R107 Headlamp Wiper System

I bought a spare headlamp wiper motor and linkage from my 280slc and ended up repairing the one on my car. I bought this to use as a spare but was able to get the one originally on my car working. In the mean time I took this motor and linkage totally apart and lubed the wire linkage and cleaned the drive cogs. I pulled the motor apart and cleaned it and also cleaned the brushes and armature. The wires and cogs are all adjusted properly so this unit should basically plug and play if you have the existing wiring for the headlamp wiper system. This can be a bit tricky to install. I only have the wiper mechanism not the wiper arms, the arms are findable if you look around.

I am asking 200$ obo as I have a bunch of time into repairing this unit. It works and is adjusted, all thats needed is to install it and test for proper installation. The motor linkage and motor all runs smoothly. If you don't have the headlamp wiper system wiring install is a bit more interesting but shouldn't be impossible. I could probably help figure out the wiring if needed.

If interested email me at: benzbaron at gmail dot com

I'm not sure about how I'd ship this as it is quite awkwardly shaped. I think the best way to ship would be partially disassembled. Located in SF bay area if anyone is local and interested.

Thanks for looking.

The spacing looks about right, just put it on the Toyota, and then sell the whole care to someone as a Japanese Domestic Market Car for 10K!!!

Honestly, I would be interested, but my car no longer has Euro Lights, and never had wipers, so it would just be to much of a pain to put together a whole system....

It is activated when you wash the windshield with the headlights on, not a common occurance so the system tends to freeze up. I fixed mine a few years ago and now disconnect the washers and run the wipers a few times a year to keep it lubed up.

The headlamp wiper system has been sold, being retrofitted to work on a 560sl.

Thanks for looking and if anyone has any cores they want rebuilt let me know.
