W140 Windshield Wiper gear

Unfortunately my windshield wiper wasn't functioning as it should have since I bought the car. If I'm not mistaken there's a little plastic gear inside the wiper arms, that push the driver side's wiper into the corner of the windshield, so this way this effect can be achieved:
If you concentrate on the base of the wipers, you can see they are moving up and down very quickly when they reach the corner.

Anyway story time over, anyone know of a good replacement gear, that will actually work?
I don't want to risk buying a used one, because junkyard dealers would probably only sell me the whole wiper assembly and I don't know of a good replacement.
I've heard stories about the wiper arm gears on ebay that even though they are brand new they are a piece of junk, since they are made of dogshit quality plastic, so can someone please guide me in the right direction, where to buy a proper one?

Just found this one, but it's made of bronze and I'm not sure if it'll mess up other things in there:
Any ideas?
