hello to all on here

..from UK. Found the thread on windscreen wiper problems (slowness/unpredictability(!)) after a Google search. It was very helpful so decided to join up. Have removed the dodgy assembly & pretty sure its the wiper-motor as the moving parts that I can see, incl. the reciprocating piston, were not gunked up (pity).

Have had my 190 petrol for 16 years and done 100,000 trouble free miles in her (now 185,000)..bit tatty round the edges but breezed through the last MOT test and runs well.

Have a replacement wiper assy on its way..and once I've fitted that fitted I'll see if I can't repair the old one!..is that possible?..can you get brushes for these (if thats the problem?)..how do you get into the oval-shaped housing?

Next job..the heater is very weak.. and its been down as low as -10C at night ..very cold here for a week or so. Had the water-pump replaced back in the Spring ..maybe an air-lock?..or the heater-matrix all clogged up? No leaks now though and cooling sytem works as it should ..except that heater is low on heat.

enough for now.
