  1. E63 Automatic Wipers

    BMW 6 Series - Tech Talk E24,E63,E64,F12,F13
    Hi, This is for a e63 from 2004. I find the wipers allow too much rain to collect before activating. I've attached a pic of the stalk, manual and what I believe to be the rain sensor. I'm not sure if the tab should be down as in the pic to give more wipes or up. If someone could advise...

    Driving today in heavy rain with wipers on, the drivers-side wiper suddenly moved position so it hits windscreen post and when parked it sits about 2" above bonnet. Passenger wiper remains in correct position. Wipers still work - at first I thought wiper had become loose but seems firmly on...

  13. E90 Michelin stealth wipers

    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Might be of use to someone. I got a pair of Michelin Stealth hybrid wipers which are very good but you cannot refit the arm trim so they end up looking a bit unsightly. Solution: cut the trim pieces with a junior hacksaw to the full width required, file them square to the depth of the original...

    General BMW Discussions
    I bought some new wipers a couple of weeks ago (Bosch AeroTwin AM980S). The old wipers seemed ok, but just wanted a fresh pair after I bought the car. When testing on a dry windscreen they appeared fine. We've had a bit of rain today and its the first time I've really needed to use the wipers...

    So I've read an awful lot here and other places in the last few days on this. I disconnected the battery to see if it might clear the DSC, handbrake and tyre pressure warning lights that appeared the other day (which had worked before) only to discover that my electric windows, wipers, central...

  19. Farty wipers

    General BMW Discussions
    Hi folks, Every time the wipers go round on my beamer they're making an annoying farting sound. I've checked over them and there is no deterioration in the rubber, they look spot on. Yet I can see that they judder against the window in the bottom corner when they go up. The automatic sensor...

    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    OK, I'm sure this has been done to death but i've tried using Rain-X and it doesn't work. I still can't see out the back. Anyone got any ideas? It's one of only 2 things that annoys me about the car (the other is non-sync of the aircon temperatures).
