Headlight Wiper Question

As I work to become more familiar with this model before I make a purchase, as I have inspected potential cars I have noticed something about the 1990-95 headlights that have me pondering:

The headlight lenses have three little "nubs" or pins that stick out from them. I know these are for headlight aiming equipment. However, I'm at a loss to understand how the headlight wipers move freely over the headlights to clean them when they are actuated.

Don't they run into these pins? Are they expected to just move over them?

I'm very familiar with MB headlight wipers on other models, but I don't recall ever seeing a design like this.

Amazes me that here in darkest of Africa with dirt roads mosts Mercs sent to South Africa were not specced for stupid light windscreen wipers:cool:

They look terrible especially when when not level in the off position. Also we do see many SLs for sale here with the wipers and then know that it is a UK import usually with terrible rust problems:eek:
