    REAR WINDSHIELD WIPER (died)

    Before I check out the archives I am wondering if anyone here has ran into this problem and what they found it to be.

    I checked all the fuses and they are fine. BUT I don't know if its one of those fuses or if its one of those relays in the fuse box. When I read the fuse listings there's nothing there naming the rear windshield wiper.

    I presume BMW used the Z3 roadster fuse panel and this would valid why theres no listing for it. I am just not up for tearing the car apart(yet). This car is treating better than any car I have ever owned and I am reluctant to start opening things up except under need of sheer necessity.
    The car is still very tight and I don't want to start loosing it up until I have no choice. I realize though it is starting to reach that age where I am, but I want to drag it out as long as possible.

    Possible broken wiring in hatch gooseneck (left)

    My wiper has quit twice in 6 years due to broken wiring that passes from the body to the hatch door on the left side. Open your hatch, wet the glass, turn wiper on and wiggle the goose neck. I could get mine to work intermitently that way. If it is the wiring then you'll have to pull the hatch trim and left side interior panels to gain enough space to work on the dozen or so wires packed in that area. I had a about 4 or 5 broken or frayed. I can send you a photo of the area in question if you send mr an email.

    Re: GOOSENECK

    This looks like a nice spot to test for electrical current... thanks for bringing to my attention. beats taking off the rear door panel(I think).

    The rubber boot is perfect and shows no sign of being injured. All I have to do is find an easy way of sliding that boot out of the way so I can stick a probe in each of the wires.

    The rear windshield waher pump still works, so there's power there. Just where is the rear windshield washer pump though...is it in the rear hatch door or not..

    The pump should have two nozzles. one squirts on the front windsheild and the other to the rear hatch windshield.
