Interestingly, both Genuine BMW and Vemo are made in Czech Republic. All the other brands I checked are made in China. I don’t think Vemo is the OE here, but I ordered it anyway just to see how close it is.

nsjames I appreciate the detailed suggestion there. I’ll admit I kinda missed the part where you acknowledge that you could just pull the fender liner, but would be better served by just yanking the fender itself. Having swapped a fender before (thanks to a nice little hit and run when my car was parked on street at night), I completely agree that it’s super straightforward and not at all bad.

e90yyc - I was in the exact same boat with my "new" E90 (just 2 weeks ago).

I was reluctant to use China's URO motor (highly prefer German or Japanese).
However, still end up getting one for $10 from Amazon.

It works great. When I took things apart, old motor was not spinning as it was completely clogged.

Before you put new motor & grommet in, take a garden hose and aim water stream into the washer tank through the pump opening and then let it drain. repeat multiple times until clean water start coming out.

I was very surprised how much dirt was there.
