Bought a 123 sight unseen and have a question on part location

Yes, I know the pitfall of buying a cheap Mercedes... I have bought the car and still not seen it. If it turns out to be a parts car I still got a good buy.

I am told the wipers don't work. In preparation for this repair can someone tell me where the wiper motor and wiper relay are located, so I can properly explain to the wrecking yard what I need? Is it easily accessible under the hood or does the cowl and balance of the wiper mechanism have to be removed to get to it? I have never owned a 123 before and am unfamiliar with them.

BTW its an 85 300D

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

On the 77 - 84 (not sure of the 85) The Wiper motor is located under the cowl and it does have to be removed. It is pop riveted in place. The good thing is that it is an easy job (considering some MB repairs).

If you want I would be glad to take some Pix for you tomorrow. I have one parts car with the cowl off and the motor removed. It works fine if you need it. Let me know if you need the pix.

Thanks for the offer Tom, but I have been looking at 123 pics on ebay and think I now have a pretty good idea of whats involved. Doesn't look too difficult. Thanks again.
