it possible that something else is the culprit? this is on my '73 tii.

Pop the cover off the wiper relay and check the points inside. If they're stuck closed, it's probably the culprit and if you're lucky, you might be able to unstick the points and save the cost of another relay. If the points are good, I would begin to suspect the parking mechanism on the motor itself or perhaps the switch. There have been posts on repairing the parking mechanism. Check 'em out. 72/73 switches are known to have the two little wires that run up the switch shaft break where they flex. If that happens they can touch, and the wipers will run forever (until you pull the fuse or the relay, of course!)

Cheers and happy troubleshooting

I have two intermittent relays, but they won't work on my early '71 (different wiper system altogether). I'd part with both for a reasonable sum. Send me an email.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
