I bought some Valeo ones last year my local accessory shop ordered them. Still expensive at &16330.
Ebay is your friend
you wont find them as standard in a shop (except a merc dealer) and they are expensive (beyond my disability pension) - best bet is ebay but note they are of different lengths to each other. you can fit bosch but you have to fit washers extra. If particularly strapped for cash you can do what I did - but only if youre really really in a hole) 1st get a pair of Bosch super 7s then hacksaw off the centre
Thanks for your help everyone benz Bling
You need a new unit it gets full of water and shorts out the board in the wiper motor.

It is quite common apparently. Have you read this thread httpwww.benzworld.orgforumsv-cl...ification.html
Theres a control box and relay behind the panel on the rear near side of my 108cdi that operates the rear wiper heated screen etc. It could be a fault in there perhaps
hi in process of fixing my wiper motor on vito 638 found a common fault with wiper motor seizing up due to water from washer jet system easy fix is to drill out pop rivets take out seized shaft but dont hit ends with hammer buggers to get out anyway once out regrease and reassemble unit after drilling holes for the 8 screws sometimes in unlucky if still not working under the white plastic drive cog
its unfortunate that the motor fills with water and seizes... its too common...... main cause is the washer hose connection... drill a hole in the bottom of the case... it lets the water out but causes corrosion at the bottom of the door (you cant win) the relay fuse assembly is inside the left hand rear door on a 2 door model... and as said before.. inside the left rear panel on a tailgate model (although
Sounds like a control module give the dealers a call or go and look at the parts list and it will give you a location.

I havent but would like one. Just go to the dealers and look on there screen.
not control unit it eeds a new switch. A639 545 01 24 if my memory serves me correct may be different depending on what side of the car your on
the wiper is a simple nut on the outside of the spindle and a couple of securing screws on the inside. there are no special covers for the holes as the wipers are one of the few standard bits on all windowed vitos. Ive seen blind grommets used - from an electrical or electronics or car shop (including halfords)..... Ive also seen plumbing blanking plugs used.. the type used to blank off tap holes in a new sink.
I used sink blankers from plumb base on Malcolms suggestion on my 638. Looks fantastic almost stock. You can even get Crome ones for added bling. My white ones were a couple of quid and took a few mins to fit. Be prepared to loose some knuckle skin though.
On my old 115 i left the rubber in from the spindle and a wine cork black plastic type fits tight in the hole. I am sure ebay will find you the right size grommet for a better job.
no particular problems on 638 wipers.... if it has a cover remove it to make sure it has no water in it (more common on 639s) I have had 3 638s and 2 had wiper problems... BOTH had a wiring break between the wiper and where it goes along the van (behind left hand side (NS) rear upper panel) one worked perfectly when a patch cable was used from behind this panel to the motor the other only worked when
Thank you Ill have a look tomorrow if I get time. I did look up which fuse it was and thd owners manual says its the same one ax the front wipers they work so Id discounted the fuse Ill check the other things you suggested. Thanks again Steve
Thanks for putting this up. I was thinking about new blades just yesterday Sent from my LT26i using Tapatalk 2
Guys you can retro fit the later type blades on the 638 far better than the old style. I had them on my V280 with the washer on them.
I asked the question after buying and they dont o well. Sent from my vito
well ive swapped the motor and its definately not that thinking probably the switch any one close to leicestershire got one i can try before i go and buy one thanks
hey mine are similar only fast works not inter or slow Pain in the ass really ive been told it might be a relay no idea where that is tho so let me know if your new switch works
Should be easy at the engine bay remove the wiper arm from the lever at the motor remove the three screws from the gear assembly remove the wiring plug and remove the motor with the gear assembly.
Lets face it lads ...... All vitos are total rust buckets. mercedes electrolite anti corrosion process must be the worst in the automotive world. I cant think of a manufacturer since British Leyland that could be worse. Old world Fiat used to be the kings of rust but even they have moved on. mercedes (not sure about the rest of the brand) but the vito line has massive problems or has had a serious
