on a W463  I know this topic has come up in the past and probably listed "somewhere" in previous posts. I have the mysterious intermittent wiper fault. if I concentrate on the intermittent wiper while driving it stops after about 10 seconds and doesn't operate again until I stop and restart engine. Then works again for about 10 seconds and stops again. The main wiper speed works fine no matter how hard I concentrate on them. 

I think it might be the intermittent wiper relay and I've got a replacement ready to pop in. I can see the relays above the fuse board on the passenger side but none are clicking and I can't see the wiper relay. It might be that I'm looking in wrong place. 

Anyone tell me where is the intermittent wiper relay located on a 91 W463 300D ? 

Thanks in advance..

Re: Mind over wipers

Hi

Your in the right area

As you look at the fuse board it is behind and to the right hand side, there should be two identical for front and rear intermitant.

The fuses at the front centre, the small relays above this and the Idle Control Unit, Central Locking Control Unit and Twin Wiper Relays located behind and to the right towards the centre console

Part Number should be A005 545 64 24 on both

Hope this helps

Gav

Hi Gav

Following your advice, I've found the 2 x Intermittent wiper relays. Not sure which one is the back wiper so I swapped them round and hey presto - the back wiper now works for 10 seconds and stops. Installed the replacement relay - simple plug in job and both front and back working this morning. 

This type of advice / contact and information is what the GWOA is all about.

Thanks again for help. 
Derek
