Must be another difference between LHD and RHD. I have headlight washers too, but no pedal. It is always triggered together with the windshield washer, just like it was with my w126 420 SEL.

My RHD 450 has the same setup as yours - a secondary electrical pump feeds water to the headlight washers, and is triggered at the same time as windshield washers.

Lots of interesting points here - I had never really considered the difference between LHD and RHD.  In the meantime, here are a few pics so you can see what has been happening to my car.  I had to buy new sills, new old wings, and rear arches.  Currently the car is being painted (only the lower areas affected  :() but hopefully it will be back in a few weeks. Ideally the day after pay-day, rather than the day before!
