W140 wiper gear replacement

The wipers on my 97s500 no longer 'hide' under the hood when off, and the driver side wiper-arm no longer travels in its intended path across the windshield. local MB service provider has quoted me a price of $1905 for parts and $113 labor to fix, under the heading Driver side wiper gearing replace & new blades. I bought new blades (from the dealer) and installed myself. I've also done a bit of searching online and found a 'wiper gear' for the w140 for @ $50.00. however i haven't yet, taken apart the entire wiper assembly to figure out what is going on in there. I plan to repair it myself anyway, and if need be i will fab a new 'gear'. just curious if anyone else has experienced this and possibly been able to fixed it themselves. thanx -Dave
