Headlight wipers? When?

These are the defining accessory in the opinion of my 13 year old daughter and that infatuation has lead us to discover that the only time they operate on our 1987 300SDL 126 is when the lights are on and you operate the windshield washer ! I donít know if itís the same on any other models or years but that has been the only time weíve ever got them to operate.

Yes, park in front of a glass (with some kind of reflection) or just have someone stand in front of ur car.

Turn on headlights and then push to clean windshield and it automaticlaly operates. The car *might* also have to be running

It is triggered by both the headlight or when the (inner) fog light is on. Engine does not need to be running.

hahahahaha

I think he would have figured it out since Feb. 2002, when he posted this, especially since he is a forum moderator of the W126 Benzworld site and has been one for years, and changed his name from snibble to Dr. Grillz (now soon to be a dentist) !!!

I'm not sure such an accomplishment is worthy of any accolades.

I think it was established that I responded to a post that I didn't notice how old the date was. Guess they should change the name to Cynic's Forum.

Actually, OD postings do not up your post count. Of course, you're going to have some time to let that point sink in before your next post...
