  2. Weird wiper problem

    E46 Xi Forum
    Hi guys, I've already done some searching but I didn't see anything that directly portrayed to my problem. I have a 2002 330xi, and I recently put new OEM wiper blades on it. For some reason now the wipers will go about 1/5 of the way up the windshield and stop. They will stay in this position...

  4. Wipers sometimes stop working!

    General E46 Forum
    This is occasionally annoying, but several times over the last 2-3 years, my wipers will just stop working. It seems that it happens in intermittent mode. They just go back down as if I've turned them off. Eventually they will come back on, but in the mean time I'll try to turn them on and...

  6. Electrical Problem, HELP!!!

    General E46 Forum
    Gentlemen, I have a 2002 330Ci w/155k miles on it; the other day the rain sensor mode on the wipers stopped working (move stalk up, turned knob, nothing). A day passed, then they worked, then they didn't. Then a very weird thing happened. I opened my trunk to put something in it, closed it...
  7. Windshield Wipers Clicking

    General E46 Forum
    After being on for a while my driver's side starts clicking when it hits the corner of the windshield. Does anybody know what is causing this? The blades are only a few months old and it doesn't rain very much where I livs. I really need some help.
  8. REVEIW: BMW Evo Flat Blade Wipers

    General E46 Forum
    One thing that doesn't seem to get much attention is windshield wipers. Now, while this is a very cheap and easy item to maintain, it is crucial that your windshield wipers do their job. How are you supposed to drive if you can't see? Last year when I got my car, the original OEM metal frames...
  9. Exterior Light Problem causing windows to go down

    General E46 Forum
    Just recently whenever i turn my headlights from the off to the on position, my driver window rolls down about an inch and my wipers go off.

  10. Need help with windshield seal

    General E46 Forum
    I have tried to search this, but I don't really know what to search. I don't know what this part is called, so that's what I need help with. Here's my description... It's the grey piece of plastic that is underneath the wiper arms. It seals the bottom of the windshield, and drains the water...
  11. Has anyone fitted "Aero" style windscreen wipers?

    African Continent / South Africa
    I saw the Aero style wipers on RealOEM, but my stealership does not stock them. Has anyone fitted them and what do I have to do to fit them? I know that DieselElectric sell the Bosch type, but don't know if they will fit on my car....:tsk:
  12. Disconnecting the Rain Sensor

    General E46 Forum
    My wiper rain sensor is woefully ineffective. I'm not sure if it's the type of misty rain that we get in Vancouver, but I regularly find myself shouting "wipe, dammit!" at my windscreen. (Yes, I've made sure that the sensor is clear of grime.) I've read on this forum that you can simply...
