The instructions are fairly straight forward. They read pull off. Of course the wrter did not envision the job being performed 21 years after the car was built. I would suggest a piece of cardboard between the arm and the glass then pull and twist until it comes free. Your dealer can perform this minor miracle for about 50 plus parts. The set screw is the only device holding it on. The burr from the
You might find this a little helpful. They recommend a screw driver to ease the process of removal. httpwww.mercedesshop.comWikkaW124BlowerMotor
Great step by step I also found you can leave the arm assembled and pull up on the covers at the bottom of the windshield the hood weatherstrip needs to come off the rubber cover around the wiper arm are Phillips screws remove all of the 10 mm bolts holding the mounting bracketssome are up there against the fire wall the arm also needs to be unhooked behind the fuse box and you can leave the motor

Every time I change the wiper blade I lubricate the wiper arm with a little WD-40. Never has my wiper arm been stuck in the upright position before.

There is a locking mechanism that help prevent the unloaded arm from springing down and smashing the windshield. Its a good stuck but I didnt know it till I couldnt figure out how to unstuck mine.

I think you will need to get a whole control assembly except for the (motor and wiper arm of course) the bit that has been damaged is where the control arm balljoint fits into the assembly. The hollow that the balljoint drops into will have been distorted so its now loose and flailing around. httpbody.articles.monowiper Mike.
Its only available as a complete linkagegearbox combined. So if any part goes its pretty expensive. There is also a nylon gear (that makes the wiper move up and down in its sweep) inside the gearbox that can slip on its shaft (interference fit.) When this fails it smashes all the window trims to bits normally knocks the rubber off the blade so on its return sweep scratches the window. As soon as mine
When this fails it smashes all the window trims to bits normally knocks the rubber off the blade so on its return sweep scratches the window. As soon as mine starts to get a tiny bit slow its a full strip down clean and grease. (Then I fix the wiper.)[D] guess this is the original mono wiper in your 84 D Id check www.performanceproducts.com and look for that year (might be cheaper). Or check www.mercedesship.com.
That reminds me of an interseting story actually. Probably more relevent to those with the older style mono wiper. Just before I purchased the GFs 84 190E it had a new wiper linkage. MB promise all parts will be available for all cars for 30 years. Except the early wiper linkage of course. The guy sourced a new one from else where and MB paid for it. Result
one thing i know they have the same part number.......hope that helps
I believe that for the jumping monowiper there were two part numbers one for the arm that attaches to the Bosch built motor and another for the arm that goes with the SWF built motor. It would be best to get the one that is specific for your chassis serial number.
You really should join MBCA and take advantage of the local talent among the membership. Also obtain a copy of the mercedes benz W201 Service Library and Steve Nervigs Index. Here is what to do with your wiper issue. Note that the setscrew on the shaft is probably loose already. Also you transmission likely has a hard cover and can only be disassembled off the car. KLater ones are soft and can be lifted
Hello LĂon Sorry for my english too. I will try my best to make it understandable. I removed mine (190e 1992) last october to get access to the motor blower. I do not think that you need to remove a lot of parts to lubricate it. You just need to remove the 2 plastic covers. The one hidding the wiper arm (pull down and push up at the same time. It do not cost a lot if you break it anyway. Here in QuĂbec Canada the part was less than 11) and the larger cover that you skeese out with your letf and right hand so you can see your mechanism as per your picture. I do not beleive that you must go further. I used a ball bearing greace (spray can). You can use white greace but it wont last long. To find ball bearing greace go to a ball bearing dealer. My point of view this is the best greace you can use for this. It is at the same time an al purpose greace. The greace color is a sort of yellow and made for long lasting usage. The brand name is ORAPI bottle 602 - CT14. Hope the above will help you. Uncle benz
then screw back the arm to the motor. Be sure at first that your wiper is off before proceeding. Can you do a pic of your wiper at its rest position and then at its right position to see better Hope the above helped and sorry for my poor english. Hope also that you understand what I am trying to explain... Uncle benz PS If you cannot fix it I suggest you to see my Mechanic who is an expert in mercedes-benz
I dont think thats true--the 190s had three wiper arms. original mono wipe non articulating then the dual washer nozzle wiper arm that would move laterally and on the arm theres an access flap to remove that part of the arm after 88-89 they had a wiper arm that didnt have the flap--and that model took a different wiper blade. (I think the cars that have the lower bodyside cladding are different.) The
Just finished the wiper project. Ordered a new motor from PartsGeek. It came with a crack in the plastic rain cover but I was able to use the original without a problem. Thanks to everyone for the suggestions and older threads. Couldnt have done it without you. Coupla thoughts for anyone thinking about doing this See VT190es post (12192010) re taking the US spec wiper transmission apart for lubrication.
Hi Piotr Although the CD-ROM shows this upgrade for 1988 I found some info at httpwww.geocities.comshvoldummain.html which states that the new wiper starts in September 1984 () New windshield wiper that sweeps the corners (From the W124-model) replaces the two part single windshield wiper with the small blade on the bottombr br My 190D was made in early 1984 so I missed the upgrade - I still have the
I am also using the Bosch Icon 422A (22 inch). The thing I like about the Icon is that the lid that closes in the center also captures the 190s wiper arm to keep the blade from flying off similar to the OEM wipers lock function. Mike

The original post was refering to an 86 190D which would have used the wiper in Richards attached image. That was the 2nd gen monowiper on the W201 introduced in builds around January 1985 and uses a single wiper blade in the jumping corner reaching mechanism. Prior to that the W201 monowiper was a simpler single arc wiper arm that held two blades a long main wiper blade and a separate short blade
This is not unknown in the wonderful world of mercedes. The early W124 wiper arm cover is no longer available. Solution is to buy a new and improved arm. Trim around the ignition in the W124 now comes with a hole in it to accomodate something the W124 doesnt have. Fix..................unknown. __________________ Virginia Beach VA 87 300SDL 95 E300D

Look at all that wonderful space and simplicity in that engine bay Note the conventional wiper though - I thought all W201s had the fancy single arm wiper
I did this job on both my 190Es last month. First time it took me 3 hours but the second time it took 45 minutes Heres a tip if you want to grease inside the wiper arm youll have to detach it from the linkage mechanism. There is a nut that holds it in place. Make sure you mark it before removing it otherwise your wiper range will be messed up and it will hit the bottom mouldings. I didnt mark it the first time and it took me 3 attempts to get the range correct.
