tow fuses in the engine bay fusebox (1 & 24 I think) and they
Is there any other fuses or reset button that needs looking at?
There's a small link arm connecting the motor to the RH wiper arm. This is
only a 'push fit' using nylon 'snap-caps'. These do wear and often just pop
off under load. They are only about a fiver to replace, but also get some of
the small plastic rivets to replace those holding black plastic cover-grill
below the windscreen as these are very brittle and often break.
Let me know if you need help with this job.

Thanks, I'll check it out tomorrow.
I cannot hear any motor sounds when the wipers are on so I'm tending to
think it's electrical at the moment. I've found on the web that there may be
a fuse number 34 under the rear seat so I'll check that out also tommorrow
Yes, there is indeed a fusebox under the rear seat. Tell you what, I'll
email you the Haynes manual. I think I've got a .zip file hereabouts.
Drop me an email with your addy.
