Ken - was that the motor bearings or the support bearings for the linkage assembly? If the linkage assembly...what symptoms did you have the made you replace the bearings?


90 535iM Sharked

Hello Wilson,

I replaced on of the bearings in the wiper motor on my '89 535i. It was quite a job. I had to remove the water reservoir, the panel from the firewall, the a/c blower unit, and the wiper bracket assembly. Get a copy of the Bentley service manual or the BMW service manual to see a step by step procedure for removing and reinstalling the pieces.

Good Luck,

Has anyone replaced a wiper motor assembly and was it difficult? Any tips?
