I need help with my E39 wiper. I was driving along in the rain, when
suddenly the passenger side wiper on the windshield stopped completing
its cycle. In fact it only moved up about 3inches then stops so the
driver side one which seems to be working fine smacks into it
In order to complete my journey safely, I stopped and removed the blade
from the passenger side wiper to allow the driver side wiper which is
working perfectly fine to move without being hindered.
I'm now confused as to what would cause the problem. I've read the
boards and there is all the stuff about relays or motors, but everyone
seems to have a problem with both failing. Mine seems like only 1 is
not working, and when I engage the wipers, I hear a little thud which I
think is the passenger side wiper trying but failing to move.
Anyone got any ideas about what would be causing this problem..How many
wiper motors does the E39 have in its windshield, how do you access it
to change/check it. I suspect 1, but maybe I'm wrong. Anyone with
answers or suggestions please post.
To recap, I've got my passenger side wiper on the windshield not
working, it seems to judder when the driver side one moves ok. Help
