Here you go:

Service Information December 2000
General Electrical Systems 61 15 00 Service Engineering

SUBJECT
Washer Fluid Bleeds out of Rear Washer Nozzle

MODEL
Z3 coupe

SITUATION
Some Z3 coupe owners may complain of the washer fluid leaking out of the rear window arm and running onto the paintwork. Another possible complaint is that it takes too long to get washer fluid pumped up to the nozzle when using the rear window washer.

CAUSE
There is a low pressure area created in the rear of the car as it is driven, which can draw the washer fluid out of the rear washer supply line.

CORRECTION
IN CASE OF CUSTOMER COMPLAINT, a check valve, part number 61 68 8 391 402, can be installed in the supply line of the motor to hold the fluid in the line.

WARRANTY INFORMATION
Covered under the terms of the BMW New Vehicle Limited Warranty.

Just so you know - thats the post I printed and gave to the dealer, and thats the part they ordered.

they still maintain it's wrong and they had to do a manual fix.

yep, me as well.

They knew absolutely nothing about the fault until I emailed them with that though.

Just picked up the above mentioned valve from a local BMW dealer and have fitted it - seems to have cured the fault, great. However....

whilst I had the tailgate trim off I decided to inspect the wiper motor, which had been working on and off...it's at the end of its life due to corrosion.

Exactly the same fault occurred on the Golf I used to have; why on earth some manufactures decide to post the nozzle through the motor is an error the slightest bit of leaking and then subsequently a corroded motor mechanism!

Does anyone know of anywhere that will be able to refurbish the motor or is it better to get a new one altogether?

- I'm not keen to go down the Ebay route for a secondhand item.

Cheers

dont forget you get 10% off for being a BMW Car Club member (they dont check from my experience!) or you could try BMMINIPARTS.COM who supply new bmw parts normally cheaper than dealers.
