Bayerische Motoren Werke AG, more commonly known as BMW, has made automobiles since 1916. The cars they make, besides the racing vehicles, are coupes and sedans. The windshield washer system requires the pump to force the solvent through the system and out the nozzles, spraying the windshield for the wipers to clean more easily. The washer pump is located on the windshield-washer reservoir, which resides in front of the front passenger-side wheel well. Fortunately, getting to this location and replacing the washer pump is a straightforward process.
