Question Headlight filler panels quuestion:

1)
I am installing my set of Hella European headlights and I think it was mentioned that if I want to add wipers and wiper motors that will function on these lights . I can use the later E320 W124 wiper & wiper motors from a USA E320? should they bolt right in ?

2)
Will the headlight filler panels predrilled for the correct position of the new wiper arms and motors fit in place of the filler panels from my year 1992 W124 300-E?
providing the answer to question one is a yes.

3)I should not assume that the washer pump on the washer bottle is not the same or is it and if not can I still use it ? Do I have to replace the hole washer bottle if it is different?

I need some good answers please?

Thank You all for your patience and help.

Later E320 are same as Euro wiper motors and bolt right onto the Euro lights.

The filler panels for the euro lights fit just like those for USA lights.

No difference in washer bottle or pump. Motors plug right in and work.

http://www.paintscratch.com can match your paint color and make you spray can. Note that most are clear coated.

Yes Bob,

1. The later 94-95 W124 wiper and motors will attach to the bottom of your new euro-lites and function the same way as the original USA ones... I think it also uses the same retainer nut from the USA lites, but don't quote me on that.

2. Wiper panels from the 94-95' lites are necessary to go with the later wiper set-up...just have them painted to match.

3. Nothing at the washer reservoir is changed...just plug the existing washer hoses into the nozzles on the headlite wipers. Re-use the small diameter black rubber tubing...or splurge and buy 6 inches of new stuff !! One more thang, the rubber grommet for the wipers on the 94-95 wiper panels is a W126 part; can't use the old style W124 plastic one as its shaped differently.

Hope this helps...
