Angry Problem with the windshield wiper (W124)

My windshield wiper is not working correctly on my E280 1993 W201. The problem is that stop too early when I turn it off. That is, it stops a couple of inches above its correct position (quite annoying since the viability is somewhat abated). Any one have an idea what the problem might be?

Tanks In advance

Dimmi,
Does your wiper work OK otherwise? In other words, does it operate at normal speed, but just doesn't "park" at the proper position? If so, I'm not sure cleaning and lubing the internals will fix the problem. It's my understanding that lubing the internals is most helpful if you have a situation where the wiping speed has slowed down noticeably.

I don't know anything about how MB engineers the mechanism to get it to "park" properly, but I bet someone on this list does. May want to re-post this and change the subject line to something like "W124 wiper doesn't park properly" or some such if you don't get the answer you need on this thread.

Steve,

My wiper woks fine i.e. no issue regarding the speed. In other words it will just not park properly. I will post a new thread with you suggested headline and I will also try cleaning and lubing the internals. To be honest it feels that the electronics or the sensors controlling the wiper are at fault.

There is a crank-arm that attaches to the wiper motor shaft. If it is not attached in the correct position, the arm won't end up in the correct position when parked. This is about the only thing I can think of that would cause your problem. To repair it you are going to have to remove the wiper assembly, remove the nut at the motor shaft, and reposition the crank arm.
