in the e-box there should be 3 relays right up top in the front, the wiper relay is the tallest of the 3. Double check the wire colors going into the relay to be sure you have the correct 1. The colors should be.... brown/white brown/blue red/white black/brown black/green and 1 thats just solid brown.
Hope that helps.

Thanks guys. I solved it. The relay I described is indeed the wiper relay. I confirmed it by simply removing it and trying to operate the wipers and they wouldn't move.
Bought a new relay at the local BMW dealer, under $15. Plugged it in. All is now well because my wipers now fully retract once again as they should!
Also - completed changing out my leaky power steering hoses today. It was a fairly straightforward job. Bentley manual left me out in the cold regarding torque of bolt on the block the connects hoses to radiator. Using sizing chart (it's an M8) I figured it to be about 10-12ft-lb. and torqued accordingly. if it leaks I can always tighten it more later. Ahhhhhhh.......
