This is a bit of a lazy question, forgive me. I haven't spent ages researching this because time is tight and I wondered if anyone here could easily point me in the right direction.

For the first time ever in my ownership I had cause to use the windshield washer today and whilst one nozzle sprayed water onto the screen, the other did an impersonation of one of those Hudson River fireboats, spraying water into the air at all angles. On inspection I noted that the rubber has perished and the metal nozzles are long since gone. So I need to replace.

Does anyone have the PN for the rubber assembly? I assume (i.e. hope) it's not a difficult job...??!

Thanks in advance.

For my 1990 300E, EPC they are 1248601547 (left) and 1248601647 (right), and they come in black (No 7007) and grey (no 7126) depending on your vehicle trim color.

ok, same PN's for my wife's 1994 E320 wagon, so these probably fit across the board. they have an electrical connection for defrosting, and fit onto a right angle anti-backflow fitting that goes to the hoses. it appears they just push through the hood as no attachment clips are shown.

oops, my 1993 cabriolet uses different PNs. 1248601947 (L) and 1248602047 (R) (same 7007 black, or 7126 grey)

Pagodas posted with questions before, definitely has a 124.
I hooked him up with an antenna motor before.

Get yourself a safety pin and clean out the nozzels. No need to spend any money. Once you're done, you'll probably need to readjusted to nozzel pattern. They swivel in the holder like tiny jets in a hot tub.

"rubber perished, metal nozzle gone, water spraying everywhere"... I think he's way past the safety pin stage.

If that's the case.... they're toast. First time I recall hearing about nozzels failing in that manner.

Good luck to the OP.

be careful what you put in that window washer bottle. I've completely mucked up washer systems (on other non-mercedes) using the wrong crud (rainx brand washer fluid was NASTY). I've never had any issues using fairly dilute 20-10 brand in distilled water.. I add just a bloop of it to a full washer bottle of water. using distilled water will prevent lime from crusting up the nozzles.

Thanks WCG. I'll try the sedan PNs. I can't access the EPC at the moment for some reason so can't check. One more thing I need to sort...

And yes, the query was about a 124. The pagoda has chromed brass nozzles that will outlast my lifetime. The ones on the 124 have perished. I'll post a photo. No amount of pin insertion will fix that!

The centre pipe inside the washer jet that the washer fluid comes out of are made of copper tube and get cloged up with polish as you clean the hood. Or from solution used in the washer bottle can corrode them shut. I use a parafin lamp prick ,, and a spot of penetrating fluid to open them up . You will get the pricks from the hardware shops . The pricks are made for the old type paint striper tool , that the painters use to strip off the old paint from windows and doors. The jet inside block up and the prick is the tool to open them up..
