Anyone know how to fix back windsheild wiper on '01 X5?

95

Asked by Feb 01, 2012 at 04:40 PM about the 2001 BMW X5 3.0i

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My back windsheild wiper blade does not sit tight against the window and does not
clean where I need to see thru.
This is a recurring problem.  Maybe going thru car wash?  It was fixed a few months
back and now it won't clean window again.  Frustrating.

most likely the wiper arm is bent so the wiper blade doesn't sit flat on the glass. I had this problem with my car. They replaced the wiper arm and all was fixed

ok, so I should buy a replacement arm, maybe used on line or should I get new? I really appreciate everyone taking time to help me out. LOVE the car. When you drive something as nice as a BMW, you want everything perfect!

BMW recycling centers are your best bet. Bavarian Auto Recycling in CA is a great place to start. Your local LKQ salvage yard should be next. Happy hunting.
