Wiper & Wash System
WIPER AND WASH SYSTEM FOR THE PAGODA SL
Once again, BOSCH provides the answers for Mercedes-Benz. The windscreen wiper assembly for the Pagoda SL consists of a complex linkage mechanism to drive the two wiper arms in opposing arcs from a single wiper motor that was mounted in the left corner of the bulkhead.
Wiper blades and arms were chrome with a mirror finish on all models of the 230SL. Whereas the 250SL models saw a changeover to a satin finish at chassis number 002980, coinciding with the introduction of blades from a second manufacturer, German firm SWF. Although, BOSCH remained prominent throughout Mercedes’ of the sixties era.
Finally, VDO provided the reservoir and water pump for the windscreen washer, feeding screenwash to a single nozzle in the centre of the scuttle panel atop the cabin air intake.
Squeaks and judders are common nowadays, with lubrication of the axles being overlooked by many owners. SLSHOP offers a tool to grease the accessible spindles and extend the life of your wiper linkage, preventing a repair job that could reach 15 hours of labour. SLSHOP can also supply replacement wiper arms, chrome arms, blades, caps, shafts and locking nuts. Everything you could need for your Pagoda SL’s wiper and wash system.
