BMW X5 With Wiper Problems.

Customer Question

2006 BMW X5 driver's wiper thumping and outer end sometimes angles up a little
I bought the car a week ago and had first rainstorm. Doesn't seem to be hitting anything. Owners manual says to use only BMW recommended blades. Current blade is 23.5 inches.
Do you recommend a winter blade for me?

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
It calls for a 24" blade for the driver's side. The thumping may just be due to damage to the blade itself or there could be a linkage issue. Can you elaborate on what you meant by 'sometimes angles up a little'?
Did you mean the blade itself doesn't stay in contact with the glass or do the arms go to or park in positions they should not?
