    Hi, I've two problems with my 92 SL and would really appreciate your advice.

    1 . Wipers only work on fastest speed, my guess needs wiper relay. Any ideas best source on sensibly priced unit as I'm on a budget - part number 001 542 79 19
    As some quotes I've had for a 20 year old used item are three figures !

    2. Head lamp flash does not work. High and low beam work fine, just not quick flash function


    Thanks in advance

    Jon

    plenty on ebay but most are currently from USA, but also look for people breaking w129 or if the same part on w140 (check with mercedes)

    Are you sure the wiper stalk isnt faulty? The headlamp flash is on the same unit.
