BROKEN W124, W201, W202, W210 Monoblade Wiper Transmission Gears
After a brief search I thought I would post to the "General" forum. I am not sure if an administrator can link this to the appropriate sub-forums.
Like others, my monoblade got stuck in the middle and the motor started to smell. I pulled the whole thing apart including the motor and found that the motor was still good after a little cleaning but the "transmission" had broken gears along the housing. They come in two pieces held in place with three screws and a curved metal piece each. I would like to just replace the broken plastic gears, since everything else is just fine. Does anyone have a contact at Bosch or have another source for the gear strips?
If there is no source, how many would like to be able to buy these gear strips? The entire assembly is over $500 new and I'm not sure how much I would trust ten to twenty-five year old gear strips at the junkyard.
Bosch part # on mine is 124 820 43 42 but I'm told the "current" part number is 124 820 23 07 for the ENTIRE assembly.
