I bought a pair of headlight wiper motors off ebay from Canada for my 87 420 SEL, and they do not fit, my question is what is the difference between Euro and US wiper motors, I'm wondering if the motors can fit any other model Benz. They are off a Benz however my Benz mechanic has never seen the type of motor before, they are however Benz motors.

The Euro wiper motors have different mounting brackets and I believe rotate in the opposite direction as the NA version. The aperture in the front valence is about 1.5 in more toward the fender in the Euro valence. See the two following pictures.
