    Hi guys,

    Hope all is well with everyone!

    Quick question: My wiper is stuck at 45 ° - I seem to remember this is a common problem with W202 single wipers where the teeth wear away meaning the wiper doesn't park properly

    Does anyone know what the replacement part(s) needed are as I am being told there is no pattern part and the MB one costs around £400...

    many thanks in advance

    Bobby

    Mine jumped a few teeth randomly once. I stripped it down, realigned it and it was fine. My point being that it is fully serviceable so I would take it out, strip it and get replacement parts from a breakers if you don't want to pay for a new one.

    Thanks, but the garage did that and said "it's knackered"! Anyone got the relevant MB part numbers??

    There is a pattern part available as I have one. There are 2 types of connectors blocks though, check to see what shape yours is. I can't remember offhand which is which. I bought a brand new motor from MB in 2008 and it was £250 then, so prices have gone up significantly.

    Hi, the wiper motor went dead in my car too!. I rang gsf and got a pattern motor for £88 . Then made sure everything was greased up well before refit esp mechanism
