Replacement wiper/indicator arm
« on: 10 January 2022, 05:21 PM »

I have been searching for a new wiper/indicator assembly for my 280. It's made more difficult since each jurisdiction seems to ascribe a different name  for this item. Mercedes have none anywhere on Earth, and my other usual sources are dry also. Can someone help?

I have a NOS one , I think SWF brand.  Not sure if it'll work for you but I swapped mine out on the 6.9 with one of these and it looks and works great.  PM me if you're interested.  I'm guessing all models used the same stalk setup.

Scotty.

 Try Mercbits Auto wreckers in Huntingdale Melbourne Victoria.  (John)

Might be pricier but I'd be surprised if he hasn't got 1 or 2 on a shelf.

Good luck

Thank you for the replies. Incredibly, I spoke to a local fellow who has some wrecks on his property. I can have what I want, he claims. We'll see next week if the offer matches the reality otherwise I'll be in touch again.
