Has anyone tried the grand task of removing a mono wiper mechanism or
even the standard mechanism from an e30 m3.

I have undone the bolts but how this unit actually comes out is a mystery
to me.

Completely hit a brick wall.

HELP

How come you want to remove it? Have you tried s14.net I seem to remember a couple of installation guide that people had written for the bonrath kit maybe that would be of use. If wouldnt mind a mono wiper for mine so if your getting rid let me know.

As far as I remember you have to take the heater blower fan apart. You have to remove '1' from :-

http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts.do?model=1007&mospid=47 266&btnr=64_0480&hg=64&fg=15

you then have to remove '2' by undoing '8' in :-

http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts.do?model=1007&mospid=47 266&btnr=64_0514&hg=64&fg=15

This should then give you enough wiggle room to get it all out, it is a struggle though.

Sorry, but I can't really help here, because although I have had mine changed due to the driver-side knuckle being nackered so the wiper kept falling off, I got "my man" to do it.

It must have been a bit of a b as the bill was quite high!

Cats know your every thought.

But don't care.

Ac79xxx you are a star.

Having had another 2 hour go at it tonight I took another glance before I
left and thought that fan has got to come out otherwise there is not
enough room.

You have just confirmed my assumptions

No 8 was ok as I had the right tool for the job (makes a change)

Thanks to Steve C for the holding the torch so i could see what I was
doing

Now I am in the know I would have done things in a much different
order, but hey all worked out in the end - just need to install the new
mech now
