    Hello people,
    I have a problem with the wipers on a BMW E46 318i Automatic 1999.
    Fault;- No wiper function at all, with intermittent washer function.

    In the fuse box there is no dedicated fuse for the wipers, only for the washer side of things and they are all ok.
    There is a sensor in the back of the rear veiw mirror, so I would presume that this is a rain sensor, the owners hand book tells you to turn off the rain sensor if you go in to a car wash, but does not tell you how!!

    So before I start pulling things to bits, does anyone have first hand knowledge of this problem, who may be able to save me time and money?

    Many thanks for any help

    Paul.

    First off have you looked in your owners manual? to get "off" position for the Auto wipers you simply pull the wiper stalk so it's not on Auto
