Question Windshield Wiper Loud Noise - 1996 328i

A few months ago I had noticed my wiper made a squeaking sounds as the wiper swept across the glass. From inside, it sounded like the rubber was squeaking against the glass.

Several weeks later, on a rainy day, the noise was much louder and after I change the blades, I noticed that the sound was actually coming from under the hood, perhaps the wiper motor itself.

Has anyone run into this?

try this, run the wipers with the arms up so they arent against the glass, if the sound remains than open the hood and see if you can pinpoint the sound to the motor.

Thanks! Didn't know I could run the wipers in that position. I'll check.

But I did put my ear close to the hood and it seems to be coming from underneath, around the center and right under where the windshield meets the hood. Problem is, I haven't checked to see where the wiper motor really is located.

By the way, what did you get?
