    Rear wiper blade

    The part number is 61627140960 and is there a specific type of aftermarket blade I can use?

    I installed a regular Bosch blade and one end is lifting and I think it is not seating correctly due to the shape of the metal rubbing against the end of the wiper arm.

    I've anecdotally that the e34 touring whole blade/holder assembly can be dropped in place. No actual evidence to support it though

      I was told the same thing by the owner of the beautiful briliantrot E30 Touring at the Vintage last weekend.

        if the e34 one doesn't work... we have genuine ones in stock, as well as the rear shocks for the rear.

          E34 ones suck! The end of the arm is plastic, gets brittle with age, and snaps off. I modified the one on my E34 to get rid of the plastic and use the plastic "adapter" that comes with wiper blades. Then just replace it with every new wiper.

            They do make rear specific wiper blades! The 16-E is a perfect fit.

                Tested the rear wiper in the rain last night and the blade is flat against the window! Works perfectly!

                  I have a spare arm coming in a box of used Touring parts from Europe. Assuming it's in decent shape, if anyone wants dibs, just let me know. Price will be fair.
