I previously owned a 400hp BMW...
My 1984 190e has an annoying problem, all of my windows stopped working yesterday. Fuses seem fine so a bit of research suggests I should change the "silver" relay that controls power to the windows. So, I got a new relay, got a spurious parts one for a local parts supplier as MB dealership said...

So if I want to clean my newly acquired 190 how do I lift the single wiper? Will it just simply stand up to the 90 degree position like coventional wipers do from the base, or is there a certain way to move the wiper off of the windscreen?
