Wiper Grommet

Hi everyone. I had to take my windscreen wiper assembly apart due to water getting in and seizing the spindle on the drivers side. Only when I put everything back together, did I notice that the spindle on the drivers side didnt have a rubber grommet round it but the middle one did. I called MB in Ellesmere Port and the parts guy ( who was very helpful by the way) said that Mercedes only list the one grommet for the middle spindle and none for the other, obviously he didnt have an 03 SLK 320 to have a look at. Can anybody please confirm that this is the case on their car.
Cheers, Chesterxiii.

Hi,

IIRC the actual seal is an O ring inside the tube of the Wheel Box to seal the shaft, but of course over the years they degrade and disappear into dust.

I just pack the Wheel Box / Shaft with copperslip and refit

HTH, Cheers Dave

Thank you Dave, I did just that but used Lucas Red n Tacky marine grease, I use the stuff in the bearings on my enduro bike. That should keep the water out for a while. Otherwise its around 100 for a new part.
