    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

    The spindle will have seized .

    Is it a W123 or a W124 ?

    Either way , still likely to be a seized spindle .
