230TE, but mum had a new 230TE in 1984 (W123), (not the same one) mines a W124
I switched the lights on, and then the wipers, had my brother watch from the front. One side is working the other not, Are they just jammed, need to gove them a good seeing too. Or does it mean a fuse relay.

thanks

Headlight wipers on a 124 are wired up in line. I rather suspect the the passengers side wiper motor (just a guess on what side) has seized (search for a thread about servicing / repairing them). They are obtainable from Merc and ECP

Not always
The spindle will have seized .

Is it a W123 or a W124 ?

Either way , still likely to be a seized spindle .

I'll give it a go on the weekend, open them and grease them up.
