Customer Question
Pulled wiper away from...

Pulled wiper away from windshield expecting snow. Now the wiper won't go back to normal position.l

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? Do you know if there is power to the wiper motor?

No problem with motor. Just can't put the wiper back against windshield.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Mercedes?

94 c220

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your C220 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Fixing by myself. One person online said to force it back but I am skeptical. It's supposedly a safety system so the wiper doesn't slam against the windshield without a wiper.

Hi, my name is***** wiper arm has a strong lock on it. You have to press harder than you think in order to unlock it and let it back down to the windshield. Put a towel on the windshield if it makes you nervous pushing the arm down then go ahead and push firmly and it will release.

My friend beat me to it. I went out and the car and it was already done. He said he used a screwdriver to release some kind of spring and it went down. Tomorrow he will show me how he did it.
Mercedes Mechanic: Marty, Mercedes Technician replied 7 months ago

No tools are needed. You just lift it up to lock it and push firmly down to release it. Glad you got it done!
