E350 coupe
Been away for a few years but have another MB now so i'm back.

Picked up a very tidy E350 coupe at a reasonable price. However, couple of issues so i would be grateful if someone could tell me where best to post them?

Would like some help with:
  • the passenger windscreen wiper which only works sporadically
  • main beam comes on when i flash but not when i push the lever forward
Guessing the second point is electrical but not sure about the wiper issue; although both could be electrical as the passenger wiper does work...just not all the time.

I'm retired and don't want/have the money to put it into a dealership to have problems rectified so i would be grateful for any guidance.
 
Could the car have auto lights in which the main beam only activates at a certain speed? Try switching to manual dipped lights then try the main beam switch. Ignore me if you've tried this already.

Well that is that problem solved! Thanks so much @ToeKnee

Feel a bit stupid now LOL. I had the lights on Auto so just changed them to "on" and the problem is solved.

yeah, feel really silly now

Thanks again mate
