Customer Question

The windscreen wiper on my c200, yr 2000, has packed up.
I bought a new mechanism but it has 5 wires instead of the 4 on the original.
Can this new one be fitted, and what do I do with the 5th wire?

Sorry, the parts code did not go through, system thought it is your phone number. Can you retype and add B in the end?

There are 4 different wiper motor versions for the C-class. Correct original motor part number is *****
the 5-wire wiper motor will not work with your car.
