Mercedes-Benz windshield wipers are used to clean your car’s windshield from rain, snow, and debris so that the driver has a clearer view of the road.
There are common windshield wiper issues which Mercedes-Benz drivers experience. Here are a list of possible issues and how to troubleshoot them:
1. Mercedes-Benz windshield wiper runs, but the arms remain static. The windshield wiper arms could have seized at the time where they pivot around the mechanism. The teeth on the wiper motor gear also may have worn out causing the wipers to stop moving. It could be possible that the wiper arms or linkage is broken or the bolt is loose.
Lubricate the mechanism to help free the arms up. Turn off the wiper motor and try to move the wiper arms manually across the windshield. Inspect the link between the wipers and the wiper motor. Tighten the bolts that hold the windshield wiper arm in place. Make sure there is nothing that obstructs the wiper blades too.
2. Wipers stopped working after the arms were replaced. The windshield wiper will no longer work after you properly install the new wiper arms. If the wipers were working earlier, then it should work with the new arms.
Look at the hood. The hood on a Mercedes needs to be closed for the windshield wipers to operate.
