About Windscreen Scuttle Panels
The BMW windscreen scuttle panel is a panel which sits between the windscreen and bonnet, where the windscreen wipers are mounted. The scuttle panel serves to protect the components housed beneath while providing a streamlined appearance.
The wiper motor and linkage mechanism is located beneath the bonnet and is generally concealed by the scuttle panel. The wiper arms are normally bolted or attached to the linkage on studs or splines that protrude through the scuttle panel. The scuttle panel can also conceal other components such as the pollen filter in some cars. The scuttle panel prevents unwanted items of debris, such as mud, leaves and sticks from reaching the engine compartment and some scuttle panels house air vents which help to ventilate the engine compartment. The scuttle panel also serves to drain the excess water from the windscreen.
The windscreen scuttle panel is essentially a large, functional piece of trim that's contoured to line the foot of the windscreen, providing a sleek and tidy appearance to the exterior of the car. The scuttle panel is often made of plastic but chrome is a popular choice for some car manufacturers.
Apart from affecting the cosmetic appearance of the car, a broken windscreen scuttle panel, if badly damaged, could let water into the car and other unwanted debris could find it's way into the engine compartment. Replacing this part with the BMW scuttle panel will ensure you get the right part that's completely compatible with the make and model of your vehicle.
- The BMW 3.0CSL was sold in the 70s and had the unusual addition of a spoiler that was kept in the boot. The owner could install it if they wanted to, but BMW couldn't sell the car with the spoiler attached because of road laws!
- Electric cars might be all the rage now, but BMW built their first one in 1972 and called it the BMW 1602e. It didn't quite make it to market though, thanks to the fact that it could only hold a twenty-minute charge.
- The BMW company was founded way back in 1916 and originally manufactured engines for planes. High demand for plane engines during WWI was good news for BMW, but they carried on making plane engines right up until 1945.
- That distinctive BMW car engine sound that new owners fall in love with might not be real. The BMW M5 has such a quiet engine that they had to install fake engine noises to keep drivers happy!
- Think you know what BMW is an acronym of? If you answered Broke My Wallet, you’re definitely wrong. It really stands for Bayerische Motoren Werke (which is Bavarian Motor Works in English).
