Recommended Posts

you have to remove the entire wiper assy...a tricky procedure...i don't know about the wiring differences but the motor is attached to the linkage assy...take off the wiper arms, remove the large chrome nuts and finagle it out, past the heater motor

Hi Esty

Is not only the motor sorry is the entire assembly, I need to swap, let me know if you did this before.

Thanks all ........... JCorrea

Well I got the wrong wiper assembly (this one has 5 wires), my has 4 wires and is a 1970. (switch have 3 position (off, slow, hi)

The first question remains, How to remove the entire assembly (motor & arms)??

And is possible to install the wiper assembly (5 wires) in my car? If yes how do I connect?

Thanks all ........... JCorrea

I just had to remove the motor assembly. I simply pulled out the motor by removing the 3 screws that hold it to the arm assembly, then one screw that keeps the shaft connected to the arms.. It is fairly easy, you may have to move the wipers manually to gain access to the screw in the back. When you install the new one, connect the motor,but not the wiper arms, turn it on, and turn it off, so you "locate" the motor resting position. Install the wiper arms near the bottom. but not totally since they go down a little when you turn the wipers on. Use a flashlight so you can see (this may not be obvious)

as far as the electrical stuff, I don't know.

The old one has 4 wires and the new one has 5, how can I install?

not so much with the easy.

The later motor works completely differently than the early one.

Your best bet would be to convert to later switches and wiring, too.

Search a long, long way back and there's a good write- up.

    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
