SLK230 Headlight Washer Jets

Availability and price of a pair of SLK 230K Headlight Washer Jets for a 2000 Reg.UK vehicle. I have searched various sites.Plenty of washers.None that look like the ones fitted to my SLK. Have they
been replaced by an updated type ?

R170 experts are on their way.


Not forgetting:

What's wrong with your units? Not many headlamp washers were fitted, if I'm honest, but if they are then depending on what's wrong, like as not someone here would have found a fix. I stripped and cleaned mine which worked wonders (no further trouble) so give us some more info about your problem and we can try and help!

Morning all, thanks for reply. the problem is blocked jets.Water pressure from the pump,blows the jets off the plastic pipes.
The jets fitted look like sealed units.Are they repairable,and how do you take them apart ??

I don't think they are repairable. If they are blocked can you not try and force water the wrong way with a tube on the top and hose pipe. Perhaps leave them soaking in some Milton overnight may help first and/or some thin wire to poke them clear. Dronsfield in Oldham break a lot of Mercedes and may have some good used items on the shelf.
