How can I repair the BMW windshield wipers switch?


Answer by  NateB (571)

First check the fuse and relay, they might have blown and that's your problem, not the switch. If it is the switch then there's no repairing it. You'll have to replace it with a new one and if it's on the steering column then the replacement part is the whole piece, the switch, arm, and chunk in the column.

If the switch is bad, it will need to be replaced. You won't be able to repair it. So buy a new switch and install it, rather than repairing the old one. When a switch is bad, it has to be replaced.


Answer by  Grag (452)

It is more likely to be a fuse rather than the switch.If it is not the fuse check to make sure that it isn't the windshield wiper control mechanisium or motor. The object I am talking about is under a cover where your windshield wiper arms attach to the car.If it is not any of those then replace the switch.

First, take the cover off that goes around the wiper switch. Once you're in there just unbolt the old switch and unplug the wires. The installation is the removal reversed.

the switch probably needs to be replaced. it is cheaper to replace the switch than to repair it since it is electrical.

This is a faily simple task to accomplish. You will need to purchase a new or used switch online or from your dealer. Then you will replace by yourself.
