Windscreen Wiper Judder
I am slowly fixing all the faults on my 1991 M5 - the gear box doesn't leak any more, fourth gear doesn't stick at all, my wheels are beautifully balanced and concentric, I've put back the original mirrors and steering wheel (but for some reason the horn has now stopped working!)etc.....but I cannot seem to eliminate the driver's wiper judder.
Unless the windscreen is really wet, the wiper 'bounces' across the 'screen, a real pain. At first, having had it adjusted as best as possible at the garage, I thought it might be juddering because the windscreen was 'worn' where previously, the actual arm had scraped across the windscreen. So, I got a new windscreen. What a waste of money, the wiper still judders exactly as before!!
Given that the garage were unable last time to fix this problem, should I try to fit a new arm? Will the driver's arm from any E34 fit, or must it be from an M5?
Any one else ever had this problem? Is adjusting the arm as big a pain as I am making out?
